Match 35 of the India Premier League will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Gujarat Titans (KKR vs GT) at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai. Kolkata Knight Riders have played seven matches in the series, and they are currently ranked seventh on the points table, while Gujarat Titans have played six matches in the series, and they will be looking to strengthen their hold on the top spot.
Gujarat Titans have managed to outperform strong opponents due to collective effort from all the players. Shubman Gill has been cold and hot at the top of the order, whereas players like David Miller, Abhinav Mathur, Vijay Shankar and Rahul Tewatia have won games for their side. Hardik Pandya has been excellent in all the departments and provides a much-needed edge to his side.
In the bowling department, Md. Shami, Rashid Khan and Lockie Ferguson are doing a terrific job by posing a stiff challenge to opponents. Titans look like a solid team on paper and have players who proved this fact with their superb performance on the ground.
On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders have a few issues to resolve as consistency amongst players is one of the major factors due to which the team has suffered a lot. The failure of Venkatesh Iyer and Sheldon Jackson is hurting the side most.
Pat Cummins was terrific in his first game, but since then, he has not displayed similar batting. Kolkata has an uphill task to win a game against in-form Gujarat Titans.
