IPL 2020 | KKR aim playoff berth as CSK look to play for pride at Dubai
Posted 29 Oct 2020 11:08 AM


MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will step out on Thursday to lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Dubai International Stadium. While it will be a high-pressure match for the Kolkata side, the Yellow Army will just be playing for pride.
CSK, for the first time in their IPL history, missed the playoffs berth. The franchise hasn't been able to leave a mark this season, with most of their players failing to achieve consistency. With just four wins so far, Dhoni's men are languishing at the bottom of the points table, contrary to the expectations of fans.
No one could've imagined that CSK would be playing a game for pride at this stage of the season. Their last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) must've given them some much-needed confidence amid their torrid run. By delivering an impressive show with the bat, CSK pocketed the encounter by eight wickets. With two games to go, the Chennai side, one of the most followed IPL sides, will be having just one thing in mind-- put a smile on fans' face.
With Ruturaj Gaikwad hitting the right cord in his previous game, CSK would be less worried about their top-order woes. Youngster Sam Curran, who has been impressive throughout the season, will also aim to shine in the last two games. The England all-rounder has scored 173 runs this season along with scalping 13 wickets.
