PBKS vs GT: IPL 2023 team news

Both teams have lost one match each out of three, but Gujarat are at fourth place due to their superior net run rate (+0.431), while Punjab (-0.281) are sixth, just behind the Chennai Super Kings.

Gujarat’s only defeat was due to Rinku Singh’s record-breaking last over heist: the low-probability outcome should not bother them too much. With Hardik Pandya set to return, they are likely to go in as favourites.

Shikhar Dhawan’s gallant 99 not out came nowhere remotely close to keeping the Sunrisers Hyderabad at bay in Punjab’s last match. Their net run rate took a hit as a result. Nevertheless, Liam Livingstone’s arrival has given them a much-needed boost. At some point, they will also draft in Kagiso Rabada.
