PBKS vs GT Dream11 Match Preview

Punjab Kings will lock horns with the Gujarat Titans in the 16th match of the Indian Premier League 2022. Gujarat is placed at third position with 2 wins in 2 matches while Punjab are placed 4th with 2 wins and 1 defeat in 3 games.

Punjab Kings won their last game quite comfortably against the Chennai Super Kings and are looking good as a team after three matches. Their batting has been dependent on one or two players in the middle-order as Mayank Agarwal has failed with the bat while Shikhar Dhawan too hasn’t played a big knock till now. Liam Livingstone played a great knock in the last game while Bhanuka Rajapaksa has done well in the first two games. Punjab doesn’t have a batting depth in their eleven and need runs from their experienced top order going ahead in the tournament.

Their bowlers are in good form with Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh and Vaibhav Arora looking good. Odean Smith too has assisted them well. Rahul Chahar has been terrific in the spin department while Liam Livingsonte too showed his skills with the ball against CSK. Punjab Kings will look to play as a team and win this match against the Titans.

Gujarat Titans, on the other hand, started their IPL journey in the best possible way as they’ve won their first two IPL games. They defeated the Lucknow Super Giants in the first game and Delhi Capitals in the last one. They are playing as a team with both batters and bowlers performing really well. Shubman Gill and Hardik Pandya are their main batters. Matthew Wade did well in the first game. Vijay Shankar has failed miserably in both the matches while David Miller has looked in decent form. Rahul Tewatia has done well down the order. Titans will need contributions from all their batters.

Their bowling is one of the best in competition with Lockie Ferguson, Mohammad Shami, Rashid Khan, Hardik Pandya, and all the others performing consistently. Gujarat too doesn’t have a lot of depth in their batting and will need contributions from all the players in the batting unit to continue their winning streak.
