PBKS vs DC Dream11 Tips for Match 29 IPL 2021 Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals Today Match Prediction 2 May


PBKS vs DC Dream11: It’s time for Northern Derby in IPL 2021 where Punjab Kings will be up against Delhi Capitals at Ahmedabad. For Punjab Kings, the tournament has been mixed so far with 3 wins and 4 losses. They have some problems to address but gained huge confidence by defeating an in-form RCB side in their last match. KL Rahul has been consistent as usual and has carried the team throughout the innings. Pooran’s form will be a concern which makes middle order slightly weaker. Ravi Bishnoi has been excellent with his googlies while there will be more expectations from Harpreet Brar.

Delhi Capitals, meanwhile, look confident and ruthless. Their openers have done the bulk of the job in batting with Shaw and Dhawan both in fine form. There will be focus on Steve Smith and his role in the team. Hetmyer has been in excellent hitting form and has been dangerous at the slog overs. Rabada’s form will be a concern for DC as the spearhead has only 5 wickets in 6 matches at a high economy of 8.72.
