Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals Team Previews

Punjab Kings (Match Odds – 1.94)

Mayank Agarwal’s team kept their hopes of advancing to the next round alive with a 54-run victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore. Their batsmen performed admirably in the previous game. However, a loss here would put an end to their chances of making the playoffs. Agarwal anticipates a determined effort from his players as they compete for a spot in the tournament.

Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow are a formidable opening pair who will look to form a productive partnership. The middle order has been inconsistent throughout the season and would welcome Liam Livingstone’s return to form. He needs to work with Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Agarwal. Jitesh Sharma, Harpreet Brar, and Rishi Dhawan add depth to the side, but they must live up to the challenge.

Arshdeep Singh has been impressive, and he will look to bowl tight spells with Harpreet Brar sharing the new ball. Kagiso Rabada has shown his class in recent games, and he must deliver if the team is to win. Rahul Chahar has been unimpressive and has allowed batsmen to score easy runs. Along with Rishi Dhawan, he will play an important role in the middle overs.

Punjab Kings Squad

Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Bhanuka Rajapaksa (wk), Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Raj Bawa, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar, Sandeep Sharma, Rahul Chahar, Prabhsimran Singh, Rishi Dhawan, Benny Howell, Ishan Porel, Vaibhav Arora, Ansh Patel, Atharva Taide, Prerak Mankad, Jitesh Sharma, Kagiso Rabada, Writtick Chatterjee, Baltej Singh

Predicted XI: Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Harpreet Brar, Arshdeep Singh

Delhi Capitals (Match Odds – 1.84)

It was exactly the kind of performance Rishabh Pant’s team needed. They won their last game by an 8-wicket margin against the Rajasthan Royals, propelling them to fifth place on the points table. It was an impressive performance with the bat from the side. They defeated the Punjab Kings earlier in the season and will be buoyed by that victory. However, the team has yet to win two consecutive games this season, and they will look to avoid that here.

Srikar Bharat must perform well in this game, and he must assist David Warner in opening the batting, as Warner appears to be in good form. Mitchell Marsh overcame his poor form to play a match-winning knock against Rajasthan, which boosted his confidence. Rishab Pant and Lalit Yadav strengthen the middle order, and they have good hitters in Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur to follow.

Anrich Nortje must find his form and bowl well early in the game against Chetan Sakariya, who comes here after a strong performance. Kuldeep Yadav’s form has been consistent, and the team expects him to trouble Punjab’s strong batting line-up. Marsh, Axar Patel, and Thakur will have important roles to play because their opponents have shown good batting form.

Delhi Capitals Squad

Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje, David Warner, Mitch Marsh, Shardul Thakur, Mustafizur Rahman, Kuldeep Yadav, Ashwin Hebbar, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, KS Bharat, Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Syed Khaleel Ahmed, Chetan Sakariya, Lalit Yadav, Ripal Patel, Yash Dhull, Rovman Powell, Pravin Dubey, Lungi Ngidi, Tim Seifert, Vicky Ostwal

Predicted XI: Rishabh Pant (c & wk), David Warner, Srikar Bharat, Mitchell Marsh, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Chetan Sakariya, Anrich Nortje

Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals Toss Prediction

Successful run chases have occurred at this venue, making it extremely difficult for the side batting first to set a score. Early in the game, there is some juice on the surface that helps bowlers. As a result, whoever wins the toss here will have no hesitation in inviting the opposition to bat first.

To Win the Toss – Punjab Kings – 1.85

To Win the Toss – Delhi Capitals – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy is a small facility with a good batting surface. The batsmen benefit from the fast outfield as well, as they can play on the up and score runs here. It is one of the most difficult venues for fast bowlers because there is nothing for them on this surface. Spinners excel because the dry wicket causes the ball to grip and turn sharply.

We anticipate warm weather on May 16, though there may be some unusual clouds in the sky. The wicket has been flat, making it difficult for bowlers who can’t afford to bowl loose balls. To put pressure on the opponent, the team batting first would need to score 180 runs.

Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals Match Prediction

Both teams will be under pressure as they enter this game, and neither can afford to lose. Punjab Kings have struggled with their bowling attack as well as the form of their middle order. To win this game, they must work together as a team. The Delhi Capitals have dominated the Kings in recent seasons, which will boost their confidence. They have a better bowling attack, and we think the Delhi Capitals will win.

Delhi Capitals is the favourite to beat Punjab Kings at the odds of 1.84.

  • In the last seven games, Delhi Capitals have defeated PBKS five times, including one earlier this season.
  • David Warner has scored 427 runs for the Delhi Capitals in just ten games, and he is leading the team to victory.
  • The middle order of PBKS has been inconsistent, and the team has paid a high price for it.
