Both CSK and KKR have registered two wins out of as many games post IPL's resumption in the UAE. Both the teams would be desperate to outwit each other in their bid to register a hat-trick of victories.
 
Another common factor post the tournament's resumption is that CSK and KKR have registered both their thumping wins against Royal Challengers Bangalore and defending champions Mumbai Indians.
