Delhi Capitals (DC) were back to winning ways in the IPL 2022 after a convincing victory against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) by 9 wickets on Wednesday at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.  Explosive knocks from openers David Warner and Prithvi Shaw secured a comfortable victory for the team with over 9 overs to spare after a complete effort from the DC bowlers restricted PBKS to 115. Among the DC bowlers, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Khaleel Ahmed, and Lalit Yadav scalped two wickets each.

With four wins and two defeats, Rajasthan Royals are sitting at the third spot with a net run rate of (+0.380), while Delhi Capitals are sitting at sixth position with three wins in six games. Delhi’s net run rate is +0.942, which is the best amongst all 10 teams.

Delhi Capitals have won the last six out of seven games against Rajasthan Royals, and this would add to their confidence. For Delhi Capitals, Aussie opener David Warner is striking the ball well and he would like to provide an electrifying start with Prithvi Shaw who played a great cameo in the last game against Punjab. Rishabh Pant, Sarfaraz Khan, and Rovman Powell make it a steady middle order and they will need to set the stage for the finishers to do well.

In Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, and Shardul Thakur the side enjoys good depth in the batting department. Shardul Thakur struggled in the last game and the side should hand the new ball to Mustafizur Rahman and Khaleel Ahmed who have done well. Spinner Axar Patel has been the pick of the bowlers for the side and along with Kuldeep Yadav form a very strong pair. The side would like to see Shardul Thakur bowl well in the death overs as the Royals have good hitters of the ball.
