KKR vs GT: Kolkata Knight Riders will square off against Gujarat Titans in the 35th match of IPL 2022 on Saturday at Dr DY Patil Stadium.
Kolkata had a fine start to their tournament campaign as they had won three out of their first four matches. However, the team has witnessed a tragic decline in its performance and they are currently on a three-match losing streak. With 6 points in their account, KKR is placed at the seventh spot on the points table. They were outplayed by Rajasthan Royals in their previous fixture by seven runs as they failed to chase the target of 218 runs.
Gujarat Titans, on the other hand, have emerged as one of the strongest teams in the tournament, winning 5 out of 6 matches. They are currently sitting at the top of the points table. The Titans defeated defending champions Chennai Super Kings in the previous match thanks to stand-in captain Rashid Khan and David Miller’s outstanding batting efforts. They’ll be looking to continue their winning momentum in the tournament.
