The 49th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
Three-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings are already out of the tournament and only have the pride to play for. They can now be considered as ‘party spoilers’ for the other teams. They have won their previous match against Royal Challengers Bangalore and would be aiming to keep the same momentum on Thursday against Kolkata Knight Riders. They are out of the tournament already, they have nothing to lose. In such a situation they might become more furious and will try their best to drag other teams down.
Talking about Kolkata Knight Riders, they are currently sitting on the fifth spot with 12 points in the points table. They have lost their previous match against Kings XI Punjab and now they would be aiming to win this match against CSK on Thursday, in order to grab the ‘crucial two points’.
Earlier in the tournament when these two sides met, Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Chennai Super Kings by ten runs.

The last few matches have witnessed low total on this pitch. Batting second here has been tough when the targets are over 170. The pitch could get slower as the match progresses, with the pacers likely to vary their pace towards the back end of the innings.
Both the sides will be expecting 160-170 if they bat first as dew will not make an impact.
Weather will be quite suitable to play a game. The Skies will be clear and humidity will increase as the game progresses.
