Punjab Kings won the toss and elected to bat first. Their decision set the stage for an exciting encounter.

“We are going to bat first. Looking to put some good runs on the board. Our record here has not been the best. This is the third time we are using this pitch. We will try to put pressure on the Gujarat Titans’ bowling attack. That’s the nature of IPL.
It’s such a big tournament; on a given day, anyone can win against any side. Absolutely. We know if we turn up with the right plans and attitude, we can win. It’s about overseas players taking more responsibility and helping the Indian players. Shikhar Dhawan is still not playing. We have the same team as the last game.”

Sam Curran, PBKS Skipper

“I was looking to bowl first. Looks like it’s the same wicket as the last match (PBKS vs MI). Every game is important from now on. We’ve been inconsistent so far.
We are keen to put on our best performances. We would look to keep them under 170. Just one change – Azmatullah Omarzai replaces Spencer Johnson (niggle).”
