Here are 3 Players Battles To Watch Out For In DC vs PBKS IPL 2021.

DC vs PBKS IPL Match: Decisive Player Battles

1. Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan vs Mohammed Shami: DC’s openers are arguably two of the most destructive batsmen in the IPL 2021. The duo took the game away from CSK in the opening match despite MS Dhoni’s team posting a formidable total of 188 runs. Mohammed Shami will have to be on the top of his game if PBKS are to get the better of Dhawan and Shaw.

Rishabh Pant vs Arshdeep Singh: With bowlers such as Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith on the PBKS roster, you may think Rishabh Pant will be thinking more about the duo than wasting a moment or two on Arshdeep Singh.

IPL 2021: DC vs PBKS Dream11

Delhi Capitals had the game in control against Rajasthan Royals but a late blitz from Chris Morris sent Rishabh Pant and his team crashing down into the pothole. PBKS also met the same fate in their last outing meaning both teams will come into this off the back of a defeat. But DC, at least on paper, look in better shape and we back them to win this DC vs PBKS IPL 2021 match.
