Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of Match 24 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Mumbai, on Saturday. I am Shiamak Unwalla and I will bring you all the live updates from this game. READ Match preview

This is the sixth game for both the teams in the tournament so far. CSK, having won four games and a loss stand comfortably on the second spot in the table. However, KXIP have been off to a shaky start in the tournament so far and have managed to win just a couple, followed by three losses as they stand, a place above bottom, i.e. seventh in the table. IPL 2015: Schedule with venue details

CSK have been magnificent through the IPL 2015 so far and have lost only one game. On  the other hand, KXIP is a team that is trying to work its way back up after a disappointing start. A Super Over victory in the game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) may just be the inspiration they are looking for. IPL 2015: Points Table and Team Standings
