GT vs PBKS Dream11 Match Preview

Gujarat Titans are currently the best team of IPL 2022. They are at the top of the points table with 8 wins in 9 matches. They need one game to seal their play-offs spot. They have now won 5 matches in a row. Their batters, especially the lower order, have been in terrific form and have chased down targets from impossible looking situations with ease. Shubman Gill has been decent in the last two games but he’s still far from his best. Wriddhiman Saha, meanwhile, has looked to play his shots in the power play. Hardik Pandya has got out cheaply in the last two games but he is in great form as well. David Miller, Rahul Tewatia and even Rashid Khan have been exceptional in the last few overs of an innings. 

Gujarat has been excellent as a bowling unit as well. Mohmmad Shami, Lockie Ferguson, and Alzarri Joseph have been brilliant as the pace trio. Yash Dayal too was excellent while Pradeep Sangwan also bowled well in his first game and picked 2 wickets. Rashid Khan, like always, has been very economical. Gujarat batters and bowlers have assisted each other quite well and they will look to continue their consistent performance in this game too.

Punjab Kings, on the other hand, are struggling after a good start in the tournament. They have won only 2 games in their last 5 matches. Their “go big or go home”batting approach has backfired as the batters have thrown away their wickets in the middle-phase and they don’t have batting depth. Mayank Agarwal is yet to play a big knock in this season while Shikhar Dhawan has failed in the last two games. The middle-order of Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone, and Jonny Bairstow is an explosive one but all of them need to be consistent. 

 

Their bowling has been decent as Kagiso Rabada, Sandeep Sharma, Rishi Dhawan, and Arshdeep Singh are in good form. Arshdeep particularly has been in exceptional form in the death overs. Rahul Chahar too has bowled well as their main spinner and has been assisted well by Liam Livingstone. Punjab Kings must start winning to keep their play-offs hopes alive.
