The 29th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League will take place between two strong teams – Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Delhi Capitals (DC) at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Both the teams have won their last games. With five wins from seven matches, Delhi are currently placed second whereas Punjab are at fifth place in the points table with three wins from seven games.
Punjab made changes in their squad in the last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore where they added Harpreet Brar. He simply changed the fate of the game by removing three key players – Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers. Before his stunning spell, KL Rahul had led from the front with the bat with an unbeaten 57-ball 91.
However, he found great support in Chris Gayle, who smashed a quickfire 46. But their bowling unit consisting of Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan and Riley Meredith needs to step up as it failed to do well in the death overs. Harshal Patel smacked 31 off 13 balls in the last game against them.
On the other hand, Delhi are a more balanced side now with both batting and bowling unit performing well. In their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders, in-form opener Prithvi Shaw literally punished the opponent bowlers. Scoring with a strike of 200, he single-handedly laid the winning foundation in the game.
Apart from him, Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant too are in great form. As far as the bowling side is concerned, Avesh Khan has made a name in the ongoing league with his amazing skill. Alongside him, Axar Patel and Kagiso Rabada too will be there to trouble the opponent as well. Considering the current form, Delhi Capitals might win the game against Punjab Kings.
