IPL 2024 GT vs KKR: Match preview, head-to-head and streaming details

Having played each other three times, GT have won two while KKR have prevailed on one occasion.

In the 63rd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024Gujarat Titans (GT) will play Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad tonight, i.e., May 13, at 7:30 PM IST.

Currently sitting in eighth place in the standings with 10 points, the home team still has a good chance of making the playoffs with two games remaining. The side has dropped three of its previous five games, but their most recent victory over CSK will undoubtedly give them some confidence going into tonight’s match against the table toppers. With Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan opening, it gives GT a stable start but the main concern for the side is its middle-order batters. For GT to succeed, the likes of Rahul Tewatia, David Miller, and Matthew Wade need to fire. Shahrukh Khan has showcased decent form, while with the ball, Rashid Khan hasn’t been at his best as well. Mohit Sharma has been in excellent form and will once again try to stretch his touch.

On the contrary, KKR have already qualified for the playoffs with 18 points, and a win today will strengthen their position at the top. The unit will also seek to comprehend the conditions well, as the team will play Qualifier 1 here and would want to prevail in it as well. The Knights produced a spectacular performance the previous time they played at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Rinku Singh’s stunning five sixes in the final over to propel KKR to victory will live in fans’ hearts for a long time. As the evening’s headliner, Rinku Singh, comes out to bat on the same wicket, he will undoubtedly try to regain some of his lost touch. KKR will look to maintain their dominant performance, with Sunil Narine and Phil Salt ripping apart bowlers early on and Ramandeep Singh and Andre Russell ending strong. Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, and Rinku Singh will be seeking to bat extensively with an impressive strike rate, while with the ball, Mitchell Starc and Harshit Rana have performed well. The spin twins Varun Chakaravarthy and Narine will continue their wizardry while Andre will be lethal once more in the death overs.

Head-to-Head:

Having played each other three times, GT have won two while KKR have prevailed on one occasion. Last time, when the two teams played each other, GT won the contest by seven wickets.
