Both teams have strength
Delhi have aggressive players like David Warner, Prithvi Shaw and skipper Rishabh Pant while Punjab have Shikhar Dhawan, in-form Liam Livingstone and Shah Rukh Khan. The eyes of both the teams will be on returning to the path of victory and the batsmen will prove to be the key to success. Punjab captain Mayank Agarwal has returned to the team after recovering from a thumb injury that did not play against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
‘Chinaman’ near Delhi
Punjab’s middle order will also have to play with more responsibility and score runs. Jitesh Sharma has proved himself as a good finisher. But except Livingstone, no one could run against Sunrisers. Livingstone made 60 off 33 balls. The road to Punjab will not be as easy as the in-form ‘Chinaman’ bowler Kuldeep Yadav has taken 11 wickets so far.
Apart from Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur, fast bowler Khaleel Ahmed has also proved to be dangerous. On the other hand, Mustafizur Rahman will have to bowl better, who gave 48 runs against RCB.
Punjab’s bowling is also dangerous
The command of Punjab’s bowling will be in the hands of Kagiso Rabada. Apart from them, Vaibhav Arora, Arshdeep Singh and Rahul Chahar are also doing well. Bowler all-rounder Odeon Smith will have to do justice to his talent. Punjab has won three out of six matches and lost three. On the other hand, Delhi has won only two out of five matches, while it has an army of great players. The roles of Warner and Sau will be crucial.
