IPL 2023 Match 39 Kolkata Knight Riders vs Gujarat Titans Today’s Match Prediction

Nitish Rana’s Kolkata Knight Riders will face Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans in Match 38 of Indian Premier League 2023 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Saturday, 29 April 2023. After losing four matches in a row, Kolkata Knight Riders finally managed to find a victory. They defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the previous game by 21 runs away from home.

They need plenty more of such performances to lift themselves up from the bottom half of the points table. Gujarat Titans beat Mumbai Indians in the previous match by a huge margin of 55 runs. With that, they have won five matches out of seven. Hardik Pandya’s team will move up to the top of the table if they win this game. That would certainly be the objective of the defending champions.
