    IPL 2020 live score: CSK 130-1 (Overs 16): That's FIFTY from Ruturaj Gaikwad. Wow that's the third successive one from this youngster. People must be thinking had he played from the start, would that have changed CSK's fortunes?

  • 18:21 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: CSK 82-1 (Overs 9.3): WICKET! Finally KXIP have got a wicket. Earlier KXIP skipper and the whole management are unhappy with the decision of overturning the decision of Ruturaj Gaikwad. Even when the soft signal was out how can the Third umpire think otherwise? He should have deferred to the on-field umpire. Many of the experts too sound sympathetic to KXIP's cause.

  • 18:14 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: CSK 69-0 (Overs 8): FOUR to finish the over but a huge controversy erupting in the field here. Mandeep Singh and the whole KXIP was convinced that Ruturaj Gaikwad was out as he has taken clean catch to dismiss him. The issue went to the third umpire and he felt otherwise.

  • 18:06 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: CSK 62-0 (Overs 7): Murugan Ashwin came on for the first time and has kept it tight. A false shout meanwhile for Faf du Plessis. KXIP skipper KL Rahul was convinced, Faf has nicked it but the TV replays showed something else.

    IPL 2020 live score: CSK 57-0 (Overs 6):HUGE over for CSK. Faf was waiting for Bishnoi it seemed. Hit him for a FOUR and then a SIX! Expensive to say the least at this stage of the game.

  • 17:50 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: CSK 32-0 (Overs 4): Ten off that one but most importantly a DROPPED catch and that too of Faf du Plessis, And what does Faf do next? He executes a ramp and hits the next ball for a maximum! That's adding insult to injury.

  • 17:45 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: CSK 22-0 (Overs 3): So, eleven off the over and the highlight? Definitely that huge SIX from Ruturaj Gaikwad. He came down the track and gave it a whack over Mid On.

  • 17:08 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: KXIP 129-6 in 18 overs. A wicket in the first ball, but Deepak Hooda smashes two sixes off Lungi Ngidi to keep KXIP going. He's playing a little blinder.

  • 16:54 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: KXIP 113-6 in 17.1 overs. WICKET - Neesham c Gaikwad n Ngidi. A superb catch in the deep by Gaikwad. Neesham looks to pull but miscues to deep mid, Gaikwad runs across, dives and catches. Loss in momentum again.

    IPL 2020 live score: KXIP 108-5 in 16.2 overs. WICKET - Mandeep b Jadeja. Looks to pull across but ball skids and hits the stumps. Deepak Hooda going well at one end, so quite a bad shot that.

  • 16:22 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: KXIP 68-3 in 10.4 overs. WICKET - Nicholas Pooran c Dhoni b Thakur. Short ball, Pooran looks to pull but edges to the keeper. Gone for just 2, and KXIP are in trouble.

  • 16:19 (IST)

IPL 2020 Highlights, CSK vs KXIP, Today's Match at Abu Dhabi: As It Happened

IPL Live Score 2020, Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab, Latest Updates: IPL 2020 live score: IPL 2020 live score: CSK 154-1 (Overs 18.5): And THAT'S IT! It's all over for Punjab. They looked set for a playoff spot after that resurgence where they won five games in a row. They had to win one out of the next two but they couldn't do so. Their campaign is over.

 Preview

It is a huge match for Kings XI Punjab - a match they cannot afford to lose. A win will massively increase their probability of making it to the playoffs and a loss will throw them out of the race - it is as simple as that for KXIP.

After staging a remarkable fightback which saw them win five matches in a row, KXIP went down against the Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi. Although KL Rahul remains the highest scorer of the season with 641 runs in 13 matches, his self transformation from aggressor to accumulator has seen his strike rate take a massive dip - it currently stands at a below-par 130.54. The KXIP skipper is at his destructive best when he attacks the bowling. Chris Gayle has made a huge impact to KXIP's success since his inclusion in the XI. Nicholas Pooran has been a revelation with his hitting prowess and has the third-highest strike rate (of 173.76) in the tournament. KXIP would be hoping that Glenn Maxwell will finally produce one innings of substance after failing the entire tournament.

The bowling will be led by Mohammed Shami - who, along with Jasprit Bumrah has been the best bowler of the tournament. Shami has picked 20 wickets in 13 matches at a strike rate of just 14.9 - more significantly all his 20 wickets have either been of the opposition top-middle order batsmen or big players batting lower in the order.

CSK are out of the race of the playoffs and are now playing spoilers for other teams in the tournament. They won their last couple of matches - against RCB and KKR - both in Dubai and would be looking to end the tournament on a high. Faf du Plessis has been their most outstanding batsman scoring 401 runs in 12 matches at a strike rate of 140.7 - he was brilliant in the first half of the tournament. Ravindra Jadeja has excelled in his avatar as finisher for CSK this season - he has a strike rate of 171.85 in IPL 2020. The bowling has been decent but not outstanding. Sam Curran is their highest wicket-taker of the season with 13 wickets.
