GL vs KKR Prediction:
Both teams look strong on paper and it’s not easy to predict a winner this early in the season. GL holds the edge in Batting with Finch, McCullum, Raina, Smith may prove too enough for KKR bowlers. However KRR have Sunil Narine in bowl alongside pace battery Trent boult alongside Woakes. Gujarat have the home advantage and we think they will nick this one. So, we are going for a narrow but GL win.
