Punjab Kings (PBKS) will face Delhi Capitals (DC) today in Match no. 29 of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Both the teams have won their last match and ready to continue their winning race.

PBKS have won against Royal Challengers in a dominating way. Brar put an excellent performance. They are currently at the fifth position in the points table. They have six points from 7 outings.

DC have won against Kolkata Knight Riders quite easily. Prithvi Shaw batted exceptionally well. They are currently in the second position with 10 points.

Inside PBKS:

KL Rahul is performing well and in the race of the orange cap. Mayank is still on the injury list. Prabhsimran Singh was not so impressive in the least match. Deepak Hooda is struggling with batting.

Eyes will be on Gayle to score big runs for PBKS

Gayle has performed well in the last match. Hard time is going on for Pooran. He got 4 ducks in this season. Dawid Malan must get an opportunity now. Shaharukhan’s bat is silent in the last couple of matches too.

Riley has played the last match but injured himself. Bishnoi and Brar bowled exceptionally amazing last day. Shami and Jordan are doing well too.

Inside DC:

Prithvi Shaw is having a great season this year. He and Dhawan are looking dangerous especially in the powerplay. Pant is promoting himself at no. 3 and that is going well.

Smith is contributing too. Hetmyer is in an explosive mood right now. He is also hitting well. Stoinis is not in a form like the previous season but doing pretty well.

Young Lalit Yadav has impressed all with his all-round performance. Death bowling is a matter of concern for DC as Rabada is not in a good shape this year.

PBKS vs DC- Match details:

Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals

Venue: Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad

When: May 2, 7:30 pm IST

PBKS vs DC- What to expect:

On expected lines, the track for the RCB-PBKS game was a tad two-paced. The dew also didn’t come into the picture. In such conditions, tall pace bowlers can find some lift (loopy bounce) out of the surface, with spinners also coming into play.

Probable XI of PBKS:

KL Rahul may open with Prabhsimran Singh. Mandeep may get a chance in place of Prabhsimran. Gayle will come at no. 3. Dawid Malan may replace Pooran. Mandeep can replace Hooda too.

Harpreet Brar take the wickets of Kohli, Maxwell and ABD in last match

Shahrukh Khan will be there in the middle with Chris Jordan. If Riley is unfit Jhye may play in his place.

Harpreet Brar and Bishnoi must continue with the spin. Shami and Jordan will be the remaining bowlers.

PBKS team against DC: KL Rahul (c, wk), Prabhsimran Singh/Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran/Dawid Malan, Deepak Hooda, Shahrukh Khan, Harpreet Brar, Chris Jordan, Riley Meredith/Jhye Richardson, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami.

Probable XI of DC:

There may be no changes in the team. Prithvi and Dhawan will open. Smith may be at no. 3. Risbh Pant will come at 4 in general time.

Prithvi has scored 6 fours in a over against KKR

Stoinis and Hetmyer will be in the middle. Lalit and Axar will play as spinning all-rounders. Rabada, Avesh Khan, and Ishant Sharma will be the fast bowlers.

DC team against PBKS:  Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant (c, wk), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav/Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan.
