db vs pd Match Prediction & Analysis

Delhi Bulls registered their third win of the season when they defeated the Deccan Gladiators in what turned out to be a one-sided contest. The side would now be looking to carry forward the same form as they play against the Pune Devils in the 17th game of the tournament. The Devils are coming into this game after suffering a massive defeat at the hands of the Bangla Tigers 

The Pune Devils have looked in poor form in the last three games where both their batsmen and bowlers have failed to meet up to the demands of this format of the game. They would be up against a formidable opponent in Delhi Bulls and have to play real good cricket to win this game. Knowing Bulls they aren’t likely to make it any easier for them in this game

Teams Preview

Delhi Bulls Preview

Dwayne Bravo’s side made a strong comeback in their game against the Deccan Gladiators which they won by 8 wickets. The skipper would have been very proud of the efforts of his team in the game after they had lost the previous game. One more win here would strengthen the position if the side on the points table. 

Openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Evin Lewis are in tremendous form at the moment and a good start would be expected of them in this game. Ravi Bopara has scored runs in the earlier games and along with Mohammad Nabi and Sherfane Rutherford adds solidity to this line-up. With Tom Abell and Bravo down the order they look very strong in this department. 

Shiraz Ahmed and Ali Khan were brilliant with the ball in the last game and restricted their opponents to a low total. Amad Butt and Fidel Edwards have gone for runs in most games and a good show would be expected from them here. Bravo, Nabi and Abell add strength to this line-up.  

Delhi Bulls Predicted Playing XI:

Dwayne Bravo (c), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Evin Lewis, Tom Abell, Ravi Bopara, Mohammad Nabi, Sherfane Rutherford, Shiraz Ahmed, Ali Khan, Amad Butt, Fidel Edwards

Pune Devils Preview

Poor form continues for Nasir Hossain’s side as they head into this must-win game. The side lost out to the Bangla Tigers in the last game 8 wickets, their third consecutive loss in the season and the skipper would now want his team to rise up to the challenge as they head on to take the Delhi Bulls. 

Tom Kohler-Cadmore has looked good with the bat and he would have to set up a good opening stand alongside Kennar Lewis. Alex Davies too played well in the last game but the form of Chadwick Walton is a worrying factor for the side heading into this contest. Nasir Hossain would be expected to do the big hitting towards the end of the innings. 

Mohammad Amir is enjoying good rhythm and the side would expect early wickets from him in this game. Munis Ansari and Hardus Viljoen have been expensive and they will be expected to bowl tighter. Karan KC and Ahmed Reza have to offer good support to the main bowlers 

Pune Devils Predicted Playing XI:

Nasir Hossain (c), Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Kennar Lewis, Chadwick Walton (wk), Alex Davies, Devon Thomas, Karan KC, Hardus Viljoen, Mohammad Amir, Munis Ansari, Ahmed Raza

Weather Conditions

The skies would be clear on February 02 over Abu Dhabi and we expect the ball to come on to the bat nicely in this game. Spinners have done well here as compared to the fast bowlers. The side batting first in this game would have to go past 130 runs to win here.

Venue Details

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi is one of the largest grounds in the world but the quick outfield does offer good scoring opportunities to the batsmen. The conditions aren’t the best here for the fast bowlers but spinners have always troubled the batsmen here.

Toss: To Bowl

In the 15 games so far sides chasing the score have gone on to win 12 games. It is a great track to chase totals as teams and knowing the target score of great hello for the batsmen. Based on what we have seen so far the side winning the toss is most likely to opt for bowling in this game. 

DB vs PD Winning Prediction

It is a game between two sides with contrasting fortunes. Pune Devils are in deep trouble after losing out in the last three games. Their batting line-up doesn’t look in the best of form at the moment. Delhi Bulls on the other hand would be extremely confident after their success in the last game and this shall make them favorites
