Table-toppers Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will aim to maintain their winning run with a victory against Eoin Morgan's Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
In their previous match, Chennai overcame the challenge of Royal Challengers Bangalore, winning the match by six wickets.
Chennai, bolstered by 38 from opener Ruturaj Gaikwad, overcame Bangalore's 156 for six with 11 balls to spare as Dhoni won the latest battle with his successor as India's captain.
Kolkata have won their last two matches, beating Mumbai Indians and RCB since the start of the second-half of the tournament.
Opener Venkatesh Iyer smashed 53 and put on an attacking second-wicket partnership of 88 with Rahul Tripathi, who made an unbeaten 74, as Kolkata chased down their target of 156 in 15.1 overs against Mumbai.
Iyer has made an early impact in the tournament after his match-winning unbeaten 41 in the team's previous win over RCB.
"The first two games in this second phase has been a great template for us to play. There's only one way for us to go in the points table, and that's up," Morgan said.
