THE LOWDOWN

GUJARAT TITANS

  • Only a poor net-run-rate is currently keeping Gujarat Titans out of the top four, having responded well to losing comprehensively against Chennai Super Kings, by beating Sunrisers Hyderabad.
  • Gujarat restricted SRH to 162/8 batting first, taking wickets as a means to slow their opponents down, before a well-measured run chase saw them seal victory in the final over, but with seven wickets remaining.

PUNJAB KINGS

  • Punjab Kings’ struggles on the road continued last Saturday as they were well beaten at the hands of Lucknow Super Giants, who overpowered their bowling attack and left the Punjab top order with too much to do in response.
  • Conceding 199 was simply too much from a Punjab point of view and a similar story here will very likely see them lose once again, so the bowlers need to tighten up as a priority regardless of whether they take to the field first or second.

THE PREDICTION

It would be no surprise if this turned out to be a relatively comfortable encounter for Gujarat. Their strong bowling attack on a big ground such as Ahmedabad should be able to manage the big-hitters of Punjab Kings. The control shown by the Titans across their most recent run chase was impressive and their ability to play ‘smart cricket’ at the right times makes them well worth backing in this match.
