PBKS vs GT Playing XI: Punjab Kings likely to bench Jitesh Sharma for Jonny Bairstow

PBKS vs GT: Punjab Kings tempted to bench Jitesh Sharma with Jonny Bairstow as PBKS seek win against Gujarat Titans

The stage is set for a thrilling encounter as Punjab Kings lock horns with Gujarat Titans. For this high octane encounter, PBKS might be tempted to bench Jitesh Sharma. The Indian keeper has been off form in the recent games and Jonny Bairstow can be idea replacement.

Jonny Bairstow for Jitesh Sharma?

Sam Curran might be tempted to bench Jitesh Sharma. The Indian keeper has been rather quite off late and with PBKS keen to grab wins, they might be forced for the change. PBKS are currently placed second last from the bottom of the Points Table. As a result, it is imperative that Punjab Kings find their form back and stay in contention for the IPL 2024 Playoffs. Should Jonny Bairstow come to play, then PBKS can field Atharva Taide in their Playing XI

Gujarat Titans unwilling to tinker with set Playing XI

Shubman Gill and Co are placed 8th, just a spot above Punjab Kings. But Gujarat Titans would be unwilling to tinker with their Playing XI. The last year’s runner’s up are going through a bad patch despite having won 3 games this season. GT would be looking to build on their consistency against PBKS.

Punjab Kings Playing XI: Prabhsimran Singh, Sam Curran, Rilee Rossouw, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma/Jonny Bairstow, Shashank Singh, Ashutosh Sharma, Harpreet Brar, Kagiso Rabada, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh

Gujarat Titans Playing XI: Shubman Gill (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller,Abhinav Manohar, Shahrukh Khan, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, Spencer Johnson, Umesh Yadav
