IPL 2022: Predicted XIs For KKR vs GT

IPL 2022: Table-toppers Gujarat Titans will take on the inconsistent Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday afternoon at the DY Patil Stadium.

The Titans have emerged as an early title contender having won 5 of their 6 matches so far. They, in fact, have found a match-winner in every game; in their last match, versus Chennai Super Kings, it was David Miller who stepped up in the IPL after a long time.

Shreyas Iyer’s team, on the other hand, are on a three-match losing streak; before that, they had won three of their first four matches this season and would now want to get back to winning ways. KKR are coming off a close 7-run loss to Rajasthan.

Venue: DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai

The pitch at this venue has assisted bowlers, especially those who dig hard in the surface With this being a day match, spinners will come into play in the absence of dew.

Gujarat Titans:

Pandya missed the GT’s last game due to an injury and if he’s fit, he is likely to replace Vijay Shankar who has struggled horribly this season. Abhinav Manohar, in that case, could get a promotion to number 3.

GT predicted XI: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar/Hardik Pandya (C), David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Lockie Ferguson, Yash Dayal, Mohammed Shami

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Pat Cummins has had a poor time with the ball in hand and might be replaced by Tim Southee. KKR may also ponder replacing Cummins with Sam Billings or Chamika Karunaratne or Mohammad Nabi, since it’s a day match.

KKR predicted XI: Venkatesh Iyer, Aaron Finch, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins/ Tim Southee/Mohammad Nabi, Shivam Mavi, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy
