IPL 2017 live score, KKR vs GL: Gujarat Lions aim to continue dominance over Kolkata Knight Riders at Rajkot

New Delhi:

Visitors Kolkata Knight Riders began the run chase in brutal fashion with skipper Gautam Gambhir and partner Chriss Lynn scoring freely with some eye-catching hits. Host Gujarat Lions were looking happy as they set a daunting target of 184 runs for the mighty KKR. But it seems that the rivals have made a mockery of GL bowling attack.

However,  the KKR need to tread cautiously as the wicket might behave strangely in the later stages of the match.

Earlier, KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir decided to bowl first after winning the toss. The hosts, however batted cleverly to set a big target 

IPL Live Score: Gujarat Lions (GL) vs Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)

Gujarat Lions were the table-toppers at the end of the league stage in the last IPL, but finished third after defeats in the two qualifiers against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad. 

But this time around, the Suresh Raina-led side would look to go one step up in only their second season of the IPL. 

Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, are one of those teams which cricket fans always root for -- be it for Sourav Ganguly or for its owner Shah Rukh Khan. 

For the Knight Riders, revenge would be high on their mind when they take the field against the Lions. The Kolkata outfit boost of the seasoned opening pair of captain Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa, who lay a solid foundation.
