Possible Top Performers

Probable Best Batter of the Match: David Warner

David Warner is having a superb season with the bat and the SRH management would be cursing themselves for dropping him last year. David Warner is currently the third-highest run-scorer of this edition of IPL with 427 runs from just 10 games with an average of 61.00 and a strike rate of 152.50.

The veteran left-hander has so far smashed 5 half-centuries which is the most by any player this season. He also scored a fifty in the last game and he is expected to play another good knock for his side against Punjab Kings on Monday.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match: Kagiso Rabada

Kagiso Rabada has been quite impressive with the bowl for Punjab Kings this season. He claimed a 3-wicket haul in the last match that helped his side to defend 210 runs in the last match against RCB.

Kagiso Rabada is currently the third-highest wicket-taker of IPL 2022. He has picked up 21 wickets from just 11 games this season with an excellent average of 16.38 and two four-wicket hauls. Rabada will be a key bowler for Punjab Kings in this match and he has a chance to gain the purple cap by delivering another outstanding performance with the bowl.

DC vs PBKS Who Will Win:

Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals have equal points but due to a better net run rate DC is placed above the Punjab Kings on the points table. Both teams have a chance to enter the top 4 by winning this match because RCB has a lower run rate as compared to these two.

Delhi Capitals have already defeated Punjab Kings this season so, their confidence will be quite high against them. Delhi Capitals have a strong batting lineup while Punjab Kings have an in-form bowling attack with the likes of Rabada and Rahul Chahar hence, it will be a great contest between Delhi’s batting and Punjab’s bowling. The team combination of Delhi Capitals is looking a bit better than Punjab Kings in this match.

Hence, we predict that DC will beat PBKS in match 64 of this season.
