Kings XI Punjab will be knocked out of IPL 2020 if they fail to bag a win against Chennai Super Kings in what will be a straight shootout to go into the final phase of the T20 tournament. 

While KXIP lost their last match to Rajasthan Royals, CSK would be hoping to end IPL 2020 on a high and continue their winning run against KXIP.
