Coming at the back of a hat-trick of victories, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) would look to continue their winning streak when they face struggling Gujarat Lions (GL) at the Eden Gardens on Friday, in a battle between the top and bottom-placed teams of the ongoing Indian Premier League.
With two home and two away wins from five matches, the in-form KKR are comfortably placed in the top half of the table as opposed to their opponents Gujarat who finished the league stages on top last season but are yet to get their act together this season, winning only a single game of the five they have played so far.
