Punjab Kings have played 3 matches in the series and they are currently ranked fourth on the points table, while Gujarat Titans have played 2 matches in the series and they are currently ranked third on the points table. The Punjab Kings have a fantastic batting lineup that includes a number of power hitters. They are having a difficult time fitting Jonny Bairstow into the playing XI, which appears to be established. There is a case to be made for Odean Smith to be benched in favour of a more energetic batter, but it will be a difficult decision to make.
Vaibhav Arora had a fantastic previous game, when he was brought in particularly to exploit movement with the new ball, which he accomplished brilliantly. Rahul Chahar has the potential to be a game-changer. Gujarat’s batting isn’t the best, but it does have individuals who can take the game away from the opponent on their own; Shubman Gill was one of them in the last game.
In both innings, allrounder Hardik Pandya will be vital. If Varun Aaron is injured, Yash Dayal may make his debut. Lockie Ferguson must be avoided.
