The new iteration of the Indian Premier League 2022 is very exciting and spicy at this stage. 8 franchises are now separated by just 4 points and each win can push them 2-3 spots ahead in the points table. The next match in the fixture is GT vs KKR. Gujarat Titans have been the most successful franchise in the tournament so far and are at the peak of the table right now.

Time: 3.30 PM
Venue: DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai

KKR pulled out all the tricks from under their sleeves after Narine’s untimely run-out in the first ball. The middle got destroyed ridiculously as their top 6 batters got dismissed for single digits including 4 ducks. Their bowlers did not do much despite Umesh Yadav’s fireworks.
Gujarat Titans are at the top of the table for a reason. They outperformed themselves in their last match chasing down the target of 170 runs by bouncing back from the dead (48/4) in the match. David Miller and Rashid Khan destroyed the bowling side of Chennai Super Kings. Hardik Pandya is expected to come back to playing XI in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Certain changes in the batting line-up can be expected.

GT VS KKR Toss Prediction, Pitch Prediction, and Weather Prediction
GT vs KKR Toss Prediction
Gujarat Titans among the two teams will win the toss and will opt to field. In all of the tosses won so far, teams have chosen to chase down the total, and we expect the captains to bowl first in this match as well. Match results have favored teams chasing the target by a little margin.
GT vs KKR Pitch Prediction
The DY Patil pitch has been slightly dry, with very little grass on it, and the ball may have a slight grip on the surface. Batters will have a hard time scoring easily on this pitch unless they get used to it. On this pitch, we anticipate average scores of 160-180 runs.
GT vs KKR Weather Prediction
On the day of the match, the weather in Mumbai will be bright and sunny, with no risk of rain. We anticipate a full contest, with dew likely to appear late in the game.

Who will win the Match?
GT has a strong batting and bowling unit that is playing to its full ability and racking up wins. They have a number of players who have stepped up at critical times to assist their team win. KKR, on the other hand, has been suffering from the ball recently, and their team is largely reliant on Russell and Cummins in the top and lower orders, respectively.
Their middle line needs to produce more consistently and effectively. Gujarat Titans are expected to win this match due to their batting and bowling consistency.
