Indian T20 League 2024

GUJ vs KOL, 63rd Match

 

Preview

Gujarat will host table toppers Kolkata at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Monday, May 13.

The one-time champions haven’t been in their best form this season and are currently sitting in the far bottom of the points table in the 8th position. Despite all these odds, Sai Sudharsan’s consistent performance has been the reason for happiness to all the Gujarat fans. The 22-year-old amassed 289 runs in his previous five innings. He smashed 103 runs in Gujarat’s match against the five-time champions Chennai. Shubman Gill also struck a century alongside him in the winning act. The young dynamic skipper accumulated 104 runs off 55 deliveries to form a 200-plus runs stand with Sudharsan, Mohit Sharma also came back to his sublime form picking up three wickets and giving away just 31 runs. 

Kolkata are the first team to Qualify for the playoffs in the Indian T20 League 2024. The spin duo of Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine have been consistent with their wicket-taking trials. Chakravarthy has been in great touch as he has collected 10 scalps in his last five outings for Kolkata, Among pacers, Harshit Rana has been the leader of the pack with 9 to his name in the last five matches.

Pitch and Weather Report

The surface at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad is excellent to bat on and we can expect a high-scoring match between the sides. The team batting first will be peeking on getting close to 200 runs on the scoreboard to put the opponent under pressure in the second innings of the match. The pitch does have some grass on it which will help the fast bowlers in the powerplays. 

The weather is predicted to remain cloudy with the highest and lowest temperatures ranging between 29-39 degrees Celsius.

Match Prediction

Gujarat have to produce a similar opening performance as they did against the reigning champions Chennai to make the contest tougher for the Shreyas Iyer-led side. Nevertheless, Kolkata has seemed to be a force to reckon with in this Indian T20 League 2024. Hence, we believe the Purple Army will defy all odds to fetch their fifth consecutive victory and remain at the top of the table.
