In the 16th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Punjab Kings (PBKS) will be up against Gujarat Titans (GT) at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium on Friday.

Gujarat has been undefeated so far in the fifteenth season of the cash-rich league. They have won both their two matches against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Delhi Capitals (DC). Similarly, Punjab have won two of their total three matches in the competition.

Pitch report:

The track at Brabourne Stadium will help seamers to take some early advantage, but the spinners will have some impact as well. The shorter boundaries would assist batters in piling up a competitive total, so fans can expect another cracker of a game.

Probable XIs:

Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa/Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma, Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Vaibhav Arora, Arshdeep Singh.

Gujarat Titans: Matthew Wade, Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Abhinav Manohar/Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Aaron, Mohammed Shami.

Match Prediction:

Case 1:

  • PBSK wins the toss and bowls first
  • Powerplay score: 45-55
  • GT total: 155-165

Case 2:

  • GT wins the toss and bowls first
  • Powerplay score: 50-60
