Delhi Capitals vs Punjab Kings -Team performance in the past matches
Delhi Capitals had a terrific season so far. Their performance has been way too below the mark. They are currently positioned at the bottom of the points table with the least number of wins. This season is already over for Delhi Capitals as their net run rate is also average. Punjab Kings are slightly in a better position and they are currently holding the 8th position. They had a good start this IPL season by winning against Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals. Later on, they failed to maintain their winning streak. Failures in the last two matches have definitely shaken their confidence. This match will play a huge role in deciding the team’s fate this season
Punjab Kings had a compelling clash against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens. They faced a loss in that match by 5 wickets. Shikhar Dhawan managed to score 57 runs in just 47 balls. Shahrukh Khan and Jitesh Sharma also added runs to the total. The batting lineup set a score of 179 runs as the total but Kolkata Knight Riders easily chased down that target.
Delhi Capitals had another embarrassing loss in the previous contest against Chennai Super Kings. Chennai Super Kings set a target of 167 runs and Delhi Capitals failed to achieve it. They could only reach 140 runs as the total.
