The last time these two teams had met in Rajkot, KKR demolished the Gujarat Lions and scoring an absolutely dominating 10-wicket victory over them. Their opener Chris Lynn and captain Gautam Gambhir produced an unbeaten record partnership of 184 runs where Gambhir ended with a score of 76* and Lynn remained unbeaten on 93. Gujarat would surely be seeking a revenge this time around.
Players to watch out for:

On the flip side of the coin, Brendon McCullum's batting has been aesthetic while Ishan Kishan's display with the wood work in the previous game showed his abilities and how the youngster can take on any bowling attack.
