GT vs KKR: It is going to be a battle of resurgence and invincibility as the Kolkata Knight Riders clash with the Gujarat Titans in the latest chapter of IPL rivalries as Ahmedabad lights up in joy.
Kolkata Knight Riders would be coming to this fixture on the back of a win against RCB where a Shardul Thakur-special coupled with an electric effort from the spinning trio of the Knights saw them register a mammoth win to open their account in IPL 2023.
Gujarat Titans, on the contrary, have started their title defence in fine fashion as they took down CSK and DC in consecutive games. It was an imperious show of dominion for the Titans in their preceding fixture where the Capitals were outclassed by the reigning crown-holders, thanks to some swashbuckling strikes from B Sai Sudarshan and David Miller.
This contest would witness a resurgent yet bruised KKR batting line-up meet a soaring Gujarat bowling in a battle that they must win if they are to keep the might of the Titans’ batting at bay. With the arrival of Jason Roy in the fold, it will be interesting to see how the Knights line up while for Gujarat with Dasun Shanaka in the mix but still to arrive, they can very well twist and turn the game according to their own whims.
GT vs KKR: Pitch and weather report
The surface at Narendra Modi Stadium is always a fine batting track and played host to a string of impressive run-fests. The ball doesn’t move around by a mile and offers a decent mix of pace and carry. However, the spinners have a say in the latter half of the game.
The weather would be bright and sunny and it is going to be a full-blown clash of the willow and leather where two teams teeming with confidence would be going head on for each other’s jugular.
