Punjab Kings will play against Delhi Capitals in match 64 of the Indian Premier League 2023 at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala. The hosts, PBKS will arrive at their adopted home on the back of a comfortable win against DC by 31 runs in Delhi.

In this year’s IPL, Punjab Kings have won only three out of 12 tosses, while Delhi Capitals have won seven out of 12 tosses thus far. The previous fixture between both these teams, which happened last weekend, saw DC come out on top in the battle of toss. So, in Dharamshala, the toss might favour Delhi more in comparison to Punjab.
PBKS are 16-15 ahead on head-to-head record against DC in the IPL. But in their last seven battles in the league from 2020, Delhi have managed to defeat Punjab five times. But in their previous match in IPL 2023, Punjab Kings managed to achieve an easy victory against Delhi Capitals. Hence, the Kings will be confident to put away the Capitals one more time this season.
