Preview:

Punjab and Delhi will lock horns on Monday at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai. This will be a high-stakes game as the one winning this match will still have the possibility of reaching 16 points. However, the team that loses this game will only be able to reach a maximum of 14 points, implying other results should go in their way for their qualification equation. For now, both teams are on 12 points with 6 wins and 6 defeats but Delhi are ranked above Punjab due to a better net run rate. In the team’s previous encounter earlier in the season, Delhi had registered a dominant victory.

Analysis:

With both teams having a 50 per cent winning rate, there have been some good individual performances from players from both teams. Shikhar Dhawan and Liam Livingstone have been the highest run-scorers for Punjab. In recent matches, even Jonny Bairstow has made his utility felt ever since he has been promoted as an opener. Bhanuka Rajapaksa could be another interesting addition to the Fantasy side.

For Delhi, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh are more or less automated picks in the Fantasy team at the stage. Rishabh Pant might also walk into the team as a wicketkeeping option although his form with the bat hasn’t been top-notch. Rovman Powell with his dangerous striking ability can be considered. Other high utility options include Kuldeep Yadav- the team’s highest wicket-taker so far, Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel.

From Punjab the bowling options include Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar and Arshdeep Singh who have been the most successful of the lot. Other smart picks could be Rishi Dhawan and Harpreet Brar.
