PKBS vs GT Probable Playing XI
Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal (captain), Jitesh Sharma (wicket Keeper), Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Odean Smith/Jonny Bairstow, Vaibhav Arora, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapakse
Gujrat Titans: Hardik Pandya (captain), Mathew Wade (wicket-keeper), David Miller, Shubman Gill, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami, Abhinav Manohar, Rashid Khan, Varun Aaron, Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia
Gujrat Titans are more likely to win the match although it is a tough call. Both PKBS and GT has done exceptionally good in previous matches and also won the latest one but we believe that Hardik Pandya has a more balanced team. But Punjab is also filled with enthusiasm so it will surely give GT a better competition.
