KKR vs GT Match Prediction
KKR avoided a fifth straight loss by defeating RCB in their previous match, but they still appear to be a weak team on paper. Going by how both teams have performed so far in the tournament, we predict GT to win this game. However, Kolkata’s spin trio – Varun Chakravarthy, Sunil Narine and Suyash Sharma have bowled brilliantly on the Eden surface, and that is something Gujarat will be weary of
