The Gujarat Titans take on the Punjab Kings in this IPL 2022 play-off match with a good chance of making the playoffs. Although nothing is certain until it is done, it seems impossible for the Titans to miss out on the playoffs from where they are currently sitting. It’s a different story with the Punjab Kings.
Currently, they are in the middle of the pack in the IPL 2022 standings after failing to win two games in a row. To have a chance of making the playoffs, they’ll have to get their act together.
The odds of the Gujarat Titans winning this match are very close among the various IPL betting sites, but the disparity is negligible. In other words, the teams appear to be more evenly matched than you might have thought possible.

GT vs PBKS Team Previews
Despite losing one game, the Gujarat Titans are undefeated thus far. For a team that had been derided following the auction, that’s quite an accomplishment. Five of their victories have come down to the final ball, and two of those victories have been won on the last play.
If we had a little bit of bad luck, this season could have been very different.
Hardik Pandya’s availability for this match has been questioned following his previous match with Umran Malik, who struck him. In any case, his last few games have seen him not take a single wicket in the bowling department.
A strong bowling attack has been the Gujarat Titans’ major strength thus far. In addition to the three world-class bowlers Mohammad Shami, Rashid Khan and Lockie Ferguson, Pradeep Sangwan also impressed in his previous match. It is also expected that Alzarri Joseph will continue to play while Pandya is out of the batting order.
The batting order has a few unanswered questions. Despite a promising start, Shubman Gill’s IPL 2022 career has waned. There were three other players in the top-four in the previous match: Wriddhiman Saha, Hardik Pandya, and Sai Sudharshan
Rahul Tewatia, David Miller, and even Rashid Khan have bailed out the Gujarat Titans numerous times, but this isn’t a long-term solution.

To beat LSG, the Punjab Kings had a great chance, but they needed a small chase. We think the Kings will be happier to play at the DY Patil Stadium in this match because of the spin-friendly wicket.
As well as an excellent bowling attack, the Punjab Kings’ batting is also very strong. There are only five international players in their starting lineup, so they must rely heavily on them to make crucial plays in games. That hasn’t happened yet, unfortunately. Only Mayank Aggarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Liam Livingstone can claim to have been as consistent as required in the batting department.
To start winning, the Punjab Kings must find their best lineup, balance, and player combinations in the upcoming group matches.
They’ve had a great bowling lineup for the Punjab Kings this season. Even though he doesn’t take many wickets, Arshdeep Singh is now the team’s go-to bowler at the end of the innings.
The quartet of Rabada, Chahar, Arshdeep, and Sandeep Sharma should be winning more games than they are currently.

GT VS PBKS TOSS PREDICTION
The toss is a coin toss, and the winning team wishes to bat first. Teams may opt to chase targets in locations where some dew is expected because the wickets have slowed down a bit.

Pitch and Conditions
The DY Patil Stadium’s surface has also gotten a little softer and more conducive to spinning. The previous game between Rajasthan and Mumbai, which was played here, demonstrated this. But the chasing team still benefited from the dew, making it much easier for them to bat in the second inning than it would have been otherwise.
When placing your wagers, remember to account for the outcome of the coin toss. We believe that a score of 160 or so is a reasonable benchmark.
