Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals top picks

PBKS: Kagiso Rabada has been quietly climbing up the ladder for the purple cap with 21 wickets from 11 matches and has been Punjab’s go-to bowler. Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow have provided Punjab with the ammunition while Shikar Dhawan (402 from 12 matches) has played an anchor’s role for his side. 

DC: Delhi Capitals have been inconsistent but have found their mojo at the right time. The Capitals will rely on Anrich Nortje to provide breakthroughs while Rishabh Pant, David Warner (427 runs from 10 matches) will be up for a challenge with the bat.

Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals prediction

Bookies have favoured Delhi Capitals to come out on top in this crucial encounter due to the combined firepower of David Warner and Rishabh Pant. However, Punjab Kings also possess a settled batting line-up and should get over the line if Kagiso Rabada gets support from Arshdeep Singh from the other end with the ball.
