The weekend kicks off with the mighty Kolkata Knight Riders taking on the struggling Gujarat Lions. Shruti has her prediction in place – read on or listen to her right here:
It seems like quite a task for the Lions to face such a formidable side, the Knight Riders. But I do believe Kolkata won’t have the best start with the bat – they should manage to rescue themselves in the middle and end overs. Bowling on the other hand has a disciplined start but it seems to lose way in the end.
Looking at Gujarat, they’ve had quite a tough time, but today they appear to have gathered themselves well.. well at least to a better standard than they have this season. Batting doesn’t start well, but it should progress very confidently once that phase is over. As for their bowling, it looks to start well, but then just loses way.
With both teams looking more impressive with the bat, it’s tarot advantage: the team batting second.
