Coming in from their 1st defeat in their last games respectively, Punjab Kings will face off against Gujarat Titans in the 18th match of IPL 2023. 

PBKS vs GT: Match Preview:


While Shikhar Dhawan has been consistent in his outings in the IPL 2023 so far, the other batters have failed to step up. While Dhawan is currently the orange cap holder with 225 runs while being dismissed only once, opener Prabhsimran Singh has been the 2nd highest scorer for PBKS with 83 runs in 3 games, which portrays the state of Punjab’s batting affairs. 

Arshdeep Singh has been impressive for Punjab in the bowling, especially in the first 6 overs. The left-arm pacer has 6 wickets to his name in 3 innings while Nathan Ellis has 5 wickets including a 4-wicket haul. The spinners Rahul Chahar and Sikandar Raza haven’t been up to the mark and would look to turn things around soon. 

Defending champions Gujarat Titans were incredible while batting in their last game. While Sai Sudharsan played a sturdy knock of 53 runs in 38 balls while Vijay Shankar smashed 63 runs off just 24 deliveries with 4 fours & 5 sixes, as GT posted 204 on the board. 

However, the bowlers failed to contain the opposition at the start. Even though standing-in skipper Rashid Khan’s hattrick somewhat brought them back in the game, Yash Dayal’s off-day with the ball eventually caused GT’s first loss of the IPL. Apart from 3 wickets from Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph picked up 2 wickets while pacers Mohammed Shami and Joshua Little managed 1 wicket each.
