Delhi Capitals take on Punjab Kings (DC vs PBKS) in the 32nd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai will host this fixture.
Deli Capitals are coming off a 16-run defeat at the hands of RCB in their previous game. Chasing 190, David Warner (66) and skipper Rishabh Pant (34) kept them in the game. However, they were held at 173/7 eventually, falling short of the target in the end.
On the other hand, Punjab Kings also suffered a loss in their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Liam Livingstone’s fifty took them to 150. Although, it was not going to be enough to defend as Hyderabad got home comfortably with seven wickets to spare.
Thus, both sides will look to get back to winning ways in this game.

It is a flat track where batsmen are able to play their strokes freely. The ball comes onto the bat nicely and fast bowlers have generally struggled with no assistance for them from the surface. Spinners have enjoyed better records as the wicket is offering turn. Chasing is a good option here.
DC vs PBKS Match Prediction
Both the sides have a power-packed batting unit. There are some good spinners on either side as well, which will make it a thrilling contest. However, it is the pace bowling where Punjab Kings take the edge with Rabada and Arshdeep, who can trouble the Delhi batters. Thus, Punjab have a better chance of winning this game.
