DC vs PBKS VIVO IPL 2021 Match 11 Preview:
The eleventh game of VIVO IPL 2021 and the second game of the double-header on Sunday will be played between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Punjab Kings (PBKS). Both the teams have played two games in this season by far out of which both of them have won one of their games while lost the other.
Delhi Capitals started its VIVO IPL 2021 campaign on a positive note and defeated the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) convincingly in the first game. While in the last game against Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals failed to defend a below-par total in a last-over thriller. In the last game, after being invited to bat first, Delhi Capitals posted a total of 147 runs on the board.
Openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw failed to get a two-digit score. Experienced batsman Ajinkya Rahane also departed for just 8 runs while all-rounder Marcus Stoinis got out for a duck. Despite the lack of support from the other end, skipper Rishabh Pant played a cracking inning of 51 runs off 32 deliveries and became a victim of run-out in an unfortunate way.
With the help of cameo innings from lower-order batsmen Lalit Yadav and Tom Curran, the team reached a respectable total. While defending this total, the bowlers of Delhi Capitals started well and got the first few wickets pretty quickly. But the bowlers of Delhi Capitals were unable to stand against the perseverance of David Miller and Chris Morris, and Delhi Capitals lost the match in the final over.
The notable bowling performances were 3 wickets from Avesh Khan and two wickets each from Kagiso Rabada and Chris Woakes. The Delhi Capitals must be expecting for contribution from top-order batsmen in this match.
Talking about Punjab Kings, this team won its first game against Rajasthan Royals but lost its second game against Chennai Super Kings due to the collapse of the top batting order. In the second game, after being invited to bat first, the opener Mayank Agarwal once again failed to deliver and departed for a duck in the very first over.
Captain KL Rahul was unlucky and got run out in an unfortunate manner. In the middle-order, Deepak Hooda and Chris Gayle scored 10 runs each while Nicholas Pooran also got out on a duck to make the situations even worse for the side. With the help of 47 runs off 36 deliveries from youngster Shahrukh Khan, the team reached a small total of 106 runs.
In the bowling department, Mohammad Shami picked two wickets while Arshdeep Singh and Murugan Ashwin got one wicket each to their names but failed to defend this low total as expected. The team management will expect the top and middle order to deliver with the bat in this crucial contest.
Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings have faced each other on 26 occasions out of which 11 were won by Delhi while Punjab got 15 games to their name.

Shikhar Dhawan is in good form but failed to score in the second game against Rajasthan and must be looking to make a comeback in this game. He has 94 runs to his tally in the two games he has played so far.
Prithvi Shaw looked in terrific touch in the first game and can make a huge impact once again in this match. He scored 72 off 38 balls in the game against Chennai Super Kings to help his side with an excellent start.
