The 21st match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between the Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
This game must start at 19:30 CET (18:00 local time) (14:00 UTC). The game will be broadcast on the Star Sports Network (available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Live streaming will also be available on Disney + Hotstar.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has had a mixed season in the 2020 IPL so far. They lost their first match against Mumbai Indians (MI), but lost twice against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR).
However, in the last match they ended up losing to the Delhi Capitals (DC) and at that point they had two wins and two defeats. In their upcoming game, the Knights will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
The Super Kings won their first match against MI but lost three games in a row, which raised some doubts. But in the last match against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), they proved why they are a champion country and recorded 10 goal wins.
The win should give them high confidence to progress in the tournament. They want to get the most out of their momentum and maybe win another tournament.
However, at the same time, KKR hopes to bounce back instead of being late in the tournament.

Kolkata Knight Riders Key Players
Eoin Morgan: Eoin Morgan entered his own game zone after the game. He played a few quick strokes in the tournament but didn’t hit a big hit. It could explode against CSK at IPL 2020.
Nitish Rana: Nitish Rana scored an impressive 58 points in his last game against DC. He looks like a nice touch and could be helped to play a big shot against CSK.
Sunil Narine: Sunil Narine is the most valuable player in the established KKR. By bat or ball, he is the winner of the match for Dinesh Kartik. Hope it’s useful against CSK.
Chennai Super Kings Key Players
Faf du Plessis: The Faf du Plessis looked great at the tournament. On average, 92 with three-fifty in five games, he did everything a player could expect. Expect him to fight the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Shane Watson: The big man finally found his mojo with an unbeaten record of 83 out of 53. The thing about Watson is that in his time he will win the game for you. He has the form behind it now and will look to wear it in his next game against KKR.
Dwayne Bravo: Dwayne Bravo was amazing when he came back. The Abu Dhabi site is a slow door and Bravo with his knife could prove fatal to KKR.
