GT vs PBKS: IPL Stats and Records at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad | Top Vip News


The 17th game of Indian Premier League 2024 will be played in Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Gujarat Titans (GT) will be the host Kings of Punjab (PBKS). On the one hand, GT has 2 wins in three games, while PBKS is on a two-match losing streak. Gujarat Titans will play their third home game in four matches, but PBKS will play their third consecutive away game.

GT bounced back from their big loss to Chennai Super Kings, beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 7 wickets in Ahmedabad. After SRH elected to bat, their batting never quite clicked due to Player of the Match Mohit Sharma. The two-time finalists looked to be in trouble before Sai Sudharsan and David Miller kept their cool to lead the chase smoothly.

The Shikhar Dhawan-led team beat Delhi Capitals in Mullanpur in their first match, but successive away matches against RCB and LSG resulted in defeats and the initial success was short-lived.

X factors for GT vs PBKS:

Gujarat Titans:

Even in a difficult pitch against Sunrisers Hyderabad, it was Mohit Sharma’s accurate killer delivery that restricted SRH to just 162. In a similar pitch, he will again be needed to stop the likes of Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone; However, the inclusion of the latter is suspected after suffering an injury in the previous Punjab fixture.

Kings of Punjab:

If the pitch will be as bowling friendly as the last two matches, Kagiso Rabada will be a big threat to the Indian GT top order. He may be struggling a bit, but the veteran pacer possesses enough skills to be a threat. Rabada also has the ability to bowl at any stage of an innings, making him the preferred option depending on changing situations in the game.
