Kolkata Knight Riders Preview:
Kolkata Knight Riders: Strengths
Pandey and Gambhir front-runners for Orange Cap! Kolkata’s two top order batsmen – skipper Gautam Gambhir and youngster Manish Pandey are among the leading run scorers of IPL 2017. Gambhir showed tremendous temperament against the Lions and Kings in KKR’s first two successful chases while Pandey won them a thriller against Delhi Daredevils. Along with Pathan, the young KKR batsman shared a match-winning partnership and when the chips were down; Manish took on the challenge against Amit Mishra and got KKR over the finishing line in the final over.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Weakness
Expensive bowling! The seam bowlers of KKR have proven to be a tad expensive in most of the matches KKR has played this season. Sunil Narine has been economical but hasn’t been amongst the wickets like he has done in the previous seasons for the franchise. Nathan Coulter Nile bowled a magnificent spell in the last game and he’ll prove to be a pivotal member of that bowling attack for rest of the season.
Poor fielding! Another weakness that can be highlighted is KKR’s poor fielding. They have dropped sitters in the past few games and most of the fielders including their skipper need to work on that aspect.
Kolkata Knight Riders (Probable XI) – Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan, Suryakumar Yadav, Chris Woakes, Nathan Coulter Nile, Sunil Narine, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav.
Gujarat Lions Preview:
Solid top order! The Lions have one of the most explosive batting line-ups in IPL 2017. With the likes of Dwayne Smith, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik and Aaron Finch amongst the top 5 batters, they can take down any bowling attack on a given day.
Also, young Ishan Kishan showed us what he is capable of doing against Royal Challengers Bangalore the other day. He’s another class player in Gujarat’s batting line-up.
Gujarat Lions: Weakness
Lack of quality bowlers! Gujarat’s bowling has been disappointing right from the opening contest of IPL 2017. KKR openers Lynn and Gambhir thrashed their bowlers all over the park and achieved a 10-wicket win against them in Gujarat’s backyard. Andrew Tye showed promise in his first match of the season with a 5-wicket haul and a hat-trick but even AJ has cooled down since that game. Being the only wicket-taking bowler in Gujarat, opposition batsmen have looked to play him out and attack the remaining bowlers in the team. They are surely missing the services of Dwayne Bravo badly and need him to play for them before it gets too late.
Gujarat Lions (Probable XI) – Dwayne Smith, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina, Aaron Finch, Dinesh Karthik, Ishan Kishan, Andrew Tye, Ravindra Jadeja, Praveen Kumar, Basil Thampi, Shadab Jakati.
