GT vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Fantasy Cricket Tips – IPL 2024 17th Match | GT vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction Today | Ahmedabad Pitch Report

After losing their first match, Gujarat Titans are seeking their third-straight win. On the contrary, Punjab Kings are looking to avoid their third-straight loss after winning their opening encounter.

The 17th match of IPL 2024 has a sense of importance to it. Gujarat will go level with high-flyers Rajasthan and Kolkata with a win here, which is vital given their net run rate is a lowly -0.738. Last time out against SRH, the bowlers, led by Mohit Sharma, were efficient and the batsmen were equally impressive in the chase.

Indeed, today is a test of PBKS’ credentials. This game is an indication on whether this season can be any different for the franchise who need to keep pace with those ahead of them. Their bowling, which looks solid on paper, is in the spotlight, as is the consistency of their batting lineup.

GT look settled. They are likely to stick with the same combinations unless they add Shahrukh Khan into the fold.

Gujarat Titans: 1. Shubman Gill (c), 2. Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 3. Sai Sudharsan, 4. Azmatullah Omarzai (OS), 5. David Miller (OS), 6. Shahrukh Khan/Vijay Shankar, 7. Rahul Tewatia, 8. Rashid Khan (OS), 9. Noor Ahmad, 10. Umesh Yadav, 11. Darshan Nalkande, 12. Mohit Sharma

Possible Impact Player Substitute: Mohit Sharma/Shahrukh Khan or Vijay Shankar

PBKS’ XI also looks relatively settled but the spotlight is on where Sam Curran bats. He performed well at number four earlier this season.

Punjab Kings: 1. Shikhar Dhawan (c), 2. Jonny Bairstow (OS), 3. Prabhsimran Singh, 4. Jitesh Sharma (wk), 5. Sam Curran (OS), 6. Liam Livingstone (OS), 7. Shashank Singh, 8. Harshal Patel, 9. Harpreet Brar, 10. Kagiso Rabada (OS), 11. Rahul Chahar, 12. Arshdeep Singh

Possible Impact Player Substitute: Prabhsimran Singh/Arshdeep Singh

Narendra Modi Stadium Ahmedabad Pitch Report and Weather

The pitch was on the slower side in the GT-SRH game on the weekend. However, that was a day game. Expect the ball to skid on better under lights.

According to ESPNcricinfo, a red-soil pitch could be used for this match as opposed to the black soil a few days ago.

A warm and mostly cloudy evening is forecast. So, there may not be a great amount of dew.
