IPL 2022: KKR vs GT – Team News, Predicted Lineup & Match Preview

KKR vs GT

It is super Saturday, we all know what it means, it is time to double your dose of action today. First up, we have Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) going head-to-head with Gujarat Titans (GT) in the game number 35.

KKR got off to a strong start in the competition, winning three of their first four games. Three losses in the last three matches, though, have caused them to reconsider their tactics. The team has not been able to match its previous season’s performance. Venkatesh Iyer and Varun Chakravarthy have taken a hit, which is cause for concern. Apart from Umesh Yadav, the Indian bowlers have also failed to show up.

The Gujarat Titans, on the other side, have emerged as one of the tournament’s strongest teams. They’ve won five of their last six games and are comfortably in second place in the standings. Despite missing skipper Hardik Pandya, GT upset defending champions Chennai Super Kings in their previous encounter. The team has multiple players that have won matches for GT on their own, and this is their strongest suit.

KKR vs GT – Match Details

Match #35

Venue: Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai.

Date & Time: 23rd April at 3:30 PM IST and Local Time

Live Streaming: Star Sports Network and Disney+Hotstar

Pitch Report

CSK managed to chase down a total of 155 on the last ball of the previous game at this stadium, and the bowlers had plenty of support.

Any score greater than 180 is going to be difficult to beat. The captain who wins the toss, on the other hand, is likely to choose to bowl first because the wickets have been unpredictable.

Top Performer

Kolkata Knight Riders

Shreyas Iyer looked fantastic in the last game, indicating that he may have rediscovered his form. He scored 85 runs off 51 deliveries to keep the side in the game while chasing a 218-run mark. He has two half-centuries in the last three games and is expected to play a significant impact in this encounter.

Gujarat Titans

Hardik Pandya has been a standout performer for the Golden Tigers, both with the bat and with the ball. Despite missing one game, he is the team’s leading run-scorer.

Predicted XI

Kolkata Knight Riders: Venkatesh Iyer, Aaron Finch, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakaravarthy.

Gujarat Titans: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami.
