At the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Stadium in Dharamsala on Wednesday, Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Delhi Capitals (DC) square off. PBKS are currently eighth out of ten teams in the IPL 2023, but they have maintained their playoff position.
But to have the best chance, they must triumph in both of their remaining games.
Punjab triumphed by 31 runs over Delhi Capitals (DC) in their most recent match. DC, on the other hand, is no longer in the playoff hunt. Just four of the bottom-ranked team’s twelve games have ended in victories.
Let’s take a look at 3 players who can take the most wickets in the match as the two teams prepare to face off against one another
Kagiso Rabada: We anticipate Kagiso Rabada to appear for the crucial match because the weather in Dharamshala is predicted to be favourable for pacers. The PBKS star has participated in four matches so far in the IPL 2023 and taken five wickets, averaging 31.20 and 91.75%, respectively.
In two games against his former team, the 27-year-old South African speedster took one wicket at an economy rate of 9.83 and an average of 59.
Arshdeep Singh: In the upcoming game, Punjab Kings will rely heavily on the left-arm pacer. With an average of 27 and an economy rate of 9 points 63, he has taken 16 wickets in 12 games. Right now, Arshdeep shares a fifth place in the tournament in terms of wickets taken.
In his most recent match against DC, he conceded 32 runs in four overs while going without a wicket. He has played against Delhi in five games overall, taking four wickets at an average of 34.50 and 9.20, respectively.
