DC vs PBKS: On May 13, the first match of IPL second double header will be played between Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings (DC vs PBKS) at Feroshah Kotla Stadium. The Delhi Capitals team, which is out of the playoffs, can spoil the game of Punjab. If Punjab is successful in winning this match, then their hope of reaching the playoffs can remain alive, but the Warner army can become their obstacle in fulfilling this dream of Punjab. Let us know before this match that how will be the playing-11 of Delhi against Punjab
DC vs PBKS: Punjab’s opening pair
First of all, let’s look at the opening pair of Punjab Kings in the match played against Mumbai on Saturday. Captain Shikhar Dhawan and Prabhsimran Singh can be seen starting the innings. The problem of the Punjab team has been that they have got good starts in very few matches.
In the last match too, Bhasimran was dismissed after scoring 12 runs. That’s what he showed good performance for the team. However, his bat was silent in the last match, while captain Shikhar played a brilliant inning of 57 runs. In such a situation, Prabhsimran can give a good start to Punjab by playing a big innings against Delhi.
These players will play a big role in the middle order
Talking about the middle order of Punjab Kings (PBKS vs CSK), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Sam Karan will have a big responsibility on their shoulders. Although the middle order player of Punjab disappointed his team a lot.
Bhanuka Rajapakse was included in the playing-11 in the last match but he was dismissed without opening an account. While Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma also could not show any wonder with the bat and got out cheaply.
Please tell that Liam Livingstone can come down to bat at number four. Even though his bat was silent in the last match, everyone is aware of his aggressive batting. Sam Karan can come to bat at number five. Whereas for the lower order, the team will have the option of Shahrukh Khan and Harpreet Brar.
DC vs PBKS: This will be the bowling unit
In the matches played so far, the bowling of Punjab Kings has emerged as a weak link. The bowling department has flopped very badly in the last match, KKR batsman scored a lot of runs. Punjab’s bowlers could not defend the score of 180 against KKR, due to which they had to face defeat by 5 wickets. But the captain will have high hopes from his main bowler Rahul Chahar and Arshdeep Singh to give wickets to his team against Delhi.
Possible playing 11 of PBKS: Prabhsimran Singh, Shikhar Dhawan (c), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Sam Curran, Shah Rukh Khan, Harpreet Brar, Rishi Dhawan, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh
