May 15, 2022

Punjab will take on Delhi in the 64th match of the Indian T20 League 2022 on Monday at DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. Delhi convincingly won the encounter when these two sides met each other previously this season.

Both the teams have played 12 games and won six each. However, Delhi stands in fifth place due to a better net run rate. On the other hand, Punjab stands seventh on the points table. They are coming off a win and would be looking to continue the winning momentum.

Team Updates

Delhi

The Rishabh Pant-led team is coming off a great win in their last match against Rajasthan. Mitchell Marsh and David Warner led Delhi to an easy eight-wicket victory. In a great positive for the team, Prithvi Shaw might return to the team at the top of the order. The team will aim to win both of its remaining games in order to finish in the top four.

However, for that to happen, the team will have to keep their batting form intact. The Delhi team have not won two games in a row this season. They would look to change that norm in the next game. The team would only look to make one change in the XI. Prithvi Shaw might come in for Srikar Bharat.

Players to watch out for

David Warner- David Warner has been the most consistent player for the Delhi team. He has scored five half-centuries this season and has scored 427 runs in 10 games. He has an average of 61 and a strike rate of 152.5.

Mitchell Marsh- Mitchell Marsh has only played six games for the team this season but has looked excellent. In the last match, he scored 89 runs and helped the team register a comfortable victory. He would look to continue his good form in the next match.

Probable Playing XI

David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Chetan Sakariya, Anrich Nortje

Punjab

Punjab, like their opponents, have not won two games in a row either. They are coming off a victory against Bangalore and will like to make it two in a row this time around. They will also have to keep the net run rate in mind, apart from winning both their remaining games if they are make it to the playoffs. The Men in Red showcased a great batting display in the last match. They would want to replicate a similar performance in the next game.

The Mayank Agarwal-led team aren’t likely to make any changes to their starting lineup against Delhi. They’d want to keep their winning streak going in the following game.

Players to watch out for

Jonny Bairstow- After a slow start to the season, Jonny Bairstow has struck two half-centuries in the previous two games. He would now like to keep the form intact in the next game. He has scored 209 runs in nine games this season.

Arshdeep Singh- Arshdeep Singh has been very impressive, especially at the death. He has bowled with an economy of 7.7, this season. However, he has not taken a lot of wickets this season. Singh has 7 wickets to his name in 12 games. He would hope to pick a few in the next game.

Probable Playing XI

Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Mayank Agarwal (c), Jitesh Sharma (wk), Liam Livingstone, Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Harpreet Brar, Arshdeep Singh
