PBKS vs GT Today Match Prediction Cricket Betting Tips

  • PBKS
    • Punjab Kings are currently ranked seventh in the 2024 IPL standings, a challenging position as the season unfolds. Although they have a talented roster, inconsistency has plagued their campaign. Kagiso Rabada leads the team’s fast bowling attack and consistently takes key wickets. The contribution of Arshdeep Singh has also been significant, providing control during the death overs. Some younger players have filled in intermittently for the departure of stalwarts such as KL Rahul on the batting front. In order to turn the tide of a game, the middle order must fire in unison to turn the tide. This middle-order performance will likely determine the strategy they will use against GT’s strong bowling lineup, so it is important to watch closely.
  • GT
    • With a win probability of 54%, Gujarat Titans are in a slightly better position than Punjab Kings, currently in the 6th position just above them. The team is led by Shubman Gill, a young player who has demonstrated a high level of resilience and adaptability. It has been Gill’s leadership and batting prowess that have been critical to the success of the team, along with key performances from national and international players. As a result of their versatile and effective bowling unit, they have been able to hold opposition scores in check, with spinners playing a crucial role when the wicket is turned. While the batting lineup is strong, it has occasionally faltered under pressure, suggesting a weakness that could be exploited by Punjab Kings. Maintaining momentum during critical phases will be essential for Gujarat Titans, especially during the middle overs, both with the bat and with the ball.

PBKS vs GT Head-to-Head Record

  • PBKS
    • Punjab Kings have shown moments of brilliance in their encounter with Gujarat Titans, but have struggled to maintain consistency throughout. Their performance against Gujarat Titans has historically been mixed with thrilling finishes. Players such as KL Rahul have historically made significant contributions to Punjab Kings’ strategy by maximizing the strength of their batting lineup. With Rahul having left, the responsibility has been transferred to newer members, who are tasked with filling big shoes. They have stifled Gujarat Titans’s batsmen in crucial moments with their bowling, led by Kagiso Rabada. The aggressive batting style and strategic bowling changes employed by Punjab Kings in recent seasons have yielded variable results, setting the stage for an intriguing match-up in the 2024 season where they will attempt to leverage their home advantage and correct past inconsistencies.
  • GT
    • A relatively favorable record has been achieved by Gujarat Titans against Punjab Kings, who have demonstrated strategic bowling and adaptable batting. As a result of Shubman Gill’s leadership, Gujarat Titans has been able to craft several match-winning strategies, particularly through their dynamic bowling lineup that has successfully exploited the weaknesses of the Punjab Kings batsmen. Gujarat Titans’s bowlers, especially the spinners, have played a crucial role in controlling the game’s tempo and creating favorable conditions for their batsmen in previous encounters. Based on their recent form and head-to-head statistics, they may be able to prevail once again in a competitive match-up with their balanced team composition.

Weather Conditions

On Sunday evening, there will be moderate weather at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur, with temperatures around 23°C and partly cloudy skies. There is a 24% chance of rain, and the high humidity (89%) may cause a significant dew factor in the second innings, which will affect the ball’s grip. The light winds (5 km/h) will have a minimal impact on the bowling conditions, which could suggest that teams will opt to bowl first in order to take advantage of the better bowling conditions early on.

Venue and Pitch Conditions

During the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League in 2024, the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur will provide a new arena for the Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans to battle it out. This venue, which provides equal assistance to pacers and spinners, is known for its lush outfield and balanced pitch. The pitch appears to be a bit slower than usual, so accurate bowling and strategic batting are likely to be rewarded. Various adjustments have been made to the pitch preparation to enhance bounce, potentially bringing benefits to batsmen who enjoy playing on the rise. It might be preferable for teams to bat second to take advantage of better batting conditions later in the game due to variable weather conditions, including dew in the evening.


Both teams enter this contest with points to prove and the middle of the table tightly contested. Punjab Kings will look to exploit any batting fragility in the Gujarat Titans lineup, while Gujarat Titans will aim to outmaneuver Punjab Kings with strategic bowling changes and disciplined batting. This match promises to be a tightly contested affair, with key individual battles likely to decide the outcome.
