History is with Gujarat Lions who have never lost to Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League. Gujarat Lions, in their second IPL season, will be a eyeing a hattrick of wins against two time champions Kolkata Knight Riders. Both times the teams faced off in 2016, GL won chasing.
Gujarat Lions beat Kolkata Knight Riders by five wickets at the Eden Gardens last season and in the return leg game played in Kanpur, GL won by six wickets.
Suresh Raina led Gujarat Lions had topped the league stage last year but were knocked out in the playoffs to finish third. Kolkata Knight Riders finished in 4th position.
Both teams will miss a few key players. While the Lions will miss Indian superstar Ravindra Jadeja and the injured Dwayne Bravo, Kolkata will need two quality all-rounders to fill in for Andre Russell (banned for a doping offence) and Shakib Al Hasan (on duty for Bangladesh).
But with big hitters like Brendon McCullum (GL), Raina, Aaron Finch (GL), Robin Uthappa (KKR) and Yusuf Pathan (KKR) around, it could turn out to be a run feast.
Kolkata Knight Riders, who chose to field first.
Kolkata Knight Riders won by 10 wickets (with 31 balls remaining).
