Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals Preview

With IPL playoffs nearing, the race to the top 4 has intensified. Both DC and PBKS are still in the haunt to reach the top 4, however, a loss in the coming game will quash all hopes of qualification for them. Both teams have 12 points on the table and need to win both their remaining games to qualify on their own.

PBKS

Team News

Punjab have been very inconsistent this season. They have failed to win back to back games which has not given them any momentum. However, they have looked a much more stable team in the last few games. They crushed Bangalore in the last game and are likely to play the same team.

Top Order

Jonny Bairstow and Shikhar Dhawan form a formidable opening pair, which will be followed by Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Bairstow played a brilliant knock of 66 in the last game and has looked good in recent games. Dhawan has also been in good form this season, delivering consistently. Rajapaksa has also been quite handy for PBKS.

Middle Order

Liam Livingstone, Mayank Agarwal and Jitesh Sharma will comprise a strong middle order. Livingstone has been destructive for Punjab in the middle overs, while Sharma has been very impressive as well. Mayank though needs to get back to form and lead his team to the playoffs.

All-rounders

Lack of all-rounders has hurt Punjab this season and their batting depth has been compromised due to the same.

Bowlers

Kagiso Rabada, Harpreet Brar, Rishi Dhawan and Rahul Chahar will be the bowlers. Rabada has been terrific for Punjab this season. Other bowlers, however, will have to raise their game.

PBKS Key Batters

  • Jonny Bairstow - Bairstow was a flop in the first few games but has picked up some form in the last few games. He scored a blazing 66 of 29 in the last game.
  • Liam Livingstone - Liam Livingstone has been outstanding for Punjab so far. He endured a poor run in the middle phase but has bounced back strongly. So far, he has scored 385 runs in the tournament, including a 70 in the last game.
  • Mayank Agarwal - Mayank Agarwal has been disappointing but one cannot count him out in such a crunch game.

PBKS Top Batsman Stats

Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Mayank Agarwal 111 2330 23.07 134.92 12/1
Liam Livingstone 21 497 26.16 164.57 4/0
Jonny Bairtsow 37 1240 36.47 147.71 9/1

PBKS Key Bowlers

  • Kagiso Rabada - Rabada has been simply outstanding for the Punjab Kings. He is the third-highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 21 scalps.
  • Rahul Chahar - The wickets are getting slow and Rahul Chahar has become a key player in the team. Punjab will have big hopes from him.
  • Arshdeep Singh - Singh hasn't taken many wickets but he has created a lot of pressure on opposition batters by bowling economical overs. He will also be key to Punjab's chances.

Delhi Capitals

Team News

Prithvi Shaw has recovered from Typhoid and was discharged from the hospital. However, it's unlikely that he will play the next game.

Top Order

Srikar Bharat is likely to open alongside David Warner. The team has missed Shaw and even though he has recovered from the illness, he is unlikely to play the coming game. Warner, however, has been in sizzling form for Delhi.

Middle Order

Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant and Lalit Yadav will follow the openers. Marsh smoked 89 off 62 in the last game. He has looked good in the last few games. Yadav and Pant, however, need to start performing consistently.

All-rounders

In Rovman Powell, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur, Delhi have a plethora of all-rounders. While Powell and Axar have been good. Shardul has been ordinary.

Bowlers

Delhi have one of the best bowling lineups in the tournament, with Anrich Nortje, and Kuldeep Yadav to accompany the all-rounders.

DC Key Batters

  • David Warner - Warner has been simply outstanding in the tournament. He has scored 427 runs in 10 games at an average of 61. A good knock from Warner can help Delhi post a big score.
  • Mitchell Marsh - Marsh has looked really good in the last few games. He has come in and played some attacking innings. He scored 89 in the last game.
  • Rishabh Pant - Pant has been ordinary this season but there is no denying the fact that he is a game-changer on his day.

DC Top Batsman Stats

Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Mitchell Marsh 27 413 21.74 122.56 1/0
David Warner 160 5876 42.58 140.81 55/4
Rishabh Pant 96 2792 34.90 148.35 15/1

DC Key Bowlers

  • Kuldeep Yadav - Yadav has been the biggest match-winner for Delhi this season with the ball. He has taken 18 wickets in 12 games and with surface aiding the spinners, he will be key for the team.
  • Anrich Nortje - Anrich Nortje has blown hot and cold so far. He has bowled a couple of fiery spells but has been generally inconsistent. He will have to bring out his A-game in the next game.
  • Axar Patel - Patel has been a very underrated bowler. He has bowled with a great economy but hasn't taken a lot of wickets. He can also play a big role in Delhi's run to playoffs.

DC Top Bowlers Stats

Bowlers Matches Wickets Average Economy Best Figures
Axar Patel 120 99 30.74 7.27 4/21
Anrich Nortje 28 40 21.25 8.04 3/33
