Previous prediction regarding SRH and Pune was 100% correct and will predict gujarat vs kolkata in a similar manner.
Gujrat vs Kolkata third match would not be very easy to predict though Dwayne Bravo,Ravindra jadega from gujarat lions and Umesh Yadav a very economical bowler from Kolkata knight riders are not playing.
Team strategies of Kolkata was already prepared and its a time of its execution as their team joined a week ago and nothing unusaual happened so its a plus point for KKR.
As Jadega and Bravo was not playing, this would definitely make the moral of kolkata high, another point to Kolkata.
Absence of Umesh Yadav would not affect kolkata as they have options.
Previous two win of Gujarat over Kolkata will keep team's confidence high as they would be thinking for third.
Batting line-up of gujarat starting from Brendomm McCullum great batsmen and capable of scoring good runs,Json Roy a massive hitter from t20 world will definitly give a positive blow to the team,Aaron Finch an Australian captain and ranked 1 player in T20 and in form,Suresh Raina captain of the team definitely wanted to make a way to Indian Team through ipl so he would be performing and Dinesh kartik an experienced player and capable of moulding situation accordingly.Overall a good line-up and will definitely demand more from kolkata bowlers.
Bowling of gujarat starts from an all-rounder James Faulkner in itself capable of hitting and bowling himself and will perform in ipl 2017 to show what he is capable of,Shadab Jakati a good spinner,Dhawal Kulkarni a pacer and Praveen Kumar would make sure that kolkata would fall down as early as possible.
Talking about Kolkata,Batting line-up starts from Gautam gambhir best opner in the world,Robin Uthappa consistent in performance and capable of scoring big runs and wanted to make a way to Team India so he will definitely perform,Manish pandey a t20 animal,Chris Lynn with his bat and field, will be explosive,Yusuf pathan a massive hitter and wanted a chance to Team India so will be dangerous and Chris Woakes in place of Andre Russell an all-rounder, everyone wanted from him to perform and take the charge.
bowling side of Kolkata forms an array from Sunil Narine,Kuldeep yadav,Trent boult and Ankit Rajpoot, they definitely capable to stop any batsmen from hitting big runs.
Ground Stats, venue for the match is Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium is favourable for Jadega but he is not in team, so won't affect much.
Only one T20 was played at this ground which was won by team bowling first.two ODI's and both won by team batting first.
Ground is Batsmen friendly,so team with maximum runs would win here.
In an all its hard to predict who will win but had to take one stand so Kolkata is the one who would be the most probable winner.Best of luck for Lions.
