The new franchise of Gujarat Titans have played some fine cricket in this new season and they are still unbeaten after 2 matches. With 2 wins from 2 matches, they are at the 3rd spot in the points table. Counterparts Punjab Kings have defeated CSK in the last matches with 2 wins from 3 matches, they are just below the Gujarat Titans at 4th place in the points table.

After getting defeated only in 15 overs against KKR, Punjab Kings have made a solid comeback in the last match against Chennai Super Kings to win the game by 54 runs. Now with a decent net run rate and 2 wins from 3 matches, they are in the top 4 spots of the points table.
Punjab Kings’ batters failed to perform against KKR in their 2nd match and the team got bowled out on just 137 runs. But they worked on that issue in the next match to set up 179 runs on the board against CSK. Liam Livingstone played a brilliant inning of 60runs from only 32 balls to thrash the yellow army’s bowlers.
While defending the target of 180 runs up against the experienced batting lineup of CSK, the debutant Vaibhav Arora bowled a superb spell in the powerplay and sent CSK’s top 2 batsmen into the dugout. Rahul Chahar dismantled CSK’s middle order single-handedly by taking 3 wickets for 25 runs in his spell of 4 overs. Liam Livingstone also did wonders with the ball and picked up 2 wickets for 25 runs.
Punjab Kings are heavily dependent on their batting line up and they are high chances that the batting unit will get more dangerous as Jonny Bairstow is set to join the squad for the upcoming match against Gujarat Titans.

The weather will be sunny on a matchday with temperatures ranging between 34°C and 38°C. The dew factor has played an important role here over the years and that is why his pitch has always been troubling bowlers in the 2nd inning while defending the target.
The venue for this match will be Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. The stadium has a rich history and can accommodate nearly 20,000 spectators. Due to the covid norms, currently, the stadium has got permission to accommodate only 25% of seats.
Toss will be a crucial factor in the match results. In the last 3 IPl matches played here at Brabourne Stadium, the team who chose to chase the target has won 2 times whereas, only Punjab Kings have managed to defend the target against CSK on this ground. By looking at the records and considering a dew factor, the team winning toss should opt to bowl first
By looking at the current form of both the teams, it will be tough to predict a winner through this contest. Both teams are looking strong but the advantage Gujarat Titans have over Punjab Kings is due to the pace attack they have. Mohammed Shami and Lockie Ferguson are looking in solid touch and will try to put pressure on Punjab Kings’ batting unit.
We predict that Gujarat Titans will defeat Punjab Kings!
