  • Sai Sudharsan has been Gujarat Titans’ highest run scorer in all three of their games so far in this campaign and the left-hander is our tip for their top run scorer against Punjab Kings. Mohit Sharma took 3/25 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and he is a strong choice for Gujarat Titans’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • Shikhar Dhawan hit ten boundaries in Match 11 against Lucknow Super Giants and the skipper is well worth selecting as Punjab Kings’ highest run scorer against Gujarat Titans. Arshdeep Singh has taken a two-wicket haul in two of the three matches and he is our pick for Punjab Kings’ top wicket taker in this clash.
  • The experienced Mohit Sharma is yet to go wicketless in the 2024 IPL and we recommend backing him to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

Toss Predictions

Gujarat Titans have won when batting first and when fielding first so far in Ahmedabad this season. With the weather conditions not changing, we predict that both sides will want to chase and will choose to field first if they win the toss.

Weather & Pitch Report


According to the weather forecast, there will be cloudy conditions throughout Thursday evening in Ahmedabad. Humidity levels will be low with the temperature no lower than 30 degrees.

Pitch Report:

Any score over 170 in the first innings of this game will be considered a strong total. With the new and old ball, there is always some assistance for the quick bowlers so the batters will want to take advantage of the fielding restrictions during the powerplay.

Winning Chances: 

Punjab Kings have lost by 4 wickets and by 21 runs in their last two games and this will be a tough assignment to get back to winning ways against Gujarat Titans who are unbeaten at home in this campaign. We expect Punjab Kings to be competitive, particularly with their opening batters, but overall we are predicting a close game with Gujarat Titans getting the win.

Gujarat Titans to beat Punjab Kings.

Gujarat Titans a 43% chance to win this match 

Punjab Kings have a 57% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Gujarat Titans 

Sai Sudharsan 

Although the left-hander has impressed in all three innings, he is yet to hit a half-century in this tournament. He scored four fours and once six against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Shubman Gill 

The captain will be frustrated by his scores of 36, 8 and 31 so far in this campaign. However, he is striking the ball cleanly and a big score does not look far away.

Rashid Khan 

The Afghan spinner delivered the prized wicket of Heinrich Klaasen in the last fixture. He is always one of the most consistent bowlers in a game.

Mohit Sharma 

The 35 year old pace bowler dismissed Abhishek Sharma, Shahbaz Ahmed and Washington Sundar in the last match with the last two wickets coming in the 20th over.

GT Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Spencer Johnson, BR Sharath, Abhinav Manohar, Sai Kishore, Manav Sutha 

Spencer Johnson could well be called upon if the pitch shows a bit more pace than we saw in the last game at this venue. BR Sharath is the natural impact player to be used if an additional batter is required.

Punjab Kings 

Shikhar Dhawan 

The experienced opener was in fine form against Lucknow as he hit 70 runs from 50 balls and put on over 100 for the first wicket.

Jonny Bairstow 

The English right-hander produced his best knock of the tournament so far as he struck six boundaries in his 42 runs from 29 balls.

Sam Curran 

the all-rounder has already showcased both his batting and bowling skills in this campaign. He took three wickets with the ball against Lucknow.

Arshdeep Singh 

The left-arm opening bowler got the two openers – KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock – in the last match. He has the ability to take wickets even when the ball is not swinging.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Prabhsimran Singh, Rilee Rossouw, Tanay Thagarajan, Vidwath Kaverappa, Harpreet Bhatia 

As happened in the last game, Arshdeep Singh is likely to be called upon only during the bowling innings with Prabhsimran Singh the likely candidate to replace him when Punjab Kings are batting.

Team Forms: 

GT Team Form: 

Gujarat Titans had a convincing win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game and have won both of their home fixtures so far in the campaign.

PBKS Team Form: 

Punjab Kings began the tournament with a victory but come into this match in Ahmedabad looking to avoid their third successive defeat.
