Top picks for PBKS vs GT Dream11 match:

Top picks – drummers

In the first match against LSG, Shubman Gill was dismissed for a duck in the very first over of the game. He came back with a stronger force in Game 2 and showed why he is considered India’s next big thing in cricket. Against DC, Gill made 84 runs on 46 deliveries which consisted of 6 fours and 4 sixes.

Shikhar Dhawan played a key role in both PBKS wins in the tournament. In his first game for the franchise, Dhawan made 43 out of 29 deliveries. In the previous game against CSK, he scored 33 out of 24 deliveries.

Top picks – Versatile

Liam Livingstone was at his best in the previous match against CSK where he won the player of the match award for his overall performance. With the bat, he made 60 runs on just 32 deliveries and hit 5 fours and 5 sixes. With the ball he picked 2 wickets from 3 overs and gave up only 25 runs.

Hardik Pandya scored points while flying at number 4 for GT. He’s had 4 overs in both games and looks in fine form. Pandya could play a key role for his team in this game.

Top picks – Bowlers

Mohammad Shami won the Player of the Match award in his first game for GT. He chose 3 wickets in 4 overs and only gave up 25 runs. In the second game, Shami chose 2 wickets for 30 runs in 2 overs.

Kagiso Rabada went 3 overs in the two games he played in and picked two wickets. Rabada could play a key role for the team in this game with the ball.

Top picks – Wicket keeper

Jonny Bairstow could make his long-awaited debut for PBKS in this game. The arrival of the right-handed hitter will surely strengthen the batting unit of PBKS. The franchise would expect Bairstow to bring the same level of destruction that his compatriot Jos Buttler brought to the Rajasthan Royals.

PBKS vs. GT Risky Captaincy Picks:

Jitesh Sharma made his debut for the Punjab Kings in the previous match against CSK. He made 26 carries on just 17 deliveries and hit 3 sixes against the defending champions. It could be risky to choose him as your team captain.

Abhinav Manohar finished the game against LSG with Rahul Tewatia. Manohar made 14 runs from 8 deliveries in this game.

Player to avoid:

Vijay Shankar was at number 3 for GT and only managed to collect 1 limit in 2 games. He looks completely disconnected and you can avoid him in your fantasy team for this game.
