PBKS vs GT Dream11 Prediction: 

  • With 225 runs at a strike-rate of 149.00, Shikhar Dhawan is having an excellent campaign and we expect him to be Punjab Kings’ highest run scorer in this match. Arshdeep Singh has taken six wickets in this competition and he is well worth backing as Punjab Kings’ top wicket taker against Gujarat Titans.
  • Shubman Gill has batted in 101 T20 games and is approaching 3000 T20 runs. The opener is our tip for Gujarat Titans’ highest run scorer in this game. Rashid Khan is averaging a wicket every nine balls in this year’s tournament and he is our pick for Gujarat Titans’ top wicket taker against Punjab Kings.
  • After taking six wickets from his last two appearances, we are backing Rashid Khan to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

Top 5 Key Players: 


Shikhar Dhawan 

The skipper hit 12 fours and five sixes in his innings which represented 69% of his team’s score on Sunday. He is in fine form this season.

Kagiso Rabada 

The South African right-arm pace bowler is expected to make his first appearance of the campaign in this game and has a strike-rate of 14.42 in the IPL.

Arshdeep Singh 

The left-arm opening bowler continues to take wickets on a consistent basis across all formats. He dismissed the dangerous Harry Brook in the defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad.

PBKS Possible Impact Players Substitute 

Nathan Ellis, Sikandar Raza, Harpreet Bhatia, Rishi Dhawan

Zimbabwean all-rounder Sikandar Raza was used as an impact player on Sunday and is a good early option to bolster the batting and bowling. Rishi Dhawan is a similar player although bowls pace as opposed to spin.


Shubman Gill 

The right-handed opener began the tournament with 63 runs against Chennai Super Kings and has hit over 100 runs across the IPL 2023.

Sai Sudharsan 

The 21 year old left-handed batter comes into this game looking to make his third successive half-century in the tournament.

Rashid Khan 

The Afghan leg-spinner took a hat-trick against Kolkata Knight Riders and very nearly won the game for his side.

GT Possible Impact Players Substitute 

Abhinav Manohar, Josh Little, Jayant Yadav, Matthew Wade

Irish left-arm pace bowler Josh Little is always a wicket taking option with Australia’s Matthew Wade a clear big-hitting attacking batter.
