Apr 21, 2024 10:20 AM IST

PBKS and GT will be aiming to keep themselves alive in the race to the playoffs when they lock horns in Chandigarh

In a season ruled by batters, where 250 is the new 200, Gujarat Titans and Punjab Kings have struggled immensely with the bat. While the 2022 champions have been scoring at just 7.44 runs per over in the seven matches they have played so far, the worst among all 10 franchises, Punjab's scoring rate of 8.4 runs per over is eighth in the list. Both the team have lacked the support from the top-order, with Shubman Gill (2) and Shikhar Dhawan (1) being the lone half-centurions for the two sides.
