Preview

Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals will take on each other in the Northern derby at the DY Patil Stadium on Monday evening (16 May). Both teams are desperate for a win to bolster their qualification chances. Both Punjab and Delhi have 12 points from 12 games, but DC are ahead in terms of net run rate. Now, with two league games left for both teams, it is going to be interesting to see which team makes the cut.

Pitch Report

The DY Patil Stadium pitch has been easier to bat on and it is expected to remain the same way for the match between Delhi and Punjab. In bowling, spinners have been economical but pacers have averaged better at this venue.

Team Analysis

Punjab Kings

The Mayank Agarwal-led side put on a dominating show against RCB in their last game. Punjab were clinical in both departments on the day and will like to replicate that performance against Delhi. Both English batters in the PBKS camp, Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone lit up the field with their fiery batting. In bowling, Kagiso Rabada stepped up as he bagged three wickets. Rishi Dhawan and Rahul Chahar also chipped in. So, there are no changes expected from the last eleven.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi also registered a thumping win over Rajasthan in their last game. David Warner and Mitchell Marsh put on a show as they notched up a century partnership. Marsh was the star for DC with his all-round performance. Now, with a Playoff berth at stake, DC will hope to crush Punjab in a similar way. Prithvi Shaw has joined the DC camp but there is no certainty about him playing against Punjab. If he is deemed fit to play, Srikar Bharat will walk out. Otherwise, DC won’t tinker with a winning combination.
