Punjab Kings (PBKS) will face Delhi Capitals (DC) in the 29th match of IPL 2021, a rousing PBKS vs DC game on Sunday. Both teams are coming off a win in their last game and would be keen to continue the winning momentum.
Delhi Capitals are undoubtedly one of the favorites this year, given the power-packed performances they have delivered so far. Despite the absence of Shreyas Iyer, Delhi has fared well to sit at the second position on the table with 5 wins in 7 matches. After losing the last games, Delhi came back to winning ways after defeating KKR by 7 wickets. Prithvi Shaw, who has been in fine touch, put on a show at Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium to help the team chase down a 154-run target in just 16.3 overs. The batting department has fared well in the last couple of games, while the bowling has looked as solid as ever. Delhi would be confident of registering their sixth win when they meet Punjab on Sunday.
Punjab Kings have made a fine comeback after registering their third win of the tournament against RCB on Friday. KL Rahul and Chris Gayle made valuable contributions, while the inclusion of Harpreet Brar did wonders for them. The Punjab all-rounder took the wickets of Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers in the second innings to help the team register a comfortable victory of 34 runs. They would look to earn their fourth win and strengthen their position on the table.
Both teams would be desperate for a win as we are in for a enthralling clash on Sunday.
