IPL 10: Gujarat vs Kolkata, match PREVIEW
Gujarat vs Kolkata, match PREVIEW. Kolkata have a poor record against the Suresh Raina led Gujarat and so they will look to improve the record as they kick start their IPL campaign in the third match of IPL season 10. Kolkata would want to start with a win when the two sides meet at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. In 2016, Kolkata lost both their matches to Suresh Raina led Gujarat.
However, Kolkata have been one of the most consistent teams in the history of IPL. Gujarat topped the points table last year only to return second best in both the qualifiers against Bangalore and champions Hyderabad. Kolkata on the other hand, finished fourth in the league stage, losing to Hyderabad in the eliminator. Gujarat have a top-heavy look to their batting lineup with the likes of Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Smith, Aaron Finch, Suresh Raina, and Dinesh Karthik. Kolkata's strength this time lies in the balance of the team. they have Chris Woakes, Trent Boult, Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, Manish Pandey and vice-captain Suryakumar, the men in purple are expected to do well.
