The upcoming IPL 2024 clash on May 13th will see Gujarat Titans (GT) taking on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Gujarat Titans have secured victories in five out of their twelve matches this season, while Kolkata Knight Riders have dominated with nine wins in twelve games.

In their recent win against Chennai Super Kings, Titans displayed a formidable performance with Sai Sudharsan and Shubman Gill scoring 103 and 104 runs respectively. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders clinched an 18-run victory against Mumbai Indians, with Venkatesh Iyer contributing 42 runs in their last outing. Historically, Titans have won two out of three encounters against Knight Riders in this format.

Considering the pitch conditions, the captain winning the toss might opt to bowl first. However, Titans have shown inconsistency on their home ground this season. With the pitch expected to favour the batsmen, a high-scoring game is anticipated, unless the world-class spinners from Titans or Knight Riders dictate otherwise.

David Miller’s performance will be crucial for the hosts, especially in the middle and death overs, where he will face the challenge of Sunil Narine and Andre Russell from Kolkata Knight Riders. Narine has bowled 51 runs in 37 balls against Miller without dismissing him, while Russell has conceded 24 runs off 11 balls without dismissing him either.

Probable XI: Shubman Gill (c), Sai Sudharsan, Shahrukh Khan, David Miller, Matthew Wade (wk), Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma, Kartik Tyagi.

Shubman Gill has a good record in Ahmedabad, except against Sunil Narine, against whom he has scored 13 runs in 12 balls and has been dismissed twice. Given Gill’s form, the West Indian spinner might be brought in early to challenge him. Gill, fresh from a century in 50 balls, poses a significant threat to KKR’s plans.

Probable XI: Philip Salt (wk), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rinku Singh, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Ramandeep Singh , Mitchell Starc, Harshit Rana, Varun Chakaravarthy
