Gujarat Lions owned by Intex Technologies and Kolkata Knight Riders, given a backing by the superstar Shahrukh Khan are going to give it up all in the third match of IPL 2017 season. After the first two major clashes, this one seems like an interesting match as it has the newer of the teams against the once-champions having a well-formed unit.
Gujarat Lions had a dream run last year in IPL 2016 when the team was on the top of the table with the all-round performances. It won the highest 9 games out of 14. Later, during the elimination game, Gujarat Lions lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad, who went on to win the title. KKR too was in the qualifiers, so the two teams are clashing this time.

Our Prediction – Who will win Gujarat vs Kolkata IPL match
Gujarat Lions will be the winner, according to our prediction. The odds are with them and Kolkata even having a balanced team, will have to fight the likes of Bravo, Jadeja, Karthik, Faulkner, Smith, and Raina. The perfect team of Gambhir, Darren Bravo, Pathan, Narine, and Shakib will still find it tough to play it out and win against Gujarat, but hey, that is our prediction and it could go wrong.
