The second game of the doubleheader sees Delhi Capitals (DC) take on Punjab Kings (PBKS) in match number 11 of the Dream11 Indian Premier League 2021. Both the teams enter the contest on the back of similar fates as both have won one and lost one.

However, the Punjab side were thrashed by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the last match which was a one-sided contest. It was a poor show by them with the bat and the ball. Moreover, the form of some batsman is a sign of concern for them so one can expect some changes coming into this match.

On the other side, Delhi would want to re-think their strategy of dropping a batter for a pacer. Overall for Delhi, they look like a much stronger unit this year. They have quality and depth in their batting and bowling departments.

It would be an interesting battle as both sides will be looking to get back on the winning ways.

What to Expect (PITCH REPORT):

The pitch which was used to being a heaven for batsmen has now been turned into a hell for them. In the last couple of matches, the flat batting track has behaved strangely and helped bowlers to get on some early swing. It would be interesting to see how long this trend continues. However, one part is for sure due plays a crucial part in the second innings and so both the teams will be looking to the ball first.
