DC v PBKS could be a battle of strong hitters on Sunday as Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings get ready for the super Sunday double header. This match #11 of the Indian Premier League 2021 season will be played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Both Delhi and Punjab have one win and one loss each, with only net run rate separating them. Delhi Capitals defeated Chennai Super Kings by seven wickets before losing by three wickets to Rajasthan Royals. Conversely, Punjab Kings defeated Rajasthan Royals by four runs before losing by six wickets to Chennai Super Kings.
Delhi Capitals Preview
South African pacer Anrich Nortje is available for selection making the Capitals’ bowling look stronger. Kagiso Rabada and Nortje could be the difference for Delhi. Ravichandran Ashwin has been calmly doing his job and can be a dark-horse pick.
With the bat, you can’t think beyond Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant. The two left-handers have been in inspiring form this season. Both the players probably walk into any fantasy team! Be careful if you are picking Ajinkya Rahane, who has been struggling for form.
Punjab Kings Preview
Punjab’s batting has been all about captain KL Rahul, who can be a good all-round pick. He has been tidy behind the stumps too, giving you extra points. Chris Gayle hasn’t come good yet, but can be destructive on his day.
The two Aussie bowlers Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith have struggled for impact so far. Selecting them could be tricky. Mohammed Shami has been spot on with his seamers which should earn him a spot in your side. Murugan Ashwin is another disappointment of the season and may even have to make way for Ravi Bishnoi.
DC v PBKS Fantasy Players to Watch
Rishabh Pant loves playing at the Wankhede, averaging 63.33 at a SR of 192.92 in five games at this venue. He can be a potential captain for your fantasy side.
KL Rahul is the only batsman to score more than 2,000 IPL runs since January 2018. His average of 54.54 during this period suggests that he has been more often a hit than a miss.
Kagiso Rabada can’t stop taking wickets. He started this season with a two-wicket spell and can be gunning for a repeat.
