Pitch Report: PBKS Vs GT: Match 16
Pitch Report: A relatively high-scoring game beckons with there being little help on offer for the bowlers. The batters will look to attack from the start despite there being some swing on offer for the pacers. The spinners will have to be clever with their lines and lengths to make the most out of the pitch. Wickets in hand will be key, with both teams likely to prefer batting first upon winning the toss
Head to Head Stats:
Both the teams are playing for the first time against each other as Gujarat is a newcomer this season.
There is no injury news till now from both teams.
