The 13th match of the ongoing IPL 2023 will see Kolkata Knight Riders taking on defending champions Gujarat Titans on Sunday (April 9). The match will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The Men in Purple made a stunning comeback in the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore to register their first win of the tournament.  

Batting first, Kolkata were 89/5 and again looking down the barrel when Shardul Thakur turned the tides. The all-rounder smashed 68 runs off just 29 balls and stitched a 109-run stand with Rinku Singh for the 6th wicket to power the hosts to 204.

The spin trio of Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy, and Suyash Sharma then derailed Royal Challengers’ chase as the visitors got bundled out for 123. The Men in Purple will be high on confidence and look for a big win.

GT vs KKR Dream11 Prediction

Varun Chakravarthy Stats in IPL

Varun Chakravarthy was the star with the ball as he picked 4/15 in the last game. The RCB looked clueless against Varun’s googly as the mystery spinner dictated the terms. He will once again be crucial for the Kolkata side in restricting Gujarat’s in-form batters.
