Punjab Kings will be taking on Gujarat Titans in the second game of Sunday's (April 21) doubleheader. The PBKS vs GT match is being played at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium, Mullanpur, Chandigarh.

After suffering three last-over losses in their last three games at home, PBKS will be desperate for a win tonight. The game against GT will be their final game at the venue this season as they will be playing their remaining two home games in Dharamsala.

With just two wins from seven games so far, PBKS cannot afford further slip-ups if they want to make it to the playoffs for the first time since 2014. Their top-order's poor run in IPL 2024 is one of the key reasons behind the struggle. PBKS will be hoping that their top-order finally delivers tonight and they end their losing streak.

PBKS have already defeated GT once this season and will be eyeing a repeat tonight. GT, on the other hand, will be looking to avenge the loss and bring their campaign back on track. Under new captain Shubman Gill, GT have been very inconsistent so far, managing to win just three of their first seven games.

PBKS vs GT: Impact players:

PBKS have won the toss and opted to bat first. Speaking at the toss, PBKS captain Sam Curran said: "We are gonna bat first. Third time we have used this pitch, excited to put pressure on the Gujarat bowlers first up and put a good score on the board. Any team can beat anyone. We know if we turn up with right plans and attitude we can win. It's baout overseas players taking more responsibility and helping the Indian players. Shikhar is still not alright, same team."

GT skipper Shubman Gill said: "I would have bowled first anyway, looks like it's the same wicket as the last match here. Every game becomes important for us. We have had some niggles (on not being able to settle into a combination). This game Omarzai is back, he had a niggle earlier. He comes in place of Spencer. If we can keep them to around 170 we will be happy."
