Indian T20 League 2022: Kolkata vs Gujarat Fantasy Cricket Match-Ups

Kolkata will be desperate to end a three-game winless run when they meet second-placed Gujarat in match 35 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. The two-time winners, who had won three of their four opening matches, suffered defeats at the hands of Delhi, Hyderabad, and Rajasthan in their last three fixtures. They are seventh in the standings, and two points will lift them to playoff places.

After back-to-back wins, Gujarat became the first franchise to pick up five wins this season. The Hardik Pandya-led side crushed Rajasthan by 37 runs and clinched a last-over thriller against Chennai in Pune. The Ahmedabad-based franchise lost just one match so far in the 15th edition.

Here are some of the most exciting First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Kolkata-Gujarat fixture.

A Russell vs H Pandya

In a Match-Up of all-rounders, Andre Russell gears up against Hardik Pandya at DY Patil Stadium. Russell is second in Kolkata's run-scorers chart - 179 runs - and also bagged six wickets. Meanwhile, Hardik, forced to miss the match against Chennai owing to a groin injury, is thriving at Gujarat. He amassed 228 runs and picked up a wicket in each of his last four games.

Verdict: H Pandya could pick up more fantasy points than A Russell.

Did You Know? H Pandya has a batting average of 59.80 against Kolkata 

S Gill vs  S IYER

Shubman Gill will be keen to end his lean patch as he scored just 20 runs since his spectacular knock of 96 against Punjab. Shreyas Iyer, on the other hand, brought up his second fifty - 85 off 51 balls - this season in the defeat against Rajasthan. The Kolkata captain has racked up 236 runs at a strike rate of 148.42. 

Verdict: S Iyer is likely to win the Match-Up against S Gill

A Finch vs  S Narine

Aaron Finch played a stellar knock against Rajasthan on Monday. The Aussie white-ball captain struck a 28-ball 58 - nine fours and two sixes. All-rounder Sunil Narine picked up pace as the West Indian grabbed four wickets in his last three matches at an economy rate of 5.41. He is one wicket away from 150 wickets in the Indian T20 League. 

Verdict: S Narine to finish above A Finch in the fantasy points chart.

U YADAV vs  M Shami

Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami haven't been prolific with the ball in the last few games. The Kolkata pacer, who took 2/16 against Bangalore at DY Patil Stadium this season, registered more batting points than bowling points against Rajasthan. Meanwhile, Shami has grabbed a wicket each in Gujarat's previous two outings. 

Verdict: U Yadav is expected to outscore M Shami in this Match-Up


Lockie Ferguson will head to DY Patil Stadium with confidence after his three-wicket haul against Rajasthan in Gujarat's last outing at the venue. On the other hand, Rashid Khan scored a match-winning 40 in the newly-formed franchise's three-wicket win over Chennai.  However, the Afghanistan spin king went wicketless in Gujarat's last two outings.

Verdict: L Ferguson has the upper hand over R Khan
