There will be bright sunny conditions available throughout the game with temperatures in the high 30s while the humidity will be in the range of 15 to 20 percent. It will be an amazing sight to see a full house crowd in Ahmedabad today supporting their home team even though it will be quite hot weather to cope with.
It’s a nice batting-friendly wicket available at this venue where the average first-innings score is around about 175 runs but there is something available here for the spinners to utilize in the middle overs. Quality spinners like Rashid Khan will be able to trouble batters here with his variety and subtle change in pace.
GT vs KKR Match 13 Probable Playing XIs
If Titans continue their chasing ritual then we expect Josh Little to be replaced by Sudharsan or Vijay Shankar to further strengthen their batting lineup and give them the depth required to chase big totals at this iconic stadium.
If KKR bats first then they will likely replace Mandeep Singh with a bowler like Suyash Sharma to have more bowling options while defending the total. The vice-versa can happen in case they bowl first and then Suyash would be replaced by N Jagadeesan who is currently warming up the bench.

GT vs KKR Match 13 Dream11 Prediction
For GT vs KKR Match 13 Dream11 fantasy team for Grand League we have decided to go heavy on young prospects rather than more experienced cricketers as we believe the talent these young cricketers like Gurbaz, Gill, Rana, and Varun possess they can win the game on their own. We have added Russell, Rashid, & Narine into the mix who got a ton of experience playing franchise cricket and are also considered direct match winners.
Have a look at our GT vs KKR Match 13 Dream11 Team for Grand Leagues.
Wicket-Keeper – R Gurbaz
Batsmen – N Rana, S Gill ©, S Sudharsan
All-rounders – S Narine, A Russell (vc), H Pandya
Bowlers – U Yadav, M Shami, Rashid Khan, Varun Chakravarthy
Shubman Gill is our go-to option for captaincy in the GT vs KKR Dream11 team as he is someone who can seriously dent the opponent team right at the top with his classy batting and skillful slogging whenever needed. Russell is our vice-captain who has won so many games against KKR in the last and he is someone who absolutely loves the big stage there could be no bigger stage than Narendra Modi Stadium to outclass the home team in front of a packed crowd.
GT vs KKR Head-to-Head Stats
Since Gujarat Titans were the new addition to the IPL just last year so there isn’t much history available between these two franchises but the last time they played against each other it was the Titans who successfully defended the total. Rashid Khan, Yash Dayal & Mohammed Shami were the pick of the bowlers in that game and they all will be playing this match as well.

GT vs KKR Match 13 Prediction
Cricket analysts and bookmakers have predicted that it is the Gujarat Titans who are going to win this game as GT got much better overseas player lineup than KKR. GT got a winning probability of around 54% in their favor. For KKR to win, 1st thing we suggest is to force GT to set up a score as they look very formidable while chasing targets and Varun Chakravarthy, Sunil Narine, and Suyash Sharma have to make sure they do not score more than 160 to 170 runs. The good thing for KKR is they have roped in Jason Roy very recently who can strengthen their batting upfront and can help them get a good start in the powerplay overs.
