Pune: Needing a win from three games to book a play-offs berth, former champions Chennai Super Kings take on table toppers Sun Risers Hyderabad in an Indian Premier League match here tomorrow.

The Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Super Kings started their campaign, after returning to the T20 League from a two-year ban, on a high by winning five out of their first six games before losing to defending champions Mumbai Indians.

They now have 14 points from 11 matches and they just need one win from the three games in hand. Last night's defeat to 2008 inaugural edition champions Rajasthan Royals, also returning to the fold after two years, has made CSK wait in their quest for a play-offs spot.

With 18 points to their credit, SRH, led astutely by New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson will also look to consolidate their top spot and ensure a top-two finish at the end of the league stage.
