Match 47 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 will happen between new team Gujarat Titans (GT) against Punjab Kings (PBKS). It will take place at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Tuesday. As GT is looking to seal its playoffs berth, it will target a great outing against PBKS, here is the hottest Fantasy XI picks, preview, prediction and more.

Current form
GT is placed atop the table, with eight wins from nine games and a loss, while it won its last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by six wickets. As for PBKS, it has won four from nine and lost five, while in its previous game, it lost to new side Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by 20 runs.


Teams strengths-weaknesses and players to watch
GT remains strong with the ball and is its strength. However, its talented batting line-up cannot be ignored, especially the finishers. Shubman Gill, David Miller, Hardik Pandya, Matthew Wade, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami and Lockie Ferguson are looking to rock.

Meanwhile, PBKS is bowling-heavy and strong in the department. On the other hand, its batting happens to be star-studded and is certainly not weak. Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Jonny Bairstow, Kagiso Rabada and Rahul Chahar are the ones who could rule.
