Time’s running out for Delhi and Punjab who are in the bottom three positions ahead of this weekend fixtures. While Delhi are almost out of reckoning, Punjab are still alive but need to win this to stay in the hunt. I am backing the Capitals to spring a surprise here and pick up a win.

Head to Head


The 30 previous IPL matches played between these sides have ended in 15 wins each. The record is tilted towards Delhi in the recent times with the Capitals winning six of their last seven matches against Punjab.

Last season, Delhi won both the matches against Punjab – first one by nine wickets and 53 balls remaining and the second by 17 runs.

Delhi Capitals Form


Delhi Capitals are bottom of the points tally with eight points from 11 matches. They are coming off a 27-run defeat at the hands of Chennai Super Kings but have won four of their last six matches.

It is David Warner (330) who has been leading their batting show while others have generally struggled barring Axar Patel (267). Bowling has a surprise leader in Mitchell Marsh (12) while Axar has been among the wickets too (nine).

With very few players rising up in the middle-order, the Capitals have been struggling for consistency.

Delhi Capitals Team News


It is still not sure if Anrich Nortje has returned, after going back to South Africa due to some personal reasons.

Punjab Kings Form


Punjab are 8th in the standings with 10 points from 11 matches. Although they are still mathematically in the race, the Kings need to keep winning.

The Kings’ batting has been led by their captain Shikhar Dhawan (349 runs) while Jitesh Sharma (260) has been a revelation. Bowling has been led by the irresistible Arshdeep Singh (16 wickets).

There has been no consistent performer for the Punjab side with no one other than Dhawan taking up the lead role in the top-order.

Punjab Kings Team News


Bhanuka Rajapaksa was dismissed for a duck in the last game but may still hold his place, unless Matty Short is brought in.
