Plywood to plasterboard

I would like to clad out under my stairs as it is quite dusty. Its not an open area, just a full size door at the end & its only used for storage - mop & bucket, ironing board, etc.

The flooring is rough sand/cement & the walls have been plasterboarded (but no skim & the joints are to wide for me to simply paint over.
It all seems dry.

I was thinking of either getting some T&G but cant really be bothered to deal with the hassle of battening.

Or alternative to get some cheap 3 or 5mm ply & stick that to the plasterboard.

Is this feasible?
or would I need to do something else.

I would like to use the area to put in a wine rack for storage so would like it to be clean with a wood finish.
