Gujarat Titans have started this season just where they finished the last winning their first two comfortably. They look happy to restrict the teams and then chase anything that’s thrown at them. I am backing the Gujarat Titans to continue their winning momentum.

  • Gujarat Titans have won 6 of their last 7 matches (IPL)
  • Kolkata Knight Riders have lost 8 of their last 12 matches (IPL)
  • Kolkata Knight Riders have lost against Gujarat Titans last season (IPL)
  • Rashid Khan has taken at least 2 wickets in 2 of his last 3 matches against Kolkata Knight Riders (IPL)

Head to Head


Being a new franchise that started only last year, there was just a single game played between Gujarat Titans and Kolkata Knight Riders. Last year at the DY Patil Stadium, Gujarat won by eight runs.

Hardik Pandya’s 67 off 49 balls led the Titans to 156/9 which they were able to defend as Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami and Yash Dayal all chipped in with two wickets each.

Gujarat Titans Form


Gujarat Titans started their IPL 2023 campaign in the best way possible, winning by five wickets against Chennai and by six wickets against Delhi.

Sai Sudharsan has stepped up so far with the left-hander leading their batting charts with 84 runs. Shubman Gill is the next with 77 runs including a fifty.

Rashid Khan is once again their enforcer in bowling with five wickets so far, the same as Mohammed Shami. Alzarri Joseph is also stepping up with four, although their fourth and fifth bowler quota remains a concern.

Gujarat Titans Team News


Dasun Shanaka has been signed as an injury replacement for Kane Williamson but the Sri Lankan captain is yet to join the Titans. Josh Little didn’t lift his game yet and could be the one under question.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


Kolkata Knight Riders had an up and down start to their season starting with a seven-run DLS loss to Punjab before thumping Bangalore for an 81-run win.

Their new addition Rahmanullah Gurbaz has been the leading light with the bat scoring 79 runs so far. Surprise factor Shardul Thakur scored an enterprising 68 in the previous match, lifting him to second in the batting charts.

Varun Chakaravarthy has five wickets so far with his ER of 5.34 making him a tough one to pick once again. Their pace bowlers are struggling a bit with both Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee unable to show any penetration.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News


Mandeep Singh aggregated just two runs this season which opens the door for N Jagadeesan. Lockie Ferguson could also be coming into the side against his former team, as he recovers from an injury.
