The last game between Punjab and Delhi was a one-sided joy for the Rishabh Pant’s unit. The Delhi bowling department showed pure class to bundle out the Kings for 115 runs in the first innings. Khaleel Ahmed, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav scalped two wickets and did not let Punjab’s top order get out of the shell.
Skipper Mayank Agarwal and Jitesh Sharma were the only batters to cross the 20-run mark. The opening pair of the Capitals almost had the job done as Prithvi Shaw scored 41 off 20 balls and David Warner registered 60 of 30 deliveries. After Shaw’s dismissal, Shahrukh Khan joined Warner and both snatched the victory in 11 overs.
Both sides are coming off a win in their previous games. While Punjab beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by a comfortable margin of 54 runs, the explosive knock of Mitchell Marsh helped Delhi to chase down a decent 161 against Rajasthan Royals. As we have already entered the final lap of the campaign, it is surely a must-win battle for both the teamsteams.
