Punjab Kings have been going through a roller coaster ride throughout the IPL 2022. The Mayank Agarwal-led team has won and lost three games each so far in the season. PBKS will be heading into their next game on the back of a seven-wicket defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The absence of their regular captain was felt at the top as there wasn’t a significant contribution from openers. The return of Agarwal for the Wednesday fixture will boost the team’s confidence. The Punjab-based team will look forward to getting back on their winning ways. With six points, PBKS have acquired the seventh spot on the leaderboard.
On the other end, Delhi Capitals are also having an underwhelming season so far. One of the most consistent teams of the past few years has been finding it difficult to grab back-to-back victories. DC have played five games so far out of which they won twice and lost thrice. The Rishabh Pant-led team is likely to miss the services of Mitchell Marsh after the Aussie tested positive for COVID-19. The Delhi-based franchise will count on the in-form opening pair to kick-start the innings on a higher note. With four points, DC have occupied the eighth position.
In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, PBKS have the upper hand. The two teams faced off on 28 occasions, Punjab won 15 games while Delhi emerged victorious on 13 instances.
In the last outing between the two teams DC won by seven wickets.
PBKS: Lotus Herbals, Jio, All Seasons Hand Rub and Dream11
