DC vs PBKS: An exciting contest beckons on Sunday as Punjab Kings will take on Delhi Capitals in what will be the 11th match of IPL 2021.
Punjab Kings Preview
After starting their campaign with the win, Punjab Kings lost their second game at the hands of Chennai by 6 wickets on Friday. The top-order collapse led to their defeat and Punjab would like to forget and move forward. Nevertheless, they found a potential find for them in the form of Shah Rukh Khan. He played a valuable knock down the order. He is likely to strengthen the fragile-looking middle order of Punjab Kings. Also, they might consider adding a specialist all-rounder in Moises Henriques in the side.
Delhi Capitals Preview
Delhi Capitals too suffered a top-order collapse in their second game against Rajasthan Royals. The absence of Shimron Hetmyer did hurt the balance of the squad. Delhi, too, have a lack of dependent batsmen in the lower middle order. Marcus Stoinis poor run with the bat is also hurting them badly. A lot of Delhi players haven’t played to their potential. For them to perform well going ahead in the tournament, the players must step up to the plate and showcase better performances.
Fortunately, Anrich Nortje has tested negative for Covid and is likely to play the third game. The inclusion of Nortje will strengthen the bowling unit. He is likely to replace Tom Curran. Chris Woakes has bowled well in the two games. Delhi would be keen to include him in the eleven. However, that would weaken the batting core. It remains to be seen what changes would Delhi make to shortlist their best eleven.
