Struggling KKR stern face Gujarat Titans test

Navi Mumbai: Former champions Kolkata Knight Riders will be desperate to get their flag campaign back on track when they meet the leaders Gujarat Titans in the IPL here on Saturday.

After suffering three defeats in a row, the Shreyas Iyer-led outfit has dropped to seventh and the task gets tougher against the Titans, who were a revelation in their first season.

The Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans have fired every cylinder, with their agility and bowling prowess.

Pandya withdrew from their last game against Chennai Super Kings due to a groin injury, but it was business as usual for the Titans as stand-in skipper Rashid Khan led the team to a three-wicket victory over the four-time champions.

The biggest plus in their win against CSK was Rashid’s sensational form with the bat as he busted a 21-ball 40 to help his team chase the goal with a reserve of ball.

GT’s opening combination may not have given them the start they wanted and mostly the mid-range saved the Titans.
