Gujarat Titans vs Punjab Kings top picks

GT: Skipper Hardik Pandya has looked in great touch this campaign, especially with the bat. Despite having an off day in the previous match, Hardik sits fourth on the leading run-scorers list with 308 runs at an average of 51.33.

But GT’s biggest strength, however, is the middle order, featuring Rahul Tewatia, David Miller and Rashid Khan, that has time and again defied odds. They are expected play a crucial part in this fixture.

PBKS: With the bat, Punjab’s openers Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal will hold the key to the team’s fortunes. Dhawan had an unbeaten 88 in the match against CSK last week and sits on fifth in the Orange Cap race with 307 runs.

If the openers fail, Liam Livingstone can steady the ship. He struck a lightning-fast 27-ball 64 in the previous meeting between Punjab and Gujarat.  

Among the bowlers, Arshdeep Singh has been phenomenal for the Kings in the death overs when the pressure is off the charts. Although the left arm pacer does not pick wickets that often, his economical bowling has done the job.

Gujarat Titans vs Punjab Kings IPL 2022 prediction

Gujarat Titans have always found a way to pick up wins this season. Their batting depth can be the differentiator in this match and help them fetch full points.

On the other hand, if Kagiso Rabada and Sandeep Sharma can continue their impressive run and support Arshdeep, Punjab might have a small chance on Tuesday.
