GT vs PBKS 2024: Punjab Kings’ Secret Weapon On The Bench? Will Dhawan Give Him A Chance? The 17th match of IPL 2024 is here, with Gujarat Titans taking on Punjab Kings. Punjab hasn’t quite found their rhythm yet, sitting at 2 wins and 1 loss. They need to string some victories together, but there’s a surprise on their bench!

They Have A Dangerous Player Who Hasn’t Seen The Field Yet:-

This player is none other than Zimbabwean star all-rounder Sikandar Raza. Raza recently grabbed a hat-trick in a T20 International and boasts a stellar T20 record.

Why is That?

  • Four Foreigner Rule: Punjab already has established stars like Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, and Kagiso Rabada in their playing XI.
  • Bairstow’s Form: Apart from the last match, Bairstow hasn’t been in the best touch.
  • Raza’s Versatility: Raza can be an opener, middle-order batsman, finisher, and a handy spin bowler!

But Punjab desperately needs a win against Gujarat. Will Dhawan give Raza a chance?

Here’s A Look At Raza’s Stats:

  • 139 runs and 3 wickets in 7 matches last IPL season.
  • 1854 runs and 58 wickets in 81 T20 Internationals.
  • 4625 runs and 133 wickets in 225 T20 matches overall.
