    Date & Time: 01 November, 2020 at 3:30PM IST
    Sheik Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE


    Kings XI Punjab:

    • In form top order. KL Rahul, Mandeep Singh, Chris Gayle, and Nicholas Pooran are in splendid form.
    • Mohammad Shami and young Bishnoi are in fine form.
    • After a string of losses, they have now finally stuck together as a unit.

    Chennai Super Kings:

    • The form of young Ruturaj Gaikwad.
    • They managed to win the last two matches.


    Kings XI Punjab:

    • Weak middle order. If the top order doesn’t fire, they are in very serious trouble. They would need timely support from Maxwell, and the rest of the middle order.
    • Except for young Arshdeep, KXIP’s death bowling is pretty ordinary. They haven’t been able to find the right man for the death overs.

    Chennai Super Kings:

    • Apart from Ruturaj and Jadeja none of their batsmen has shown consistency in the recent batting.
    • CSK does have a weak batting order, which is not suited for T20 cricket.
    • The form of MS Dhoni is a huge concern.
    • They have been pretty ordinary in all departments of the game. MS Dhoni and co. suddenly seemed to have completely forgotten how to win games.
