The CSK will play their last match of IPL 2020 against KXIP on Sunday afternoon at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

For the first time in their IPL history, CSK will not feature in the tournament’s second round.

The Super Kings will aim to end their campaign on a high by completing a double over the Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2020.

MS Dhoni and his team spoiled the party for the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last two matches. The skipper will expect his men to end the season with a hat-trick of victories.

Kings XI Punjab have won five of their last six matches. They had a five-match winning streak heading into their previous game against the Rajasthan Royals.

Kings XI Punjab have a dismal win-loss record of 0-3 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in IPL 2020. Their bowlers have not been at their best while playing in Abu Dhabi.

Meanwhile, the Chennai Super Kings have also lost their previous two games at the ground.
