With a win over KXIP, CSK will finish on top of the IPL 2019 points table. A top-two finish will give the team two chances to qualify for the final.
While the winner of the first qualifier will directly enter the final, the losing team will take on the winner of the eliminator in the second qualifier.
KXIP, on the other hand, need to defeat CSK by an unimaginable margin to remain in the contention for the playoffs.
CSK were asked to bat in the crucial encounter as KXIP skipper Ravichandran Ashwin won the toss and opted to field.
"Nothing really has changed and that's how we look at it. Last game in the league stage, gives us an opportunity to sort everything out before the important part of the tournament gets in," Dhoni said at the toss.
