KKR Playing 11 for Kolkata Knight Riders vs Gujarat Titans, Match 39 of IPL 2023; Top Picks, Fantasy Cricket Tips for KKR vs GT Dream11 Team Prediction
Updated on: Apr 28, 2023 7:46 pm IST
The Kolkata Knight Riders will be looking to build on their recent win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore as they face Gujarat Titans for the second time this season at the Eden Gardens.
After a famous win against the Titans earlier this month, where Rinku Singh smashed 5 sixes in a row to win the game for the side, the KKR faced a four-match losing streak, which was finally ended with their win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The inclusion of Jason Roy has strengthened the top order, and he has already scored two half-centuries in three innings.
KKR’s lower order has been struggling with the performances of Andre Russell and Sunil Narine, who have not lived up to their full potential. Russell, in particular, has not had enough time in the middle to make a significant impact.
In terms of bowling, the spinners have been the backbone of the team’s performance. Young Suyash Sharma has been impressive.
On the other hand, the seamers have struggled for KKR, with Shardul Thakur and Umesh Yadav being expensive.
KKR will be hoping to address the issue and come up with a near perfect performance against defending champions.
