Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals IPL


An already-eliminated Delhi Capitals could play spoilsport and crush the slim hopes of Punjab Kings when the teams meet on Wednesday. This IPL #64 will be played at the HPCA Stadium in the picturesque Dharamsala from 7:30pm IST. This will be the first of the two home matches in three days that the Kings will play at this venue.

Looking at the playoff scenarios, the Capitals are already eliminated and are only trying to avoid the wooden spoon. Punjab Kings are still in the mix and could finish on 16 points if they win both the matches. Yet, with their net run rate still being negative, they need huge margins of wins. They can be in the contention even with one win, but that could come down to a bigger battle.

Delhi were looking good for an easy win in the reverse fixture before an astonishing collapse. I am backing Delhi Capitals to continue being aggressive at the top and win the powerplay battle.

  • Punjab Kings have conceded the most powerplay runs in 6 of their last 9 matches (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have scored the most powerplay runs in their last 5 matches against Punjab Kings (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have scored the most powerplay runs in 4 of their last 7 matches (IPL)
  • Punjab Kings have lost 6 of their last 8 matches against Delhi Capitals (IPL)
  • Punjab Kings have conceded the most runs for the first wicket in 8 of their last 10 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


Punjab Kings have played Delhi Capitals in 31 IPL matches so far with Punjab having a slight 16-15 edge in the win count. Yet, it is the Delhi Capitals that has won six of the last eight matches between these sides.

The sides have met on May 13 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium when Punjab won by 31 runs. Prabhsimran Singh’s lone hand (103) took the Kings to 167/7 which looked inadequate but the Capitals could muster only 136/8.

Punjab Kings Form


Punjab Kings are 8th in the standings with 12 points from 12 matches. A win her could lift them to as high as fourth and that explains the fluidity of the table.

The Kings won their last match against the Capitals but it outlined their batting problems with an inconsistent top-order part of the problem. Only Prabhsimran Singh and Shikhar Dhawan have aggregated 300+ this season while with the ball Arshdeep Singh’s 16 wickets led the way.

The challenge for Punjab is to find runs from their flopping batters.

Punjab Kings Team News


Punjab Capitals have a fit squad to choose from. Nathan Ellis and Prabhsimran Singh could once again trade places as impact players.

Delhi Capitals Form


Delhi Capitals are 10th in the standings with eight points and are eliminated from the playoff race.

The loss to Punjab in the last match was symptomatic of how the Capitals’ season has been. Only David Warner has aggregated more than 300 runs for the side while with the ball, Mitchell Marsh’s 12 wickets is the most for any bowler.

With nothing to lose, Delhi could look to go out on a high.

Delhi Capitals Team News


Anrich Nortje hasn’t returned from South Africa and is unavailable. With nothing much to gain from the result, Delhi could use the match to give a chance to players like Yash Dhull.
