The Delhi Capitals are set to take on the Punjab Kings in match number 59 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium. Both teams are currently at the lower half of the points table with PBKS in eighth place with 10 points from 11 matches, while DC is at the bottom of the table with 8 points from 11 matches. This match is a must-win for both teams, with just three more games remaining in the season.
The Stakes are High
A defeat for the Delhi Capitals would mean the end of their season, and even if they win their remaining games, it might not be enough to make it to the playoffs. For PBKS, the situation is not as dire, but they need to win by big margins to improve their net run rate, which is currently the third worst on the table.
Both teams haven’t faced off yet this season, and as far as the overall head-to-head record is concerned, there is nothing that differentiates between the two teams. In the last five matches between the two teams, DC has emerged victorious four times, which could give them a psychological advantage heading into this game. However, both teams are well aware that the team that plays better cricket on the day will ultimately win the contest.
Probable Playing XIs
DC: David Warner, Phil Salt, Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw/Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Aman Khan, Lalit Yadav, Ripal Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Ishant Sharma
PBKS: Shikhar Dhawan, Prabhsimran Singh, Jitesh Sharma, Liam Livingstone, Sikandar Raza, Sam Curran, Shahrukh Khan, Rishi Dhawan, Harpreet Brar, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh, Nathan Ellis
This match has the potential to be a cracker jacker of a game, and fans of both teams will be eagerly waiting to see which team emerges victorious. Keep refreshing the page for the latest updates on the match.
