Both teams level on points
- Delhi have a big positive net run rate
- Punjab bank on batting power
Punjab Kings gave their season a late push with their big win over Royal Challengers Bangalore in the last fixture. They need another superb game against Delhi to better their chances of a top four finish. Punjab have odds of 1.90 to win the match.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have a positive net run rate. However, DC find themselves in trouble because of a few bad games. A win over Punjab would take them into the top four and likely would mean qualification. They have odds of 1.87 to win the match.
What happened earlier…
When these teams met earlier in the season, Delhi Capitals blanked Punjab Kings with a nine-wicket win. The spinners shared six wickets between them as Delhi bowled Punjab out for 115. David Warner and Prithvi Shaw then made it a no-contest with a massive opening stand at incredible pace…
Delhi Capitals have a more rounded team and are our favourites to win this one.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The match could be decided by how Punjab Kings’ batting fares. The likes of Liam Livingstone and Shikhar Dhawan, aside from Jonny Bairstow, have found form or are in good touch, and will want to make it count in this crucial clash.
Keep an eye on…
Liam Livingstone: The England batter has had an incredible season, smashing 385 runs at a strike-rate of over 180 and has been a revelation in the middle-order for Punjab Kings.
David Warner: In a game as big as this, Delhi Capitals will want David Warner at his best. He has been in good form, and also top-scored last match against Punjab Kings.
TIP: Liam Livingstone is in great touch. Back Livingstone at 6.02 to be the best batter for Punjab!
