The last time Gujarat Titans (GT) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) went head to head, Rahul Tewatia did the unthinkable and scored 12 off the last two balls to seal the game for his team. Now, both the units will clash again at the DY Patil stadium in Navi Mumbai.
Gujarat Titans (GT)
Gujarat Titans are not only winning games but they are defying odds and baffling minds. They are currently playing with one batter short, yet they manage to chase totals with ridiculous ease. And this is mainly due to the contributions of Rashid, Miller, and Tewatia down the order.
Gujarat’s bowling is one of the best in the competition and they are currently going with the five bowlers formula which seems to be working for them. They just need one win to put a ‘Q’ in front of their name. However, their top-order batting has not been firing on all cylinders which may cost them an important game going forward.
Punjab Kings (PBKS)
Punjab, like its predecessors, has not been able to show consistency. They had a solid batting order who was complemented by good pacers in Arshdeep, Rabada, and leggie Rahul Chahar. But Punjab has failed to click as a unit and was unable to put up complete performances.
Their all-rounders were unable to contribute to their side and Jonny Bairstow, who is a match-winner in the white ball, failed to leave an impact for the Preity-owned side. Skipper Agarwal also has had a lean season and would love to be amongst the runs in this game.
WAGING ODDS: GT (1.83) VS PBKS (2.00)
GT are the favorites and are priced at 1.83, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹183.
PBKS are underdogs and are priced at 2.00 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹200.
It is hard to not choose Gujarat as the favorites in this encounter with the way they have played their cricket this season as they continue to find ways to win. On the other hand, PBKS has failed to regularly put up consistent performances.
