Gujarat Titans Vs Punjab Kings

MATCH PREDICTION & ANALYSIS

This will be the fourth meeting between the Gujarat Titans and Punjab Kings, with the hosts winning two of the previous three, including their head-to-head last season by six wickets with one ball remaining.

The Titans have four points from a potential six this season, with just the 2023 Champions Chennai Super Kings edging them out.

The Kings opened the campaign with a surprising victory against the Delhi Capitals, but were later upset by Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Lucknow Super Giants.

All indications are that the Gujarat Titans will triumph again in Ahmedabad, but will this happen?

Teams Preview –

Gujarat Titans :

For all of their big-name players, including skipper Shubman Gill, South African big-hitter David Miller, and Afghan super-spinner Rashid Khan, Sai Sudharsan and Mohit Sharma have been the Gujarat Titans’ best performers thus far in the 2024 IPL.

However, despite being the leading run scorer for his team in each of their first three games, Sudharsan has yet to hit a half-century, and his strike rate, which is now the lowest of any player in the top 25 run scorers, is cause for concern.

Mohit Sharma won the Player of the Match award in the last game in Ahmedabad, and the seasoned bowler, who has remarkable variations, is expected to pose a significant danger in this match.

Gujarat Titans Predicted Playing XI:

Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), Sai Sudharsan, Vijay Shanka, David Miller, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma, Noor Ahmad

Punjab Kings :

Punjab Kings have not been in the mix for the play-offs in recent seasons, and so far this season, it appears like they will not make it into the play-offs again. However, they have enough of skill in their squad, with skipper Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow opening the batting, Liam Livingstone and Sam Curran in the middle order, and Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada being two of the finest pace bowlers in T20 cricket!

In Match 6, the RCB defeated the Kings, and in Match 11, the Lucknow Super Giants defeated them as well. Any team that travels to Ahmedabad knows how difficult it can be, therefore Punjab Kings must perform at the highest level if they hope to win this match.

Punjab Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Shikhar Dhawan (c), Jonny Bairstow, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Shashank Singh, Harpreet Brar, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh

Pitch & Weather Conditions:

Weather :

With cloud cover predicted for the whole day, we do not anticipate seeing much of the sun in Ahmedabad on Thursday evening. Throughout the whole game, the weather will be warm—it won’t get below 31 degrees.

Pitch Report:

So far, the Narendra Modi Stadium has hosted a few highly engaging matches, with no team scoring more than 170 points. The fast bowlers will get help, while the hosts will benefit from a spinner of the calibre of Rashid Khan!

Toss: To Ball

In Ahmedabad, Gujarat Titans have won both the opening batsmanship and the first fielding position in the 2024 IPL. Before this game, we think that both teams will want to chase and, should they win the toss, will decide to bowl first.

Although Punjab Kings are a team that may surprise anyone at any time, based on the two starting lineups and the home form of Gujarat Titans, we are projecting another home victory. Although the Titans have been winning games without many huge individual touchdowns, we believe that might change if David Miller or Shubman Gill have a spectacular play in this game.
