So the second match will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Saturday’s first match will be played at Sheikh Zayed International Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The match is just as important for Kings XI Punjab.

The same Kings XI Punjab head coach Anil Kumble had made it clear in the last match that he could not get a chance in the playing XI due to Chris Gayle not feeling well in the last match. But now Chris Gayle’s play against Kolkata is considered almost certain.
