In game 64 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, Delhi Capitals will fly to Dharamshala to take on Punjab Kings.
In order to maintain their chances of making the playoffs, PBKS must win all of their remaining games.
Their players will experience a major moment, and the battles they have with DC’s superstars will garner more attention.
Here’s some key players battle
1. Shikhar Dhawan vs Ishant Sharma
In the IPL, Shikhar Dhawan has 675 runs scored against DC. But Ishant Sharma, who will have the new ball, will be his main opponent.
Ishant has twice given him the boot in six IPL innings, whereas Dhawan has only scored 36 runs in 30 balls against him.
In nine innings of the IPL 2023, he has fallen four times in the Powerplay (SR: 137.86)
2. Kuldeep Yadav vs Liam Livingstone
Kuldeep Yadav previously fired Liam Livingstone, and DC might repeat the move. Livingstone has had trouble batting against leggies in middle innings.
He has been victimized seven times in 17 IPL innings against leggies and has a strike rate of 117.64 percent. The middle overs (7–16) have produced nine of Kuldeep’s ten wickets so far this season.
3. Sam Curran vs David Warner
In the IPL, David Warner has a tremendous record against PBKS, scoring 1,059 runs. Sam Curran will try to get rid of the DC captain right away while the DC captain will try to make a fiery start.
Warner has been shut down by Curran once in five IPL innings, preventing him from scoring at will. The Australian dasher has a pitiful strike rate of 102.56 against Curran.
4. Arshdeep Singh vs Axar Patel
As a finisher this year, Axar Patel has been crucial for DC. He has scored 130 runs in the final overs (17-20), placing him fourth among all scorers during this period.
He will be competing with Arshdeep Singh, one of India’s best death bowlers, in the interim. This season, the southpaw has claimed seven wickets in the dying stages. While picking crucial wickets, he also allowed runs to be scored.
