Kolkata Knight Riders will look to strengthen their chances of booking a berth in the playoffs but Chennai Super Kings may spoil their party on Thursday. CSK have nothing to lose as they have already been knocked out of IPL 2020 but that may encourage them to play freely. Moreover, Chennai is coming off a commanding victory and would want to salvage some more pride. KKR on the other hand have had a stop-start campaign and a loss vs Punjab pushed them out of the top 4. Though CSK enjoy a healthy 13-8 head-to-head record vs the Knight Riders, Kolkata snatched a thrilling victory from MS Dhoni's men the last time they faced each other this season. But after a morale-shattering loss, KKR need to bring out their A game in Dubai in order to go through.
