Kolkata Knight Riders are occupying the seventh place in the points table with just three wins to their name from eight league matches. The team started well in the tournament by winning two of their first games. However, they stumbled in the middle and ended up losing the next four consecutive matches.

The skipper Virat Kohli made good efforts as he added 54 runs to the scoreboard. However, he did not get the support of other batters and the team fell short of 21 runs. Playing on Saturday, KKR will be aiming to continue the momentum.
As far as Gujarat Titans are concerned, they are sitting in third place in the points table with five wins and two losses. The team has a total of ten points to its name.
