Gujarat Titans vs Punjab Kings T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Gujarat Titans go head to head with Punjab Kings on Thursday evening at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Match 17 of the 2024 Indian Premier League. The Titans have won two of three so far with Punjab Kings losing their last two in the tournament. Read on as we preview this contest. The fixture begins at 19:30 local time in Ahmedabad on April 4th.

It was a convincing win for Gujarat Titans in their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad and was much needed after their heavy defeat against Chennai Super Kings in their previous game. Playing in Ahmedabad once again, the Titans will be firm favourites.

Punjab Kings began the tournament with a strong win over Delhi Capitals but have since been comfortably beaten in successive games. This will be another tough clash for Shikhar Dhawan’s side who are up against a very strong Gujarat Titans team.

GT vs PBKS Match Toss Prediction

Gujarat Titans have won when batting first and when fielding first so far in Ahmedabad this season. With the weather conditions not changing, we predict that both sides will want to chase and will choose to field first if they win the toss.

GT vs PBKS Pitch Report

Any score over 170 in the first innings of this game will be considered a strong total. With the new and old ball, there is always some assistance for the quick bowlers so the batters will want to take advantage of the fielding restrictions during the powerplay.

Ahmedabad Weather Report

According to the weather forecast, there will be cloudy conditions throughout Thursday evening in Ahmedabad. Humidity levels will be low with the temperature no lower than 30 degrees.

GT Team News & Playing 11

GT Team News

Spinner Noor Ahmad came into the side for their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad and he delivered by picking up the big wicket of Australian opener Travis Head. We expect to see the same XI selected for this second successive home match of IPL 2024.

GT Key Players

  • Sai Sudharsan – Although the left-hander has impressed in all three innings, he is yet to hit a half-century in this tournament. He scored four fours and once six against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
  • Shubman Gill – The captain will be frustrated by his scores of 36, 8 and 31 so far in this campaign. However, he is striking the ball cleanly and a big score does not look far away.
  • Rashid Khan – The Afghan spinner delivered the prized wicket of Heinrich Klaasen in the last fixture. He is always one of the most consistent bowlers in a game.
  • Mohit Sharma – The 35 year old pace bowler dismissed Abhishek Sharma, Shahbaz Ahmed and Washington Sundar in the last match with the last two wickets coming in the 20th over.

GT Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Spencer Johnson, BR Sharath, Abhinav Manohar, Sai Kishore, Manav Sutha

Spencer Johnson could well be called upon if the pitch shows a bit more pace than we saw in the last game at this venue. BR Sharath is the natural impact player to be used if an additional batter is required.

GT Team Form

Gujarat Titans had a convincing win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game and have won both of their home fixtures so far in the campaign.

GT Predicted Playing 11

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

PBKS Team News & Playing 11

PBKS Team News

There were no changes for Punjab Kings ahead of their defeat against Lucknow Super Giants in Match 11 and Shikhar Dhawan talked of making the most of the powerplay. No injuries were announced post match and the same XI is anticipated to be selected for this game.

PBKS Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan – The experienced opener was in fine form against Lucknow as he hit 70 runs from 50 balls and put on over 100 for the first wicket.
  • Jonny Bairstow – The English right-hander produced his best knock of the tournament so far as he struck six boundaries in his 42 runs from 29 balls.
  • Sam Curran- the all-rounder has already showcased both his batting and bowling skills in this campaign. He took three wickets with the ball against Lucknow.
  • Arshdeep Singh – The left-arm opening bowler got the two openers – KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock – in the last match. He has the ability to take wickets even when the ball is not swinging.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Prabhsimran Singh, Rilee Rossouw, Tanay Thagarajan, Vidwath Kaverappa, Harpreet Bhatia

As happened in the last game, Arshdeep Singh is likely to be called upon only during the bowling innings with Prabhsimran Singh the likely candidate to replace him when Punjab Kings are batting.

PBKS Team Form

Punjab Kings began the tournament with a victory but come into this match in Ahmedabad looking to avoid their third successive defeat.

PBKS Predicted Playing 11

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

Punjab Kings have lost by 4 wickets and by 21 runs in their last two games and this will be a tough assignment to get back to winning ways against Gujarat Titans who are unbeaten at home in this campaign.
