Match: Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals, Match 29, IPL 2021
Date & Time: 2nd May 2021, at 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad
It will be hot and humid in Ahmedabad with no chances of rain playing a spoilsport.
The surface here at the Narendra Modi Stadium is helping the batsmen more than the bowlers. While the last game here was won by the team batting first, the chasing teams usually get an advantage here.
Punjab Kings will be sweating over Mayank Agarwal’s injury. He suffered a blow on his arm and missed PBKS’s last tie. On the other hand, Amit Mishra is down with a shoulder niggle and missed the last encounter.
Predicted Playing XI
PBKS – KL Rahul (c, wk), Prabhsimran Singh/Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran/Dawid Malan, Deepak Hooda, Shahrukh Khan, Harpreet Brar, Chris Jordan, Riley Meredith/Jhye Richardson, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami.
DC – Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant (c,wk), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav/Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan.
PBKS vs DC – Top Fantasy Picks
Shikhar Dhawan – The southpaw has started the 2021 season right from where he left the 2020 edition. He has scored 40+ runs in three of his last five games, which includes a sublime knock of 92 runs against this very opponent, Punjab Kings. Dhawan will be a key contender for the fantasy gamers.
Axar Patel – The all-rounder from Gujarat has got off to a brilliant start, as he has picked up at least one wicket in all the matches he has played in this season. He picked up 2 wickets in the last game. He will be a good option for the fantasy picks.
Ravi Bishnoi – The young leg-spinner is proving why it was a mistake to bench him in the first few games. He has picked up 4 wickets in his three IPL 2021 matches and has conceded less than 25 runs in all of those games.
