Top players for Gujarat Titans vs Punjab Kings Dream 11 Match 

Top Players – Gujarat Titans 

Sai Sudharsan – The young batter from Tamil Nadu has been in good form with the bat during the IPL 2024 season. Sai Sudharsan has scored 127 runs from 3 matches with a best of 45 runs. Gujarat Titans will want the 22-year-old to score more runs for his side and keep his good form going. 

Mohit Sharma – 35-year-old veteran pacer Mohit Sharma has continued to outfox the batters with his variations. Mohit Sharma so far has picked 6 wickets from 3 games and helped the Gujarat Titans out of tight corners on many occasions. 

Top Players – Punjab Kings 

Shikhar Dhawan – India’s veteran batter has shown his amazing form with some wonderful strokes. His knock of 70 in the last game couldn’t see him through to the win. With his current form with the bat, Shikhar Dhawan is one of the best batters in IPL 2024. 

Sam Curran – A total of 86 runs with one half-century and four wickets with the ball, IPL 2024 is finally seeing Sam Curran at his best. The youngster from England has to keep going and continue to lead the Punjab Kings with the bat and ball. 

GT vs PBKS Must Picks for Dream 11 Cricket 

Shubman Gill – The 17th edition of the Indian Premier League hasn’t seen the best of GT skipper Shubman Gill. The 24-year-old will want to do well for his adopted IPL side against his home team and put up a huge score. 

Arshdeep Singh – Left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh has bowled well for Punjab Kings. His form will be crucial with the selection for the team India set to take place soon. Arshdeep Singh has been amazing with the new ball and is dependable in the death overs. 

Suggested playing XI No.1 for GT vs PBKS Dream11 Cricket Fantasy 

W Saha, J Sharma, S Gill, S Dhawan (VC), S Sudharsan, D Miller, S Curran (C), A Omarzai, S Raza, R Khan and K Rabada

GT vs PBKS Risky Captaincy Choices 

Vijay Shankar – Gujarat Titans all-rounder Vijay Shankar is finally finding his groove after starting the season slow. The 33-year-old batted well in the previous game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Shubman Gill and Ashish Nehra will want the 33-year-old to pile on the runs that he is known for. 

Jonny Bairstow – England’s veteran star Jonny Bairstow has been pretty quiet with the bat so far. He showed his batting prowess during the game against Lucknow Super Giants. Punjab Kings know the value Bairstow has with the bat and what a match-winner he can be. 

Players you should avoid 

Umesh Yadav – One of the biggest problems that Gujarat Titans have is that Umesh Yadav has been inconsistent. The 36-year-old has struggled to pick wickets with the needed consistency at this level of the game. 

Harshal Patel – Currently out of the Indian team, Harshal Patel needs to rediscover his best bowling form. The 33-year-old has not only struggled to pick wickets but has also been expensive with the ball.
