After suffering their first defeat in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) return to their fortress as they take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in the 18th match on Saturday in Chennai.

While the MS Dhoni-led unit is coming into this game on the back of a loss against was the Rohit Sharma s Mumbai Indians (MI), KXIP, led by Ravichandran Ashwin, a former CSK player, will be fresh from their stunning win against Delhi Capitals (DC). The Punjab unit were almost down and out before Mohammed Shami and Sam Curran turned the tables on Shreyas Iyer and Co. to snatch a win from the jaws of defeat.

Although both the teams have played four matches each and won three each, KXIP are ahead of CSK in the points, courtesy a better net run-rate. A win in this game will take either of them at the top of the points table with 4 wins and 8 points against their name.
