Following its second win over Royal Challengers Bangalore, a confident Kolkata Knight Riders will be keen to repeat its complete domination over another opponent, Gujarat Titans when it hosts the defending champion in an afternoon engagement at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Saturday.
KKR batters’ fine showing, resulting in two 200-plus totals, at the Eden – which has witnessed at least one aggregate in excess of 200 – should motivate the Nitish Rana-led side. The memory of Rinku Singh hammering Yash Dayal to outsmart GT in Ahmedabad should also boost KKR.
Here is a look at the predicted XIs with the Impact Player rule also enabling teams to carry two teamsheets for the toss.
