Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab face off in Match No. 53 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in what would be the last league game for both sides. While CSK have been knocked out of contention for a place in the playoffs, KXIP still have plenty to play for as a win in this contest will take them ahead of SunRisers Hyderabad on No. 4 in the points table with 14 points. Both KXIP and SRH have 12 points at this point but SRH have a higher net run rate than KXIP. While CSK are only playing for pride, they showed they wouldn’t be pushovers by beating Kolkata Knight Riders. Hence, KXIP should not expect a walkover and expect a wounded team to try its best to finish a disappointing season on a high. (LIVE SCORECARD)
