In the match 64 of the Indian Premier League 2023, set to be played at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala, Punjab Kings will go head-to-head against Delhi Capitals. They played against each other in their previous encounter last weekend, which was won handsomely by PBKS against DC with a margin of 31 runs. In their upcoming fixture, the Kings desperately need a win to stay in contention for an IPL playoffs spot, so you can expect them to be on their game against the Capitals in Dharamshala.
Prabhsimran Singh put together one of the best hundreds in the IPL 2023 season in the previous fixture for Punjab Kings against Delhi Capitals, when other experienced batters in the team struggled on a tough pitch in Delhi. In their recent round of matches, the PBKS batting lineup has gotten decent totals on the board with contributions from the likes of captain Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, and Jitesh Sharma, in particular. As far as the bowling attack for Punjab goes, Nathan Ellis, Harpreet Brar, and Rahul Chahar have been very impressive for the team in the last few games.
David Warner, the captain of Delhi Capitals, has been scoring runs at a high tempo in the last couple of games, but he has lacked support from other experienced batters in the team. DC have tried various players in their middle order, including the likes of Riley Rossouw, Manish Pandey, and Sarfaraz Khan, but they all have struggled to be consistent scorers for the team. In their bowling department, Delhi have been reasonably decent with their performances as Ishant Sharma and Kuldeep Yadav, stepped up for the captain in tough situations.

Delhi Capitals: David Warner (c), Phil Salt (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Riley Rossouw, Manish Pandey, Axar Patel, Praveen Dubey, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mukesh Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed (Potential Impact Substitute - Aman Khan for Ishant Sharma)
