FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Gujarat Lions, IPL 2016, Match 38 at Kolkata

KKR, who are recently coming off a close win over Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by seven runs, would be riding high on confidence, as they have had a decent season so far, winning almost most of the games, and managing to lose just three, as they aim to keep continuing their winning momentum forward. As for GL, they have had a dreadful performance in the previous tie against SRH, as they couldn’t perform up to the mark, both with the bat and the ball. Going by the performance in the previous tie, there are changes to happen most likely for either side.

With the game being held at Eden Gardens, the track is likely to stay on the slower side, and the teams would definitely like to have a strong bowling unit, especially the spin department. With KKR, having tons of spinners in their side, are likely to dominate this game. However, GL too have good some real good spinners in their side, and could turn the tide against KKR in no time, as so could their batting unit.
