Match Preview – KKR vs GL Players in the Spotlight
Both the teams can’t bear the loss of defeat in this team because with the passage of every single match the importance of coming matches will also be increased. Kolkata Knight Riders were flying on the top of IPL rating table in season 9.
Openers have been providing a good platform for the upcoming players, Gautam and Uthapa were the first and second leading scorers respectively in previous season. Manish Pandey was not the part of his team due to his illness but hope so he will join the team to strengthen his team batting.
Yousuf Pathan is also famous for his quick finishing quality and has always been dominant and aggressive way of batting. Andre Russell obviously played some outstanding innings but he was out of the team due to injury and there is a chance that he will miss this crucial game.
Newly IPL emerging team Gujarat Lions will try their best to get bounce back in the tournament. Raina is the captain of this team who aims to score a big total with the help of Dwayne Smith, McCullum and Finch. With the addition of this they have also strong bowling attack like Steyn, Jadeja and Bravo who can destroy the bating line of Kolkata Knight Riders.
It’s not often that the first two overs are maidens in T20 format but it had happened in the presence of Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum which means Kolkata has strong and clicking bowling attack to create much disturbance for them.
