Kolkata Knight Riders will lock horns with the Gujarat Titans in the 39th match of the Indian Premier League 2023. The Knight Riders started the season with a loss against Punjab Kings where dls method played a part. They bounced back by steamrolling RCB and GT in their next assignment. Right after, they were swept away by the opponents in three consecutive matches. KKR management has been changing their openers constantly which has been a major problem. Venkatesh Iyer has blown hot and cold through the season, he scored a century and followed it up a couple of failures. Jason Roy was brilliant in the last game and was the reason behind their victory against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The defending champions, Gujarat Titans have been the most consistent side this year as well. They have played seven matches in the tournament and managed to win five so far. Currently, they are at number two in the points table and will be looking to maintain their position in the top half of the table with a win in this match. They are coming into this game on the back of a victory against the Mumbai Indians, they posted a huge total of 207 runs on the board while batting first and then defended it exceedingly well. The last time these two sides met, we saw Rinku Singh hit 5 sixes in a row to take KKR to an unlikely victory, will we see something same this time as well?

The pitch at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata has traditionally been well-balanced, offering something for both the batters and the bowlers. The ball might do a little bit for the fast bowlers in the initial stages of the match as well, but it will get easier to bat as the match progresses. The batters need to get their eye in before going for the aggressive shots, they can take advantage of the short boundaries at this venue. The captain winning the toss would be inclined to bowl first at this venue and chase the score down in the second innings with some dew expected.
