PBKS vs DC IPL today match prediction: Punjab Kings have beaten their favorite opposition in RCB in their last outing and will be up against Delhi Capitals who are winning in spite of making some selection blunders.

Punjab Kings brought in Riley Meredith against RCB and he was mighty impressive with the new ball but he might have to miss this game as he was injured towards the end of the game against RCB. Delhi Capitals have task cut out against an in-form KL Rahul and DC’s spearhead is bowling terribly at the moment. The Ahmedabad wicket has played well so far and DC would need their strike bowler to come good against a strong batting lineup.

PBKS vs DC IPL today match prediction

Punjab Kings

+ Chris Gayle was seen at his aggressive best and PK might play him as an opener if Mayank Agarwal is absent for one more time.

+ Ravi Bishnoi has been a revelation so far for PBKS.

– KL Rahul’s approach in the previous game clicked and he might continue to play the same way which might favor DC

– Shahrukh Khan is highly susceptible versus spin and Nicholas Pooran’s bad form means their lower middle order is exposed to spin sooner rather than later.

Delhi Capitals

+ Lalit Yadav stepped up big time with the ball and bowled with great control.

+ Avesh Khan has been carrying DC’s fast bowling attack on his shoulders in this season.

– As mentioned earlier, the form of Kagiso Rabada with the ball is a massively worrying factor.

– They continue to play Steve Smith in their XI

PBKS playing 11 (Likely)

KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Dawid Malan, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Shahrukh Khan, Harpreet Brar, Chris Jordan, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh

DC playing 11 (Likely)

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shimron Hetmyer, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Steve Smith, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan

Who will win today match

Delhi Capitals will start the game as favorites only because of the starts that their openers are giving them consistently. Delhi decimated Punjab in their previous outing this season with Prithvi Shaw breaking the game inside powerplay chasing a big target. All Punjab Kings need to do is to dismiss Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan early in the innings and 2 points are there for the taking.
