The 16th match of the IPL 2022 will be played between Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on 8th April 2022. Both the teams have come up by winning their last games and will try to continue that winning momentum when they will face each other in Mumbai.

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.

This match will be important for both the teams as Gujarat Titans are looking to move to the top position by winning all 3 matches, whereas Mayank Agarwal-led Punjab Kings will also try to continue their momentum from the last game when they face the Titans.

Punjab Kings Preview

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. It will be a treat to watch when the fiery batting unit of Punjab will face the lethal pace of Gujarat Titans in this battle on 8th April.

Key Players: Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Rahul Chahar.

Punjab Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, Jitesh Sharma, Odeon Smith, Arshdeep Singh, Rahul Chahar, Kagiso Rabada, Vaibhav Arora.

Gujarat Titans Preview

The new franchise of the Gujarat Titans have gelled up very quickly in the new season and have clinched 2 out of 2 games to be at 3rd place in the points table. Hardik Pandya led this unit and they have played brilliant cricket in the last 2 matches against Lucknow Super Giants and Delhi Capitals.

Gujarat Titans have won their first game against LSG by chasing the target whereas they have defeated Delhi Capitals in their second game by defending a total of 172 runs. While playing against Delhi Capitals, opener Shubman Gill had shown his class and played a superb knock of 84 runs from 46 balls. Hardik Pandya supported him with his 31 runs from 27 balls.

Gujarat’s bowling attack was lethal against Delhi Capitals. Both pacers Mohammed Shami and Lockie Ferguson didn't give any opportunity to construct partnerships for Delhi’s batters. Shami had managed to take 2 wickets for 30 runs in his 4 overs whereas Lockie Ferguson had picked up 4 key wickets by giving just 28 runs in his 4 overs.

Gujarat Titans are looking like a balanced squad and the unit is in good form so far this season. They have plus points over Punjab Kings because o their pace attack and they will try to utilize that properly when they face kings in their 3rd match in Mumbai.

Key Players: Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami.

Gujarat Titans Predicted Playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade (wk), Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Abhinav Manohar, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami, Varun Aaron.

Weather Conditions

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. 

Venue Details

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: To Bowl

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!
