Punjab Kings who are in good form this season will be up against Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans in the 15th season of the Indian Premier League on 8th April, Friday at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Mayank Agarwal’s side has won two games and that was against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings. They also lost one game against Kolkata Knight Riders this season. However, the team looks balanced and it doesn’t seem that they are going to change their playing XI against Gujarat Titans on Friday.
Predicted Punjab Kings XI: Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Shahrukh Khan, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Kagiso Rabada, Odean Smith, Vaibhav Arora, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh.
On the other hand, the new IPL franchise Gujarat Titans are playing an exceptional type of game as they are the only team who haven’t lost a game in this season’s IPL. Hardik Pandya’s side is a perfectly balanced side and they have got so many match-winners in their team. Gujarat Titans’ bowling attack also looks good and because of this, their team hasn’t faced a defeat. But is their squad strong enough to defeat Punjab kings on Friday?
Predicted Gujarat Titans XI: Matthew Wade (wk), Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya (c), Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia, David Miller, Rashid Khan, Abhinav Manohar, Varun Aaron, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami.
