Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans hope to seal the day at a choc-a-bloc PCA stadium

PBKS vs GT: IPL 2023 has already kickstarted its shenanigans early as even before the tournament has crossed the 5-match mark for each team, it feels like a snake and ladder game for the various rungs of the points table and as the tournament advances further, we have another blockbuster clash awaiting us all on a flamboyant Thursday evening as a hard-hitting Punjab Kings takes on the Gujarat Titans.

Punjab Kings had a swashbuckling start to the tournament as they drubbed the likes of Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals before their juggernaut met a screeching halt as they crumbled like a house of cards in front of a resurgent Sunrisers Hyderabad with their entire batting unit wilting under the pump of the Orange Army.

Gujarat Titans also soared off to a phenomenal opening of their title defence as they outclassed Chennai Super Kings without breaking a sweat while getting the better of Delhi Capitals was child’s play for them as they claimed a 4-wickets win over the Warner-led contingent. They were well en route to another victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders until that final over histrionics unfurled where Rinku Singh smashed 5 staggering sixes to clinch a historic win against the reigning champions.


As both sides hope to get back to the winning ways after a rare drop in their form and that too by the barest margin in the case of the Gujarat Titans, expect them come out all guns blazing and put every possible resources on the line, as this game turns into an important fixture where a win would guarantee them a status of reckoning in the latest campaign of IPL whereas a defeat can put their stature in the tournament to some serious contemplation.

PBKS vs GT: Pitch and Weather Report

The surface is an absolute belter of a batting track as the average score batting first is 163. The team batting first will at least try to tot up something close to 200 because the teams chasing has so far been in fine form and unless there is a collapse we will be in for another 400-plus showdown that has been a pretty frequent spectacle in IPL 2023.

The weather predictions state that the skies are going to be clear with not an inkling of clouds in it. Hence, expect this to be a full-blown encounter with presence of dew in the second half.
