Gujarat Titans have won both their matches so far this season.
Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans will battle it out in the 16th match of IPL 2022 on Friday. Gujarat Titans won their previous match against Delhi Capitals, and are currently placed fourth in the table with 2 wins in as many matches. The new franchise has got off to a perfect start and will be looking to continue its form. On the other hand, Punjab Kings came back to beat Chennai Super Kings in their previous match and are fifth in the points table. They are playing an aggressive brand of cricket which has reaped rewards. This promises to be an exciting match
Here are 3 players you can avoid in your fantasy teams for the PBKS vs GT game:
1. Shahrukh Khan
He has had a bad start to this season and although he was unbeaten in the opening match he still faced only 20 balls and managed to score 24. The batting line-up of Punjab Kings is solid and they have multiple established players which makes it tougher for Shahrukh to get enough balls to make an impact from the fantasy point of view. There are also many better alternatives present in the batting section. Hence, you may avoid him for this match.
2. Varun Aaron
Varun Aaron has struggled for consistency and was wayward in both the matches he has played thus far. Another thing that makes his fantasy value lesser is that he might not bowl his full quota of overs and even if he does it is looking highly unlikely that they will give him the ball at the death where wickets generally fall in heaps. It is better to ignore him against this opposition.
3. Abhinav Manohar
He played a cameo in the opening match but once again this is his first season at the IPL. He is pretty much an unknown quantity. Another thing to consider is his batting position. He was sent at No.7 in the opening match and if that continues he would not get much balls to have an impact on the fantasy team. So, with plenty of alternatives available it is better to leave him.
