KKR target Gujarat
High on confidence following a hattrick of victories, two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders will look to continue their winning streak when they face struggling Gujarat Lions in a battle between the top and bottom-placed teams of the IPL tomorrow.
With two home and two away wins from five matches, in-form KKR are on a roll, quite the contrast to Gujarat's campaign, who finished the league stages on top last season but are yet to find their rhythm this year with just one victory out of five.
There has been no individual hero for KKR in their journey so far.
That has not only helped them overcome hurdles but played a key role in their smooth campaign.
But for the Suresh Raina-led Gujarat Lions, nothing is going right, be it their batting or bowling, especially the spin department which has let-down the team badly.
After spending a welcome three-day break, KKR will now be back to relish Eden's home comfort in two successive matches, including a marquee Sunday showdown against the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore.
