Gujarat Titans

The batting jumps in the ranks with the return of David Miller. While the bowling led by Mohammad Shami and Rashid Khan has been consistently picking wickets while giving away few runs.

Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Sai Sudharsan, Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Joshua Little, Yash Dayal, Alzarri Joseph

Kolkata Knight Riders

On the other hand, the Kolkata Knight Riders seem to be a maverick team which, on its day, can take down any opposition. The KKR batters have struggled especially veteran Mandeep Singh and captain Nitish Rana. Similarly, their biggest star Andre Russell is yet to fire, which could be a concern for the two-time champs.
