It will be the second game of the doubleheader and one could expect a cracker of a contest. Delhi Capitals are fixing their loopholes as they are going ahead in the tournament. Prithvi Shaw’s sensational knock has made them a top-heavy side with Rishabh Pant to follow.

Shimron Hetmyer’s return to form will give a lot of confidence to DC as they would be keen to post a big total against Punjab. Despite the absence of Ashwin, the bowling has done well so far in the tournament. Avesh Khan’s good run with the ball meant Delhi don’t need the services of Anrich Nortje for now.

A win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last game would give Punjab Kings a lot of confidence going ahead in the tournament. The likes of KL Rahul,  Chris Gill showed class as they would look to continue their good run.
