After being knocked out of the playoff series, Chennai will step out on the field to ruin Kolkata’s party in the history of the Indian T20 League. While, on the other hand, Kolkata with the most significant possible margin, will come out to get a win under their belt to get into the top 4 of the league, securing their seat in the playoffs.
The last time the two teams met each other, Kolkata won the game by a 10-run margin. At the moment, Kolkata is ranked just outside the top 4 bracket in the 12 matches they have played in, with 6 wins and 6 losses to their credit. And in the 12 games, Chennai is put at the bottom of the table with 4 wins to their credit. In this match, a tough challenge awaits Chennai, and if they win this game, it would be nothing but a massive upset for Kolkata.
On the day of this match, the weather in Dubai will be clear, with no chance of rainfall and temperatures hovering between 30-26 degrees Celsius.
The Dubai wicket is very sluggish, with more progress being achieved by the spinners and the medium pacers. At times, the ball seems to pause, and if the bowlers hit the right lines and don’t bowl too fast, it’ll be challenging for the batting side.

MS Dhoni (c&wk), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, N Jagadeesan, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Imran Tahir, Mitchell Santner, Monu Kumar, Deepak Chahar

Kolkata Knight Riders are very much the better of the two teams going into this fixture, considering their loss. No doubt CSK will put up a good performance, but the must-win nature of this game will push KKR to be at their best, and they could knock the Super Kings out.
