How will be the playing-11 of Gujarat and Punjab. (IPL Photo)
The current season of Punjab Kings is not going well. His players have not been able to show consistency in their game and in such a situation it will be a challenge for him to choose the right combination against Gujarat Titans.
Punjab Kings (Punjab Kings) The 15th season of the Indian Premier League has landed with a new captain. This season this team is being captained by Mayank Agarwal. However, there has been no change in the team. The performance of the team has remained the same as it used to be in the previous seasons. IPL-2022 (IPL 2022) I am still in this situation. If we look at the performance of Punjab Kings so far, it has not been very impressive. There is no consistency in the performance of the team. In the nine matches played so far, this team has won four and lost six. That is, defeat is behind Punjab. Looking at any area from the team’s bowling to batting, it cannot be said that this team is strong. Gujarat Titans to Punjab in such a damadol situation (Gujarat Titans) Have to face a team like that which is very strong.
Gujarat is the number-1 team in the points table. And the troublesome thing for Punjab is that this team is in excellent form. From its batting to bowling, both are in color and are doing well consistently. If Gujarat beats Punjab, then it will strengthen its claim of playoff very much. If Punjab gets defeated, then its chances of going to the last-4 can be a big setback. A match has been played between both the teams this season in which Gujarat won.
Punjab will have to make changes
If the batting of Punjab’s team is seen, then Mayank’s form is a matter of concern. He is unable to run. Jonny Bairstow has consistently disappointed. Shikhar Dhawan and Liam Livingston are the only batsmen who can be said to be in form. In such a situation, the team needs to make changes in its playing-11. By dropping Bairstow, the team can give a chance to Odeon Smith or Shahrukh Khan. If Odeon Smith comes, then one advantage Punjab will have is that they will have an additional bowling option.
Hardik Pandya will not change!
Gujarat captain Pandya made two changes in the last match. In the playing-11, Abhinav Manohar was dropped and Sai Sudarshan was given a chance and in place of Yash Dayal, Pradeep Sangwan was fed. Both were very impressed. In such a situation, it does not seem that Pandya will make any changes in his playing-11 against Punjab.
Probable playing-11 of both the teams
Gujarat Titans- Hardik Pandya (captain), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Sai Sudarshan, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Lockie Ferguson, Pradeep Sangwan, Mohammed Shami.
