Chennai will be expected to shrug off a rare loss and effectively seal a playoff berth against Bangalore in the Indian Premier League on Sunday.

Defending champions Chennai, who lost to Hyderabad in the previous game for only their second loss this season, will get to 16 points with a win at the Chinnaswamy and it should be enough to guarantee a place in the top-four.

Bangalore will be fired up after the win against Kolkata on Friday night when they finally managed to defend despite a brutal assault from Andre Russell and Nitish Rana. It was only their second win in nine games in the season so far though it still keeps them mathematically alive in the tournament.
