In this post, we are going to discuss the IPL 2024 Match 63, GT vs KKR IPL Records & Stats at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, playing in the IPL 2024 Match 63. As India’s biggest mega cricket carnival IPL 2024 enters its business end, Gujarat Titans (GT) are set to host Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in what will be the last league match at Ahmedabad in the tournament.

KKR having already qualified for the playoffs are sitting pretty at the top of the points table and will want to retain form in their last two matches before the final stages roll around. KKR will also be bolstered by the win they secured against Mumbai Indians in their last match. In a rain-curtailed match, most of KKR’s batters made significant contributions mainly Venkatesh Iyer and Nitish Rana, who was returning from an injury. Ramandeep Singh once again made a blasting cameo that put KKR on the course to a par total. KKR’s bowlers, led by Varun Chakravarthy with contributions from Andre Russell and Harshit Rana, then put up a team effort to deny MI the 158 runs they needed in 16 overs.

Gujarat Titans bounced back from their double setback to RCB with centuries from both Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan against CSK. GT’s opening pair sent a whole host of records tumbling before CSK’s top order collapsed. Moeen Ali and Daryl Mitchell made fifties that feigned some hope, but ultimately CSK fell a fair way short despite a cameo from MS Dhoni.

This surface in the early part of the tournament had been defying the high-total trend but seems to have turned into a ground of regular 200-plus totals. Both teams boast strong lineups with the bat so a high total should not be a surprise.

The important match-ups for this match are Sunil Narine vs Rashid Khan, Phil Salt vs Umesh Yadav, Harshit Rana vs Sai Sudharsan, Shubman Gill vs Sunil Narine, Andre Russell vs Mohit Sharma.

Player Battles to Watch Out For

Andre Russell vs Rashid Khan:

In 22 balls, Andre Russell has scored just 24 runs against the leggie while being dismissed thrice at an average of 8 and a strike rate of 109.09. This matchup might dictate the course of the entire match.

Shreyas Iyer vs Mohit Sharma:

Mohit Sharma was instrumental in wrecking CSK in the last match, so he becomes very important in the matchups here. His battles with the KKR skipper aren’t extensive but have enough information. Against Mohit, Iyer has scored just 13 runs in 12 balls getting out once with an average of 13 and a strike rate of 108.33.

X-Factors for GT vs KKR

Gujarat Titans:

Captain Shubman Gill will be bolstered by his century and a possible return to form. He will again be instrumental in his team’s chances against his former team.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Sunil Narine is leading the run charts for KKR this year and also contributing with the ball. His very good form has been the major reason KKR have gotten as far as they have, and to conserve that momentum, KKR will need Narine in full tilt.
