On Monday evening, the Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings will face off in the IPL 2022.
IPL 2022: On Monday, DC and PBKS will play each other.
Capitals also have 12 points and are in fifth place
On Monday, the Indian Premier League’s Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings will try to beat each other to keep their hopes of making the playoffs alive. Both teams have yet to win two games in a row this season, but neither can afford to lose another league game.
With 12 points and a Net Run Rate of +0.023, Punjab is in seventh place on the points table. The Capitals also have 12 points and are in fifth place. This is because their NRR is a healthy +0.210, which will help them if two or more teams finish with the same number of points. The Capitals are feeling good about the game because they beat the Rajasthan Royals by eight wickets, while Punjab beat up on RCB.
David Warner is still having a good time at the top of the order
The captain of Delhi, Rishbah Pant, said that it was “close to a perfect game.” David Warner is still having a good time at the top of the order, but the second opening spot is still a worry because Mandeep Singh and Srikar Bharat are doing very poorly without Prithvi Shaw, who has also not done well this season.
Shaw, who had typhoid, has been released from the hospital, but it remains to be seen if the young man is well enough to play in Monday’s important game. Mitchell Marsh finally joined the party, which made DC happy. The big-hitting all-rounder got over being out of practice and did well with both bat and ball against RR. He and Warner will be very important.
Kagiso Rabada has taken the most wickets this season of any pacer
How Pant does will also matter a lot. The captain looked like he was in his element when he hit two sixes in his unconquered 4-ball stay against RR. But he hasn’t yet played the game-winning innings he is capable of.
Rovman Powell has shown that it’s easy for him to hit fours and sixes, and with help from the top order, he can win games. They will have to get past a bowling attack led by pacer Kagiso Rabada. Who has taken the most wickets this season of any pacer.
DC’s bowling team was right on the mark against RR
Rahul Chahar has been expensive, while Arshdeep Singh, who keeps getting better, has been great for Punjab. Especially in the last few overs. On the other hand, DC’s bowling team was right on the mark against RR. Khaleel Ahmed hurt his hamstring, so young Chetan Sakaria bowled very well in his place. Pace spearhead Anrich Nortje is also finding his rhythm.
But Shardul Thakur is still the weakest link. He has been giving away runs and hasn’t taken many wickets. The bowlers from Delhi will have their work cut out for them against the flashy Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Shikhar Dhawan, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Bairstow and Livingstone, two English players, can break up any attack, as they did against RCB.
Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s hitting has been impressive
Dhawan has scored more than 400 runs for Punjab. And he will be counted on to step up in a must-win game. After being moved up to the top with Dhawan. Bairstow has found his groove, which is a big plus for the team.
Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s hitting has been impressive. But he will need to do more than just play a “flash in the pan” innings. Mayank Agarwal, who is the captain and has moved down in the lineup. Has not been at his best with the bat this season. As the team tries to stay alive, Monday will be the best day for him to play a captain’s knock.
