Betting Tips

  • KL Rahul continues to play a different game to his team-mates and made an unbeaten 57-ball 91 in the win against RCB. He now has 331 runs in the tournament and is in pole position to retain the Orange Cap at the end of the season. With the ball, left-arm orthodox bowler Harpreet Brar took 3-19 in his first appearance of the season against RCB.
  • Shikhar Dhawan is only 20 runs behind KL Rahul and will be looking to add to his 2 half-centuries in the tournament. Prithvi Shaw (269) and captain Rishabh Pant (199) have also made significant contributions with the bat. Avesh Khan leads the charge with the ball, he has 13 wickets and is second only to Harshal Patel across the 2021 IPL.
  • The Delhi Capitals openers have hit 71 fours between them and no other team has two players in the top five run makers. Avesh Khan has the best bowling average for any player who has played every game so far in the tournament.

PBKS vs DC T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2021

5th placed Punjab Kings take on 2nd placed Delhi Capitals in Sunday evening’s fixture in Ahmedabad. Kings come into the game on the back of a surprise 34-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi saw off KKR by 7 wickets on Thursday. Read on as we preview this clash of the 2021 IPL. The match will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium and will get underway at 19:30 local time.

Punjab Kings’ confidence will be at an all-time high in this tournament after recording big wins against RCB and Mumbai Indians in their last three games. With KL Rahul’s batting form showing no signs of tailing off, they are a threat for any team on their day.

Delhi Capitals won this fixture earlier in the campaign, Shikhar Dhawan making 92 in a 6-wicket win in Mumbai. Against KKR they looked back to their best, wrapping up the victory with 21 balls to spare.

Punjab Kings Team News & Playing 11

PBKS Team News

KL Rahul made three changes to his side ahead of the win over RCB. Moises Henriques, Arshdeep Singh and Mayank Agarwal missed out with Prabhsimran Singh, Harpreet Brar and Riley Meredith coming in. You would think they would now stick with this side which would mean Dawid Malan continuing to be absent. 

PBKS Key Players

  • KL Rahul - he has a remarkable record in this IPL 2021 of hitting a big score in every other innings. 91, 5, 61, 4, 60*, 19, 91* although it looks like even his small scores are also getting larger!
  • Ravi Bishnoi - Harpreet Brar got the player of the match against RCB but Bishnoi’s figures of 2-17 from 4 overs were just as crucial. He enjoys bowling on the spin friendly surface in Ahmedabad.
  • Mohammad Shami - Mr Consistent continues to deliver. He has 8 wickets from 7 games so far this year and a strong second half of the competition could see him outdo his 20 wickets in 2020.

PBKS Team Form

Although they haven’t strung back to back wins together yet, Punjab are well placed to target the fourth play-off spot. Consecutive wins against RCB and Delhi would be a statement.

Delhi Capitals Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Lalit Yadav replaced Amit Mishra in Delhi’s win over KKR and he responded with figures of 2-13 from 3 overs. Kagiso Rabada continues to not be the threat he was in last year’s tournament but retains the trust of captain and coach.

DC Key Players

  • Prithvi Shaw - it’s funny to say that someone who has already hit 3 half-centuries in the tournament had gone under the radar, but that’s exactly what Shaw has done. His 82 from 41 against KKR has put him into the spotlight.
  • Shikhar Dhawan - the left-handed opener has effortlessly made 311 runs so far and will relish the opportunity to go head to head with KL Rahul in this fixture.
  • Rishabh Pant - his confidence knows no bounds and after putting himself forward to face the first ball in the Super Over he leapt above Steve Smith in the batting line-up against KKR. He will make a very big score very soon.

DC Team Form

After a win in the Super Over and a 1-run defeat to RCB, Delhi showed they are back to their swaggering best with the big win over KKR. Two defeats in seven games is excellent form.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan

We are backing Mohammad Shami, Chris Jordan and Ravi Bishnoi to cause problems for the Delhi Capitals batsmen. Bishnoi has been very impressive since his recall.

For Delhi Capitals we have gone with Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan and Axar Patel. A player of Rabada’s quality who retains the trust of Ricky Ponting and RIshabh Pant will come good.

Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals Prediction

Punjab Kings can never be taken lightly when they have a player of KL Rahul’s ability at the top of the order. Defeating RCB will have raised eyebrows across the globe and doing the same to Delhi Capitals will make everyone take notice. However, we think Rishabh Pant’s side have too much quality and focus to be knocked off course in this game.

Final Verdict

Delhi Capitals are favorites to win against Punjab Kings at odds of 1.72

PBKS vs DC Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    KL Rahul (10.5) and Rishabh Pant (10) will be our wicket-keepers. Differing styles but both very effective with the bat
