PBKS vs DC Playing 11: Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals will face off in the first reverse fixture of this year’s IPL here on Sunday. Delhi have been a dominant team and sit comfortably in the points table. Meanwhile, Punjab have had a mixed season but a win over RCB in the last game would have lifted their spirits. In 27 matches played between these sides, Punjab lead Delhi 15:12. In the previous fixture played between these teams earlier this season, Delhi emerged as winners. With Delhi in some fine form, it will be tough for Punjab to stop them.
