Gujarat Titans (GT) will be up against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Match 17 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The two are scheduled to clash at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Thursday, April 4 at 7:30 PM (IST). Both teams have played three matches so far, but GT won two of them while PBKS managed to win only one.

The 2022 champions opened their campaign with a six-run win over Mumbai Indians (MI). They lost their second match to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) but bounced back in their last match against the powerful Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). On the other hand, Punjab, who are yet to win a title, have won their first match against Delhi Capitals (DC) but suffered two successive defeats.

Titans have an excellent record at their home ground and will aim to continue their dominance by upsetting Shikhar Dhawan and Co. Shubman Gill hasn’t scored a single fifty this season, but he is the leading run-scorer in the GT vs PBKS rivalry and will be expected to lead the charge in the upcoming match. Sai Sudarshan has been impressive so far, while David Miller and Mohit Sharma regained their form in the last match against SRH.
