Team PreviewPunjab Kings

Punjab Kings
Punjab Kings

Punjab kings made a brilliant comeback in their previous game of the tournament against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The KL Rahul-led side clinched a 34-run victory that helped them climb up to number five in the Points Table. PBKS currently have three wins against their name in seven matches. They made several changes during that clash that paid dividends to them. However, Mayank Agarwal will make a comeback if he’s fit and Dawid Malan is also expected to play after multiple failures for Nicholas Pooran.

Delhi Capitals have continued with their form from where they left in the previous season. The Rishabh Pant-led side currently holds the second position in the Points Table with five wins out of seven matches. DC openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw undoubtedly form the best opening pair of the tournament as both of them are in the dream run. The Delhi-based franchise registered a clinical victory in their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Youngster Lalit Yadav played in place of Amit Mishra and did reasonably well against KKR and is expected to play here as well.
