Match: Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals IPL 2022 Match 64
Venue: Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai
Date & Time: May 16, 7:30 PM
The DY Patil Academy wicket has something for both batters and bowlers. The new ball moves slightly, but as the batters become more comfortable on the wicket, the stroke-making becomes easier. Given the dew factor, the skipper who wins the toss may want to field first.
Probable Playing XIs for PBKS vs DC
Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Mayank Agarwal (c), Jitesh Sharma (wk), Liam Livingstone, Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Harpreet Brar, Arshdeep Singh
David Warner, Srikar Bharat/Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Chetan Sakariya, Anrich Nortje
Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the Match: Jonny Bairstow
After a string of poor performances, Englishman Jonny Bairstow has roared back to form with two consecutive fifties. The right-handed batter completely destroyed the RCB bowling attack in the previous match and will be looking to replicate his performance in the upcoming match as well.
Probable best bowler of the Match: Chetan Sakariya
Chetan Sakariya, a left-arm pacer, took two crucial wickets and conceded only 23 runs in his four-over quota against RR. The 24-year-old is capable of extracting massive swing from the new ball and will be looking to take some crucial wickets for his team in the upcoming match.
