Punjab Kings desperately need a big win (PC: iplt20)
New Delhi.The dream of Delhi Capitals reaching the playoffs is already over. They are at the last position in the points table with 8 points. Almost all the ways for him to reach the playoffs are closed. Despite this, he remains a threat to some teams. Punjab Kings is one of those teams. Punjab is also scared of Delhi because Warner’s team has already reached the verge of being thrown out, but on the way out, he should not drag them along with him. Punjab is stuck in a similar equation.
Shikhar Dhawan-led Punjab won 5 out of 11 matches and lost 6. He is at 8th position with 10 points. Delhi can spoil his game. If Punjab loses the match at the hands of Delhi, then its journey to reach the playoffs will become very difficult. Punjab needs victory over Delhi at any cost, but its work will not be done only by victory. His net run rate is -0.441. This is the third worst run rate in this league. In such a situation, Punjab will have to win all their matches with a big margin.

After the defeat in Chennai, Delhi will play at home and will try to make a comeback.
weakness of both teams
Delhi’s 2 spinners Akshar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav have been able to shine in this league so far. Delhi’s weakness in the first half of the season was batting. David Warner, Phil Salt, Riley Russo made a late return. Punjab’s headache Sam Karan remains the most expensive player in IPL history. Who haven’t been able to prove their worth yet. He was able to take 7 wickets in 11 matches. Could not do anything special with the bat. He has put up a fifty so far. Punjab can give Kagiso Rabada a chance in the playing eleven.
