Pitch Conditions

The pitch at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium is favourable for batting. This pitch is used to score quality runs. The outfield is quick, but the boundary is a little bit large. This pitch offers fast bowlers a lot of help. On this pitch, the spinners have very little help. This field has two different kinds of pitches: red and black. The spinners will also receive assistance if the game is played on a red pitch. On this pitch, good runs will therefore be observed. 

GT vs KKR Head-to-Head Record 

In their three IPL meetings, the Gujarat Titans and Kolkata Knight Riders have split their victories, with Gujarat winning two and Kolkata winning one. Given that this is the first IPL 2024 meeting between GT and KKR.  The team that wins the toss should bat first.
