Mohali, May 5: Kings XI Punjab won the toss and opted to field against Chennai Super Kings here at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Sunday.

Chennai, who have already booked their berth in the Indian Premier League (IPL) playoffs, will look to cement their grip on the top spot in the IPL Points Table. For Punjab to have any chance qualifying for the playoffs, they need to beat CSK by a huge margin and also hope that KKR lose by a similarly big margin.

Chennai are playing with the same XI, while hosts have brought in Harpreet Brar to replace Arshdeep Singh.
Chennai Super Kings: Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(w/c), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir
