PBKS vs GT Team Previews

Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings have just one win to show for their first five matches in the 2024 IPL. They have suffered three successive defeats to the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians. Their latest pursuit of a maiden IPL title has not enjoyed a good start.

Sharshank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma are Punjab's leading run-scorers in this season's IPL. Both are averaging overe 50, but have lacked enough support from the Kings' other batters, especially the overseas recruits. This is Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran and others' cue to step up.

Curran, Kagiso Rabada and Harshal Patel have been excellent with the ball. They have taken 10 wickets each in this year's tournament. Arshdeep Singh, meanwhile, has collected nine wickets. The four seamers have succeeded, but effectively exposed Punjab's lack of solid spinners as well.

Gujarat Titans

The Gujarat Titans have endured a stop-start 2024 IPL campaign so far. With three defeats in five matches, the former champions are struggling at the bottom of the 10-team points table. Victory over Punjab, though, could put them back on track for the rest of a challenging season.

The Titans can lean on Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan for more big performances with the bat. Gill, as captain, will naturally want to lead by example at the top of the order again. He hit 89 not out against Punjab recently - and can draw inspiration from that against the same opposition.

Mohit Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Rashid Khan are the top wicket-takers for the Titans this IPL season. Sharma has eight wickets - and has been used well as an impact player. Khan continues to prove himself as one of the best leg-spinners in world cricket and offers value with the bat.
