Delhi Capitals (DC) will go up against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Wednesday (April 20) in Match No. 32 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. Both sides are coming to this fixture after losing their respective encounters.
The DC, led by Rishabh Pant, got off to a mixed start in IPL 2022. They have won two and lost three matches, which forced them to sit eighth on the points table, only above Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI). The PBKS, on the other hand, have won three and lost three, and are placed seventh on the table.
The PBKS skipper Mayank Agarwal missed their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, where they were beaten by seven wickets. He is expected to return against the DC with an aim to get back the winning momentum. The DC, meanwhile, will be hoping to stage a better bowling show collectively.
While the DC lost to RCB by 16 runs in their last match, the PBKS lost to SRH by seven wickets before coming to this fixture.
Head to Head
The two sides have met 28 times in the past. While the DC have won 13 times so far, the PBKS have had the last laugh on 15 occasions.
Delhi Capitals: Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Tim Seifert, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed.

Best betting tip
Both sides boast of having a bunch of power-hitters, and the contest is expected to be a high-scoring one. So, even if a side manages to win the match chasing down, it is unlikely that they would restrict the others under 170.
The DC, considering their recent failures, will be desperate to snatch a win against the PBKS. They are well aware of having one of the strongest squads on paper and will be seeking to reflect the fact with results. So, our prediction will be in favour of the Rishabh Pant and Co.
