IPL play-off race is spicing up with 8 teams being separated by just 4 points and each win pushes the team 2-3 spots ahead in the points table. Gujarat Titans have been most successful team in the tournament so far and are at the top of the points table currently. Kolkata Knight Riders after 3 wins in their first 4 matches have succumbed to 3 losses on a trot and they need to arrest the slide before it affects their qualification chances in a big time. Gujarat Titans will be high on confidence after a superb win in their last game and will look to continue their rich form in this match too.
KKR fired on all cylinders after Narine`s untimely first ball run-out as Aaron Finch (58 runs) and Shreyas Iyer (85 runs) took on the opposition with their 108 run partnership off 47 balls. The middle collapsed ridiculously as 6 batters in top-6 were dismissed for single digits including 4 ducks. Despite Umesh Yadav`s pyrotechnics late they were bowled out for 210 runs falling short by 7 runs.
Their bowlers gave away the highest score of the season with 217 runs. Sunil Narine was superb with figures of 4-0-21-1 in a high scoring encounter. Andre Russell and Shivam mavi chipped in with a wicket each. Varun Chakravarty and Pat Cummins are struggling to control the run flow effectively this season. .

David Miller played a blinder scoring 94 runs off 51 balls while Rashid Khan scored a vital 40 runs off 21 balls in the final overs. Hardik Pandya is expected to return to playing XI in this match and their batting line-up might have some changes.

Mumbai will have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with just no chances of precipitation. We expect a full match with dew making it`s mark in the late stages of the match.
DY Patil pitch has been slightly dry with very little grass on it and ball might hold onto the surface slightly. Batters will struggle score freely until they are settled on this pitch. We expect the average scores to be around 160-180 runs on this pitch.
Teams have opted to chase down the total in all the tosses won so far and we expect the captains to bowl first in this match too. Match results too have been slightly in the favor of teams chasing the target.
GT have a good batting and bowling units that is performing to their potential and piling up victories with ease. They have different players standing up at crucial moments to help their team win. KKR on the other hand has been struggling with the ball recently and their team relies heavily on the top order and lower order duo of Russell and Cummins. Their middle order needs to contribute more effectively and continuously. We expect Gujarat Titans to win this match owing to their consistency in batting & bowling.
