Punjab Kings are playing against Delhi Capitals in an IPL match. Punjab Kings have had a mixed season with six losses and as many wins. They need to win this match to have a chance of making the playoffs. Their net run rate is not great, so they need to win by a big margin. Delhi Capitals are already out of the playoffs and will play for pride.
Punjab Kings’ batting needs to improve. Apart from Shikhar Dhawan and Prabhsimran Singh, no one has scored enough runs. Their bowlers, including Nathan Ellis, Sam Curran, and Arshdeep Singh, need to perform better too. Delhi Capitals have struggled with their batting this season, with their Indian players not performing well. Their overseas players, David Warner, Phil Salt, and Mitchell Marsh, have done better, but the middle order has crumbled after they’re gone.
Delhi Capitals’ bowlers have been better than their batsmen. Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, and the spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel have bowled well. Anrich Nortje might return to the team for this match.
The match starts at 7:30 pm IST.
