DC vs PBKS Dream11 Match Preview
Mitchell Marsh and four other members of the DC contingent (not players) have been tested COVID positive. This game has been shifted to Mumbai instead of Pune. The match will go forward only if the rest of the DC players test negative in the RT PCR test.
Delhi Capitals are at the 8th position with 2 wins in 5 matches. They lost their last game against RCB by 16 runs. Delhi have one of the best opening pairs in the league in David Warner and Prithvi Shaw. Both of them are looking in excellent form as well. The middle-order has been a bit inconsistent and this is an issue for them. Rishabh Pant has been average with the bat while all the others in the middle-order have failed. Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, and Shardul Thakur are the major contributors with the bat in the lower order. Rovman Powell’s failure has hurt them in the finishing department.
The bowlers have done a good job till now. Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mustafizur Rahman, etc have been very consistent with the ball. Khaleel Ahmed has been excellent as well. Axar Patel is yet to give his best but he has been decent as well. DC needs their middle-order to take responsibility as the tournament progresses.
Punjab Kings are at the 7th position with 3 wins in 6 matches. They were defeated by the Sunrisers Hyderabad very convincingly by 7 wickets in their last match. Punjab has been a very attacking batting unit and the batters keep playing their shots despite wickets failing regularly. Shikhar Dhawan has been very consistent for them. Liam Livingstone has been their best and most aggressive batter. Johnny Bairstow is yet to fire but he is a very destructive batter as well. Jitesh Sharma has been brilliant for them while Shahrukh Khan too flexed his muscles in the last game. Batting depth has been an issue for Punjab and they need at least one or two of their batters to play till the end.
Their bowling has been good. Kagiso Rabada is their lead pacer and has done a good job till now. Arshdeep Singha and Vaibhav Arora have assisted him quite well. Rahul Chahar has been exceptional with his leg-spin and Livingstone too has been decent whenever he has bowled. Odean Smith has been expensive but they are backing him to do well. Punjab needs their batters to be a little sensible and assist their bowlers well.
