The 32nd match of the IPL 2022 will be played between Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings at the MCA Stadium in Pune on 20th April 2022. Both the teams have come up by losing their last games and will try to bounce back in the competition during this match.

It's been a see-saw ride for both the teams in the last few matches. DC are currently at the 8th place in the points table with 2 wins from 5 games whereas, PBKS have managed to win 3 games from 6 matches they played and having 6 points, they are at the 7th place in the points table.

This match will be important for both the teams as Delhi Capitals are looking forward to winning their next game of the season to stay in the race for playoffs whereas Mayank Agarwal-led Punjab Kings will also try to be back in the winning mode after their defeat against SRH in the last game.

Delhi Capitals Preview

DC were looking strong at the start of the IPL 2022 but failed to carry on that momentum ahead in the next few matches. Currently, they are in 8th place in the points table after winning just 2 matches from 5 games they played so far.

In the last matches against RCB, DC’s bowlers were looking in great tich initially. In the powerplay, they bowled brilliantly to take 3 big wickets of Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, and Anuj Rawat on 40 runs. Although they had put pressure initially but failed to deliver the same at the death overs and conceded 189 runs in the 20 overs.

While chasing the target of 190 runs, DC’s openers had started the inning with a bang and managed to put a 50 runs partnership for the first wicket in the 5th over only. David Warner had shown his class again and scored 66 runs in 38 balls but the middle-order batters failed to deliver partnerships in the middle overs. DC lost the match by 16 runs.

DC have a good batting lineup but the middle-order batters like Rishabh pant, Rovman Powell, and Mitchell Marsh are yet to deliver their skills this season. DC will try to back on a winning track against PBKS in the next match with the help of these batters.

Key Players: David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Mustafizur Rahman, Khaleel Ahmed.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing XI:

David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant (c, wk), Mitchell Marsh, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Khaleel Ahmed.

Punjab Kings Preview

Punjab Kings have won alternative matches this season and with 3 wins from 6 games they played so far, they are in the 7th place just above Delhi Capitals. It will be a big game for PBKS as they will try to win that game to be in the top 4 again.

After a superb batting display against Mumbai Indians, PBKS’ batter failed to deliver that against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last match in the absence of their captain Mayank Agarwal. Despite Liam Livingstone’s inning of 60 runs from 33 balls, no other batter could manage to score more than 30 runs in their batting unit. They lost 4 wickets in the last over to get bowled out on just 151 runs.

Rahul Chahar had tried to put pressure on SRH’s batters with his googlies and leggies, but PBKS had failed to defend that target of 152 runs. Rahul Chahar bowled a brilliant spell of 2 wickets for 28 runs in his 4 overs. Kagiso Rababda had supported him by picking up 1 wicket with his pace attack.

Mayank Agarwal’s absence in the opening had led them to face a defeat after a poor batting display and that is why the opening of Mayank Agarwal and Shikhar Dhawan will be an important factor for them when they face Delhi Capitals in the next game. Mayank Agarwal is likely to make a comeback to the squad for the next game against DC

Key Players: Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Rahul Chahar.

Punjab Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, Jitesh Sharma, Odeon Smith, Arshdeep Singh, Rahul Chahar, Kagiso Rabada, Vaibhav Arora.

Weather Conditions

The weather will be sunny on a matchday with temperatures ranging between 39°C and 24°C. The dew factor hadn’t influenced much in the past matches and that is why pitch has been favoring both the bowlers as well as batters here.

Venue Details

The venue for this match was switched to Mumbai, Brabourne Stadium. The last 2 games from the IPL 2022 seasons saw high scoring innings. Expect over 200 runs per inning in this game!

Toss: To Bowl

Toss will be a crucial factor in the match results. In the last 5 IPL matches played here at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune, the team who chose to chase the target has won 2 times whereas, the team defending the target managed to win 3 games. But by looking at the performances of the chasing team in the last 2 matches,  the team winning toss should opt to bowl first.

By looking at both squads, it is clear that both have power-hitting batting units but the only thing that will change the result of the match is the performance of the bowling units. Both units have good spinners but PBKS have an edge over DC in terms of pace attack. Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh will try to put pressure on DC’s batsmen and that will create more chances for PBKS to win the game.

 

We predict that Punjab Kings will defeat Delhi Capitals!
