Overview

It's an all IPL clash in the second semi-final of the Champions League T20, when the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) take on the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Both teams have made it to the last four in contrasting fashion, as the Punjab based outfit are on a hot streak and come into this game having been unbeaten this tournament, where as the Chennai team had to depend on the results of other teams to make the cut.

KXIP have an explosive lineup, with captain George Bailey leading the way with the likes of Virender Sehwag, David Miller and the explosive Glenn Maxwell providing the support.

However, Maxwell is yet to light up this tournament like he did during the seventh edition of the IPL earlier this year.

On the other hand, CSK also have an equally strong lineup with captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni leading the way with Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo and Brendan McCullum serving the side well during the tournament.

They also have a strong bowling unit, as Ravinchandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohit Sharma can trouble any batting lineup on a given day.

This is familiar territory for the Chennai boys as they made the semi-final last year and were champions in 2010, whereas it is the first time KXIP are playing in this tournament.
