KXIP vs CSK Dream11 Team | Kings XI Punjab vs Chennai Super Kings Match Preview | Fantasy Team

Kings XI Punjab will fight it out in their last group stage match against Chennai Super Kings in Mohali on Sunday. The home team will want to give their best to win the game and qualify for the playoffs stage with a miracle. As is stands, KXIP will need to win their match comprehensively with Sunrises Hyderabad, KKR and Rajasthan Royals losing their matches to have a chance at progressing.

To put it plainly, Kings XI Punjab have a very slight chance of making it to the playoffs. Yet, they must give everything and see where it takes them at the end of the day, Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, have a much simpler equation. They are already through to the playoffs with the highest points tally in the group stage so far.

Nonetheless, CSK will not slack down and they will want to win their last group stage game to prepare for the playoffs in the best fashion.
