CSK will lock horns with KXIP on Sunday to play their last IPL match of season 2020. CSK has already played 13 games so far and they cannot qualify for playoffs this season due to their disheartening performance, so the game against KXIP will be their returning point to the home. KXIP is still in the hopes of getting qualified for the business end of the tournament. Last loss against Rajasthan Royals have dragged their campaign a little backwards, however, there are still some hopes.

MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings have nothing to lose now. They must be eying to finish the tournament on a happy note. They have found a bit of stability in recent few games but their opening pair is still an issue to resolve. Last match hero Ravindra Jadeja has been one of the consistent performers for CSK this season. The southpaw snatched victory from the mouth of KKR by hitting 2 consecutive sixes in last 2 balls. 

Ruturaj Gaikwad would definitely want to carry his sublime form of recent past to the last game of tournament too. He has played 2 brilliant knocks for CSK in last 2 games against RCB and KKR. He is one of the positives that CSK will carry in 2021 edition of IPL.

Sam Curran has been so flexible and at times destructive for the opponents. He managed to play every possible role in the team to make his side win.

The match against Rajasthan Royals, Kings XI Punjab would definitely want to forget that game as they shattered their match winning streak very comfortably. Batting of Kings looked solid being led by the leading run-scorer of the tournament. KL Rahul has been undefeated till now in the race of Orange Cap. 

This will be a must-win game for Kings XI Punjab, but this will not be enough to satisfy their Playoffs campaign. A lot depends upon other team stats. There is a lot of permutation and Combination to do for the management. 

The flamboyant Chris  Gayle is been in good touch. Chris Gayle scored 99 runs in the last match against Rajasthan Royals but that was not enough. Kings desperately need to work in their bowling department. They have been leaking runs in the middle. At this high stage, this should be corrected in order to keep their hopes alive.
