The Punjab Kings did well against the Delhi Capitals in their last game to keep hopes alive for a berth in the next round. As they take on the same opponents in the 64th game of the Indian Premier League 2023, the team would have a big win on their minds to improve their net run rate. It's all over for the Capitals, and the side which started with five consecutive losses will play for its pride.
The Delhi Capitals have been a disaster this season. They made a false start and never recovered from there. Inconsistency with the bat and a weak bowling attack has led to the team's undoing. The stakes would be high for the Punjab Kings, and they need an impressive win. It will be interesting to see how the Kings approach this contest, as immense pressure will be on them.
Shikhar Dhawan's side won the last game, but the Punjab Kings' skipper will be worried about the form of his batsmen. Apart from the heroics of Prabhsimran Singh, there wasn't much to talk about the batting. Dhawan would like better efforts from his batsmen as they fight to keep playoff hopes alive in this game. They have to play positive cricket here and win by a big margin.
Prabhsimran Singh hit a match-winning hundred in the last game, and he would like to continue with the form and lay a strong platform with Shikhar Dhawan. Liam Livingstone hasn't proved his potential, and he must add runs in the middle order with Jitesh Sharma and Sikandar Raza. Sam Curran, Rishi Dhawan, and Shahrukh Khan must play important knocks down the order.
Rishi Dhawan and Sam Curran would look to trouble the Delhi Capitals' batsmen at the top. Arshdeep Singh has shown consistency and must trouble the opponents in the middle overs with Harpreet Brar. Nathan Ellis, Rahul Chahar, and Sikandar Raza are experienced bowlers, making it a strong bowling attack.

David Warner would like to restore his team's pride and confidence in what is a lost battle for them. They have been patchy since the start of the season, and apart from a mid-season spark, there hasn't been anything for them to be proud of. Warner, who has done well with the bat, must lead the side from the front for them to have a chance in this game.
David Warner and Phillip Salt form an explosive pair, and they need to set up a big opening wicket stand as the rest of the batting line-up has been rusty. Rilee Rossouw, Mitchell Marsh, and Axar Patel will focus on building partnerships in this game. The side will also expect runs from Manish Pandey and Aman Hakim Khan in the lower middle order.
Khaleel Ahmed and Ishant Sharma must bowl good lines and get early breakthroughs to have the edge over the Punjab Kings. Axar Patel has done well and will need support in the middle overs from Kuldeep Yadav and Praveen Dubey. They will also expect a better show from Mitchell Marsh and Mukesh Kumar in this game.

There are predictions for clear skies over Dharamshala, and we expect a decent batting surface. Fast bowlers will enjoy bowling on this surface, and batsmen who get their eyes set on it shall do well. We expect it to be an average-scoring game, and the side batting first will be happy with 180 runs on the board.
HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala, is one of the most fast-bowler-friendly wickets in India. The ball moves here, and it can create doubts among the batsmen. Spinners have to bowl tight lines as the ball doesn't turn here as much as it does on other tracks in the country. The smaller boundaries mean that batsmen always fancy their chances on this wicket.
The wicket at this venue has come juice in the early overs, where the fast bowlers can move the ball. Chasing scores has proved to be easier than putting runs on the board. The side winning the toss wouldn't hesitate to bowl first on this surface.
Delhi Capitals must play freely in this contest as they are already out of the playoffs. Lack of form with the bat and poor execution of bowling plans has been their problem. The Capitals would look to give it all as they play for their pride. The Punjab Kings have the openers in good form and depth in their bowling attack. While we expect this to be a close contest, the Punjab Kings will start slightly ahead in the game.
