GT vs KKR IPL 2024 Match 63 Match-Ups: Top 5 Player Battles to Watch Out For

Gujarat Titans and Kolkata Knight Riders will lock horns in the 63rd match of the IPL 2024 on Monday evening. The KKR have already sealed their top-two berth in the playoffs, while the GT are still trying to survive in the competition. Meanwhile, in this post, we will take a look at the top five player battles to watch out for in the GT vs KKR contest.

GT vs KKR Top 5 Player Battles

1 – Shubman Gill vs Mitchell Starc

Matches 4 (ODI)
Runs 38
Balls 45
Outs 3

Shubman Gill is the leader of the GT batting unit but he is often troubled by the in-swinging deliveries. Mitchell Starc is the master of inswing from his left-arm angle with the new ball. The Aussie pacer has already dismissed Gill 3 times in 4 ODI meetings so far.

2 – David Miller vs Sunil Narine

Matches 13 (T20)
Runs 94
Balls 72
Outs 0

David Miller is the backbone of the GT’s middle order and Sunil Narine often controls the proceedings in the middle overs for the KKR. Interestingly, the South African southpaw has dominated against the West Indian mystery spinner so far and hasn’t been dismissed even once in 12 T20 meetings between the two,

3 – Phil Salt vs Umesh Yadav

Matches 1 (T20)
Runs 0
Balls 2
Outs 1

Phil Salt is known to dominate against the new ball and he will look to do the same against GT as well. However, Umesh Yadav is taking care of the new-ball duties for the Titans and he has already dismissed the Englishman once for a duck.

4 – Andre Russell vs Rashid Khan

Matches 13 (T20)
Runs 53
Balls 47
Outs 5

Andre Russell usually walks out to bat towards the death for KKR and dominates with his brute power. Meanwhile, Rashid Khan is usually bowling after 10 overs for the Titans, including at the death. The Afghan spinner will be the key to stopping Dre Russ as he has dismissed the big West Indian 5 times in 13 T20 meetings so far.

5 – Shreyas Iyer vs Noor Ahmad

Matches 1 (T20)
Runs 1
Balls 3
Outs 1

Shreyas Iyer is known for his aggressive batting and dominating the spinners with the ease. Meanwhile, Noor Ahmad is bowling in the middle phase for GT, trying to choke the runs and taking wickets at the same time. The Afghan spinner has faced the right-handed batter only once in T20 cricket and he picked up his wicket. It will be interesting to see if Shreyas Iyer manages to bounce back with some big hits against Noor Ahmad.
