Punjab Kings vs Gujarat Titans, IPL 2024: Predicted Playing XIs Of Both Teams And Impact Substitutes | Cricket News

Punjab Kings (PBKS) will take on Gujarat Titans (GT) in the 37th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur on Sunday. Having won only two games out of seven, Punjab Kings are languishing ninth in the IPL 2024 standings. On the other hand, Gujarat Titans are currently placed eighth in the IPL 2024 standings with six points on the board after winning three matches out of seven matches.

Ahead of this exciting clash, we look at the predicted XIs of both sides.

PBKS Predicted XI

Atharva Taide

Young Atharva Taide is expected to start for PBKS in this match against GT in place of the injured Shikhar Dhawan. Atharva scored 15 off 12 balls in his last outing and will aim to capitalise on his opportunity against GT.

Rilee Rossouw

Rilee Rossouw failed to produce runs against MI. However, the South African batter made 209 runs in his nine outings last season. On Sunday, PBKS will be counting on Rossouw to perform well and demonstrate his full batting talent.

Sam Curran

England all-rounder Sam Curran will be the stand-in captain in place of Dhawan. Apart from his leadership, PBKS will need Curran to contribute with both bat and ball. Curran has picked up 10 wickets and scored 132 runs in seven games so far.

Liam Livingstone

Flamboyant all-rounder Liam Livingstone has been an integral member of Punjab Kings since 2022. The hard-hitting batter has shown good form in IPL 2024, having scored 105 runs in five games at an average of 35 and a strike rate of 156.72. He has also bagged one wicket with his off-spin.

Shashank Singh

Shashank Singh has grabbed the limelight with his impressive batting performances this season. Shashank has already amassed 187 runs in seven matches at an average of 62.33 and a strike rate of 179.81. He will aim to continue his scintillating form.

Jitesh Sharma

Jitesh Sharma, the swashbuckling wicketkeeper-batter, showed signs of returning to form in the game against RR. Batting in the middle-order, Jitesh hit 29 off 24 balls to help PBKS reach a respectable total, and he will be hoping to have a bigger impact against GT as well.

Ashutosh Sharma

Ashutosh Sharma has been one of PBKS’ most consistent performers this season. The 25-year-old has scored 156 runs in four matches, with a strike rate of 205.26 and an average of 52. He nearly won the game for PBKS against MI by scoring 61 off just 28 balls. He could be a game-changer against GT at home.

Harpreet Brar

Left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar has been economical for the Kings in IPL 2024. Apart from bowling with an economy of 7.17, Brar has also scalped four wickets in seven matches and will look to add to his tally in Mullanpur.

Harshal Patel

Right-arm pacer Harshal Patel has provided key breakthroughs for PBKS in IPL 2024. Bowling in the middle and death overs, Harshal has claimed ten wickets in seven matches and will look to restrict the GT batters in their upcoming fixture.

Kagiso Rabada

Kagiso Rabada has been one of the leading wicket-takers for the Kings this season so far. The South African pacer has already bagged 10 wickets in seven games at an economy of 8.32. He will aim to provide early breakthroughs against GT.

Arshdeep Singh

Left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh was not at his best against Mumbai Indians but will look to bounce back after he finished with figures of 0/35 in his 3 overs. While Arshdeep has conceded a few runs in the death overs, he has picked up nine wickets.

GT Predicted XI

Wriddhiman Saha (wicketkeeper)

Gujarat Titans’ wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha has played five matches and scored only 78 runs. Though his wicket-keeping ability is exceptional, he still needs to deliver with the bat, and this is an excellent opportunity for him.

Shubman Gill (Captain)

GT captain, Shubman Gill will look to continue his good form in the ongoing IPL. The stylish right-handed batter has amassed 263 runs in seven games at a strike rate of 151.14 while also maintaining an average of 43.83.

Sai Sudharsan

Sai Sudharsan has been one of the standout batters for GT in IPL 2024 so far. The 22-year-old southpaw has scored 238 runs in seven matches at an average of 34 and a strike rate of 127.96. He will aim to score big on Sunday.

David Miller

Hard-hitting David Miller could play a key role in Gujarat Titans’ playing XI against Punjab Kings. The South Africa middle-order batter is due for a big score after accumulating just 79 runs in four matches this season. Apart from his batting credentials, Miller also adds value to any team with his brilliant fielding skills.

Abhinav Manohar

Abhinav Manohar has played only two IPL games this season but did not perform well enough. The hard-hitting batter has scored 615 runs in 35 T20s at a strike rate of 152.60 and will look to impress against the Kings to cement his place in the Titans’ XI.

Rahul Tewatia

Rahul Tewatia has been one of the standout finishers in the IPL over the last few seasons. Batting in the lower middle-order, Tewatia has once again produced a few blitzkrieg cameos in IPL 2024 and has made 113 runs at a strike rate of 132.94.

Rashid Khan

Star leg-spinner Rashid Khan has been a match-winner for the Titans since 2022. The Afghanistan cricketer has scalped seven wickets in just as many matches at an economy of 7.81. He also played a match-winning cameo of an 11-ball 24 against RR.

Mohit Sharma

Mohit Sharma has been the leading wicket-taker for GT in IPL 2024. The 35-year-old right-arm pacer has picked up eight wickets in seven matches and is expected to play a key role on Sunday.

Noor Ahmad

Noor Ahmad has been an integral member of Gujarat Titans since last season. The 19-year-old left-arm spinner has picked up 19 wickets in 18 matches at an economy of 7.88 and an average of 26.95 in the IPL.

Spencer Johnson

Spencer Johnson has provided variety to Gujarat Titans’ bowling department. The Australian left-arm pacer has claimed four wickets in five matches this season and could trouble PBKS’ batting line-up.

Sandeep Warrier

Indian fast bowler Sandeep Warrier replaced Umesh Yadav in Gujarat Titans’ playing XI in their previous outing. Playing in his first IPL 2024 game against Delhi Capitals, Warrier dismissed Prithvi Shaw and Abishek Porel to finish with figures of 2/40. The 33-year-old will look to make an impact against PBKS in Mullanpur.
