Highlights of the GT vs. KKR IPL 2024 match: Following a washout in Ahmedabad, the Gujarat Titans were declared out of the competition, and Kolkata Knight Riders secured their place in the opening qualifier.
As part of the Titans’ breast cancer awareness campaign, the two captains shared ribbons in a heartfelt moment before shaking hands to signal the end of the game.
The Titans’ home leg came to an end with fireworks lighting up the sky, and the players thanked the fans by doing a lap around the field.
Many fans stayed in spite of the weather, hoping for some action.

For the Gujarat Titans, the season has been disappointing. They struggled to find form this season even though they had won the title in their debut and placed second in the second.
Restarting the contest is delayed by heavy rain. After the rain ceases, the ground requires 40–45 minutes to prepare. Cutoff time for a 5-over game is 10:56 PM. Fans lose hope as the stands fill up.
The event’s preparations are hampered by the heavy rain tonight. With the floodlights still off, a large crowd waits under cover. Repairs were delayed because of earlier drizzle that snagged ornamental flags on floodlights. Some of the stadium’s functional floodlights have managed to partially illuminate an area despite these obstructions.

Shubman Gill’s recent century was essential in helping him regain his form following his exclusion from the T20 World Cup selection. At the Narendra Modi Stadium, he will skipper the Gujarat Titans (GT) against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). With a negative net run-rate, GT’s chances of making the playoffs are slim, and they will need to win big games to maintain their aspirations. However, with just one victory needed from their final two games, KKR is still aiming for a top-two finish despite having already guaranteed a spot in the playoffs. Even with their recent victories, KKR is wary because they remember their losses in the past, including the devastating attack by Rinku Singh.

Due to their strong batting lineup, which includes all four of the highest scorers in IPL history with a rate of over 10 runs per over and over 300 runs scored, KKR has seen a remarkable comeback this season. Interestingly, openers Phil Salt and Sunil Narine have forged reliable alliances, albeit Salt’s exit poses a problem. In addition, KKR’s bowling staff has performed admirably, with four bowlers taking 15 or more wickets at averages under 21 to establish new benchmarks for the IPL.
In anticipation of the forthcoming encounter, GT might depend on Rashid Khan to offset KKR’s batting strength, and Rahmanullah Gurbaz might show up as a wildcard, particularly with Salt out of the picture. Even though GT is now ranked eighth in the standings, they still have minimal hopes of making the playoffs.
