IPL 2023: PBKS vs GT Match Prediction 

Reviewed on

The upcoming IPL match, Punjab Kings versus Gujarat Titans, is the subject of this episode of ‘today IPL match prediction.’ While GT won the IPL trophy in their maiden league appearance in 2022, PBKS did not reach the play offs. They finished in 6th place. 

I expect Punjab Kings to beat Gujarat Titans on familiar home territory when the teams meet on 13 April. 

However, the defending champions will not be easy to beat. They have brilliant batsmen and experienced and skilful bowlers. 

This is an important IPL game that can impact the final group standings. The return of the IPL to the home-and-away format has made it a level playing ground for all sides.

PBKS Team Review 

Dhawan, Bairstow and Liam Livingstone are three explosive batsmen set at the top of the PBKS order. Bairstow will also be the wicketkeeper. Jitesh Sharma and Shahrukh Khan represent local talent in the middle order. The team’s best acquisition of the auction – Sam Curran – will occupy the strategic number six spot which will allow him to function as the finisher. Harpreet Brar, Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, and Arshdeep Singh are the rest of the eleven. 

Below is their latest Performance:

GT Team Review 

GT’s best eleven will star the domestic players who helped them win the IPL trophy in 2022. Saha will double as keeper and opener to partner Gill at the top. Williamson will add stability by occupying the number three position. Hardik Pandya will walk in at number four, a position he made his own last year. Tewatia and Miller will grab the next two positions; one of them could play as finisher. That role could also be played by Rashid Khan who walks in next. R Sai Kishore will offer spin partnership to Mohsin Khan. Yash Dayal, Shami and Alzarri Joseph will give the team useful seam options. 

Below is their latest Performance:

PBKS vs GT Head-to-head

PBKS and GT have played two IPL games in the past, both in 2022. The h2h comparison is equally shared by the sides who have won one match each. 

PBKS vs GT Last Meeting

PBKS and GT last clashed with each other in the IPL on 3 May 2022 at Navi Mumbai’s DY Patil Stadium. GT won the toss and chose to bat first. They lost Gill’s wicket (1/17) in the 3rd over. Thereafter, Sai Sudarshan — in at number three — was the lone warrior as wickets fell around him. In the bargain, GT were restricted to 143/8, with Sudarshan (65 from 50 balls) the top scorer. For PBKS, Rabada was the best bowler on display. He took 4/33 in his allotted overs. 

PBKS began their chase on a bad note, losing Jonny Bairstow’s wicket (1/10) in only the 3rd over. That was the cue for Bhanuka Rajapaksa to join Shikhar Dhawan at the wicket. Together, the pair added 87 for the second wicket in quick time. When that partnership finished at the end of the 12th over, PBKS needed only 47 more runs in 8 overs. With the asking rate below 6.00, it was a walk in the park for Dhawan and Livingstone, the new man in. In fact, PBKS won the match with four overs and eight wickets to spare. Dhawan made an unbeaten 62 from 53 balls to emerge the top scorer. For GT, Shami and Ferguson took a wicket each.

Players to look out for 

PBKS will rely on their top order batters to get them off to a blazing start in the powerplay. Their bowling thrust will depend on the performances of the experienced pace duo of Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada. Overall, the variety in their bowling attack will be an advantage for the home side. Sam Curran could prove to be the X factor this season. The England all-rounder will be keen to justify the high price tag in the auction. 

Gill who recently scored a T20 international ton will be expected to bring that form against PBKS. Hardik Pandya will expect to shine with both ball and bat while seeking to lead from the front. GT will depend on Pandya’s aggressive intent at the crease to get the runs they need. Rashid Khan’s all-round skills could prove key to GT’s fortunes this season. The team will especially look forward to wickets and economy when they hand him the ball. 

Toss prediction

GT won the toss in the previous match between the sides. I believe that the luck of the toss will favour PBKS in the upcoming game versus GT. 

Highest scorer

The highest scorer of the upcoming IPL game will probably be PBKS opening batter Dhawan.

Highest wicket taker

PBKS all-rounder Curran will probably register the biggest wicket tally in the upcoming match. 

Highest sixes hitter 

The most sixes in the upcoming PBKS vs GT IPL game will probably come off the bat of Vijay Shankar. 

Most economical bowler

GT leg break googly bowler Rashid Khan will probably be the most economical bowler of this game. 

Most catches 

With a wealth of quality seamers at their disposal, GT can expect their keeper Saha to grab the most catches.
