Indian T20 League 2024 

Match 37: PUN vs GUJ 

 

Preview

Punjab(PUN) will host last year's finalist Gujarat(GUJ) in match 37 of the IND T20 League 2024 on Sunday(21st April 2024) at Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Cricket Stadium, Mullanpur. The 9th-placed northern side Punjab has played 7 matches so far in the league and just won two matches out of those played matches. On the other hand, Gujarat also does not have the best first half of the season, Shubman Gill-led side has won three matches out of 7 matches in the league competition which forced them to sit in the 8th position in the points table.

The Hosts lost their all last three matches, whereas the Visitors have won just one match in their last three encounters. It does feel like a do-or-die match when it comes to PUN and GUJ, given where they are on the points table. Teetering at the bottom, both sides will be looking to turn the table in their favour however, only one side will have the last laugh. Bouncing back from the situations to make it to qualify for the playoffs is an uphill task. PUN and GUJ have been very poor in executing their skills and have been found wanting more often than not with the ball and the bat.

Punjab and Gujarat have been able to produce the complete game, but GUJ lacks the champion mentality and the play-as-a-group character that they’ve shown in previous seasons. And, for a team that boats incredible bench strength, PUN cannot play to potential. Both sides have met each other four times so far in the IND T20 league history, and in Head-2-Head stands at 2-2 all now. Who’ll pull away and take the lead with a win this contest on Super Sunday night? That’s the big question.


Match Details

Match: PUN vs GUJ, 37th Match, Indian T20 League 2024

Date:
Sunday, April 21, 2024


Time: 
7:30 PM


Venue
: Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium, Mullanpur, Chandigarh


Pitch and Weather Report

The track at Mullanpur is not exactly batting-friendly with the scores hovering anywhere between 180 and 190. Sides have struggled to get up to a total beyond 200, and whenever they have pressed to take it over 200, they’ve lost their way in the middle and had to settle for less.

The pattern is quite evident and the toss-winning skipper has only chosen to bat second. Opting to chase- to make the most of the dewy conditions- has proved counterproductive on multiple times when the side being put in to bat first HYD and MUM defended their total successfully in the end.

The weather is expected to remain in the range of 26 to 35 degrees Celsius. The humidity is likely to be around 23% for this match day.
