Previous clash between Punjab and Mumbai was an unfortunate event for punjab as they lost after scoring a 198,Mumbai’s Patel,Jos Buttler and Rana chased to that score in just 15 overs.
Top order of Punjab from Hasim Amla,Marsh,Saha,maxwell,Stonis and Patel where Amal,Vorha are consistent players of the team.
Gujarat is despirate to see Jadeja in form where as Bowlers like Praveen Kumar,Faulkner,Basil Thampi,raina even picked 1 wicket,Kulkarni and Smith are struggling as they didn’t performed so well,just created overburden on batsman.
Same goes with Punjab being strong from batting however they are struggling from bowling point as their duo Mohit and sandeep sahara, from previous 6 sessions are not in their form.
What about Pitch ?
Ravindra Jadega had scored their triple hundreds on this ground better for Gujarat,Wicket of Saurashtra is batsmen friendly.Bowlers will play a very important role as they would have to stop their opponents in scoring high runs.

Team who will score more runs will win today though Probably Gujarat would win at Saurashtra today. Best of Luck to Punjab.
