PBKS vs GT Team Previews

Punjab Kings

After scoring back-to-back wins at the start of the season, the Punjab Kings faltered at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad as they lost out to the hosts, SRH. However, these are early days in the tournament and the Punjab Kings have plenty of time to recover. Almost all the IPL betting apps see PBKS as serious contenders for a playoff spot this season.

Shikhar Dhawan will be the key batsman for the Punjab Kings here. He scored an unbeaten 99 in the last match, even as the wickets kept tumbling around him, to take his team to a respectable total. With that knock, he is now at the top of the list of contenders for the Orange Cap.

He has found a good opening partner in the form of Prabhsimran Singh, and together, the duo will be looking to put up a big opening partnership. One of the biggest areas of concern for the team will be their middle order which tends to crumble under pressure.

Jitesh Sharma and Shahrukh Khan have failed to lend stability to the middle order, while the all-rounders, Sam Curran and Sikandar Raza have failed to provide the late flourish. Talking about the bowling, the seamers, Arshdeep Singh and Nathan Ellis have picked up 11 wickets between them.

However, the others, including spinners Raza and Rahul Chahar, have failed to rein in the opposition. Sam Curran has been pretty expensive this season. The Kings will need to work better as a unit if they want to win here.

Gujarat Titans

Just like the Punjab Kings, the Gujarat Titans made a positive start to the season. But geurw winning streak was halted in its tracks by the Kolkata Knight Riders last weekend.

Defending a mammoth target of 205, stand-in captain Rashid Khan almost assured the hosts of a victory by claiming the first hat trick of the 2023 season. However, Rinku Singh from KKR dispatched the last 5 deliveries of the match for consecutive sixes to clinch a historic victory. We checked the IPL betting sites for odds being offered in the final over and they were 101.00 for KKR to win before the second ball was bowled!

Nevertheless, the Titans will be looking to put that loss behind them and start afresh here. The top-order batsmen, including Shubham Gill, Sai Sudharsan, and Vijay Shankar are in good form for Gujarat. However, Wriddhiman Saha hasn’t yet played a big inning this season and will be hoping to get some runs under his belt. The Titans have plenty of depth in their batting thanks to the presence of Hardik Pandya, Rahul Tewatia, and Rashid Khan.

The seamers, Mohammad Shami and Alzarri Joseph have done an excellent job with the new ball so far, while Rashid Khan has outfoxed plenty of batsmen with his spin. The team does seem a bit lacking in the 5th bowler. The Titans will once again rely on their batting to put up a big score here.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali is usually considered good for batting and has seen an average first-inning score of around 168 in the evening games. There might be some dew later on in the match which will make it a bit difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball. That said, there are some green patches on the pitch which will help the quicker bowlers early on.

The weather is expected to be clear with temperatures below 30 degrees Celsius. 



PBKS vs GT Betting Tips

While both teams have charted similar journeys till now in this season, we feel that the visitors enjoy the edge here. They have a more balanced side of the two teams and most of their players, especially the batsmen, are in good form. On the other hand, the Punjab Kings are top-heavy and the middle order is likely to crumble under pressure.

    Gujarat Titans Total Boundaries

    Over 15.5 (2.00)


The top order for the Gujarat Titans is in good form and are all prolific scorers. They have a lot of depth in their batting too, and with the likes of Miller and Tewatia batting in the death overs, we are likely to see plenty of boundaries from the visitors.

  1. Betway


    Rashid Khan Total Wickets

    Over 1.5 (2.00)


Rashid Khan is in brilliant form at the moment and has picked up 8 wickets in 3 matches so far. He picked up a hat trick in his latest outing and we are backing him to bowl another good spell here.

  1. Megapari


    Punjab Kings Total Runs 1st 6 overs

    Under 52.50 (1.53)


The Punjab Kings have a strong opening pair in the form of Prabhsimran Singh and Shikhar Dhawan. However, Prabhsimran Singh takes a lot of risks and can get out early while Dhawan has a tendency to start slow. We think the Over/Under line is quite low and you can bet Under 52.5 in this one.
