The resurgent (CSK) would look to put a stiff competition to (KKR) in the 21st match of Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. CSK made a superb comeback in and ended its three-match losing streak, when led side defeated Kings XI Punjab by 10 wickets in its previous IPL encounter.


Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, is coming into today's match after suffering a defeat against Delhi Capitals in a high scoring game at Sharjah. KKR may look to change its combination and could replace Sunil Narine with Tom Banton at the top of the batting order. Narine failed to make any impact as an opener in and it seems as if time to go with regular opener instead of pinch hitter. Banton was brilliant at the top against Pakistan and Ireland for his national side.
