The Kolkata Knight Riders are currently taking on the Gujarat Titans at Dr DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. While they lost the toss and had to field first under the sun, they did a reasonably good job having restricted Gujarat to 156/9 despite a half-century from their captain Hardik Pandya.
Their star spinner Sunil Narine went wicketless in the match but scalps from Tim Southee and Andre Russell were enough to make sure that Gujarat do not bat out the opposition in the first innings. Prior to the game, Narine's lookalike was also spotted outside the stadium.
The cricket fan was also donning KKR colours and looked very similar to the West Indian cricketer. The image was shared by the Shreyas Iyer-led franchise on social media.
"Spot the difference! ? #KKRHaiTaiyaar #KKRvGT #IPL2022 #ShordaarFans," the post was captioned.

KKR haven't had a great start to the season so far and have lost 4 matches out of their 7 in IPL 2022. Having said that, they have a great opportunity to win the contest against table-toppers Gujarat Titans after their bowlers have done a great job of restricting the newcomers.
Southee scalped 3 wickets for 24 runs in his 4 overs and Russell, trusted by the captain to bowl the final over, got 4 wickets in the last over, giving away just 4 runs. Umesh Yadav and Shivam Mavi picked up a wicket each.
