Both these team have been on a roll post IPL's resumption, and would look to continue their winning streak when the two most impressive sides of the tournament's second phase. would be desperate to outwit each other in their bid to register a hat-trick of victories.

While CSK overpowe Rohit Sharma-less MI by 20 runs and they registered a seven-wicket victory over RCB. As for Kolkata Knight Riders, they tamed RCB and MI by nine and seven wickets respectively.

    Shubman Gill gets run out

    WICKET! CSK strike in the first over and it's Gill who has to walk back. Right after surviving the LBW decision, which he reviewed and got a life, the KKR opener finds himself in the middle of a fuss. A bit of confusion and Gill falls short of the crease. Great throw from Rayudu and CSK get the breakthrough. KKR: 11/1 after 1 over.

    Chahar to Gill: FOUR, FOUR

    That's a ferrocious start from KKR. Gill, you beauty. Superb stroke by the youngster. Clobbered the first one over mid-off and then drives the next one through cover, beating the fielder. Back-to-back boundaries.
