IPL 2022: Match 32, DC vs PBKS Match Prediction – Who will win today’s IPL Match?

DC vs PBKS Match Prediction -Who Will Win Today’s Match?

Preview

DC vs PBKS: The upcoming game hangs in the balance with some positive cases in the Delhi Capitals camp. Both players and support staff have members in trouble but for now the game is stated to go ahead. Last game, Delhi Capitals lost after looking strong in the chase until a middle-overs slow down.

They go up against the Punjab Kings who are an explosive side struggling to bat through. In multiple cases this season, PBKS have gone too hard up front only to find themselves struggling to bat the 20 overs. They are ending with lower totals then expected and will probably look at their approach as someone looks to bat a little deeper into the innings.

Key Players

Axar Patel

Axar Patel continues to be a silent star in the Delhi Capitals line-up. He is maintaining a smooth line and length to choke batters and remains economical even when the other bowlers are taken for runs. Along with his economy, Axar Patel is doing a handy job in picking up some key wickets in the opposing line-up.

Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh has the lowest economy in the death overs and is using his left-arm angle well to find the yorker outside the off-stump. He is taking wickets as well in the death but a lack of runs from the batters has made his job tougher. Despite PBKS struggling with the bat, Arshdeep Singh has stood out with the ball in an attempt to save the Punja.

DC vs PBKS Match Tips

DC are struggling with a lack of personnel and niggles in the side. They may have limited options to choose from and if their bowling is weakened, the Capitals will have a tough time containing Punjab’s batting line-up.

Match Prediction: PBKS will win the match.
