Series: Indian Premier League 2023

Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals, 64th Match 17th May 7.30 PM IST

Venue: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala

The Punjab Kings did well against the Delhi Capitals in their last game to keep hopes alive for a berth in the next round. As they take on the
same opponents in the 64th game of the Indian Premier League 2023, the team would have a big win on their minds to improve their net run rate.
It’s all over for the Capitals, and the side which started with five consecutive losses will play for its pride.
The Delhi Capitals have been a disaster this season. They made a false start and never recovered from there. Inconsistency with the bat and a weak
bowling attack has led to the team’s undoing. The stakes would be high for the Punjab Kings, and they need an impressive win. It will be interesting
to see how the Kings approach this contest, as immense pressure will be on them.

Punjab Kings Preview
Shikhar Dhawan’s side won the last game, but the Punjab Kings’ skipper will be worried about the form of his batsmen. Apart from the heroics of
Prabhsimran Singh, there wasn’t much to talk about the batting. Dhawan would like better efforts from his batsmen as they fight to keep playoff
hopes alive in this game. They have to play positive cricket here and win by a big margin.

Delhi Capitals Preview
David Warner would like to restore his team’s pride and confidence in what is a lost battle for them. They have been patchy since the start
of the season, and apart from a mid-season spark, there hasn’t been anything for them to be proud of. Warner, who has done well with the bat,
must lead the side from the front for them to have a chance in this game.

Pitch Report
HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala, is one of the most fast-bowler-friendly wickets in India. The ball moves here, and it can create doubts among the batsmen.
Spinners have to bowl tight lines as the ball doesn’t turn here as much as it does on other tracks in the country. The smaller boundaries mean that
batsmen always fancy their chances on this wicket.
