Recent Match Report - Titans vs KKR 35th Match 2022

Gujarat Titans 156 for 9 (Hardik 67, Russell 4-5, Southee 3-24) beat Kolkata Knight Riders 148 for 8 (Russell 48, Rinku 35, Shami 2-20, Rashid 2-22, Dayal 2-42) by eight runs

For 34 games, no captain dared. But on Saturday afternoon, Hardik Pandya opted to bat first under sunny skies against Kolkata Knight Riders, and though it was rocky for large parts in a seesaw affair, Gujarat Titans got the two points they needed and got back their spot at the summit of the IPL 2022 points table.

After putting up 156, which seemed around 20 too few at the halfway stage, Titans needed early Knight Riders wickets. Mohammed Shami, Yash Dayal and Lockie Ferguson picked off four in 6.1 overs, and that ensured Titans got home to an eight-run win despite a late 25-ball 48 from Andre Russell.
