In the second match of the 2024 Indian Premier League, Punjab Kings will face Delhi Capitals at the Mahara Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur. The game kicks off at 3:30 PM IST on March 23rd.

Anticipate a challenging pitch favoring spin bowlers due to its low-scoring nature. However, reports suggest that fast bowlers might also benefit from movement off the surface.

PBKS vs DC Dream11 Prediction

In the 2023 IPL season, both Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals had disappointing runs, with Punjab finishing ninth and Delhi eighth. Punjab started strong with two initial wins but struggled to maintain momentum thereafter. For this match, they will rely on their star players to step up to avoid a losing start.

Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals, under coach Ricky Ponting, aim for redemption with the return of skipper Rishabh Pant. His presence adds depth to their batting lineup, offering hope for a turnaround. Despite their previous setback, Delhi boasts considerable talent, particularly in batting, promising a competitive match.

PBKS vs DC Betting Tips

Punjab Kings vs Delhi Capitals – Coin Toss

Since this is the inaugural IPL match at this venue in Mullanpur, both captains are likely to adopt a cautious approach. Considering the potential uncertainty surrounding the playing surface, our prediction leans towards both skippers opting to field first if they win the toss.

PBKS vs DC Who Will Win?

With just one match preceding this game in the tournament, anticipation is high. The return of Rishabh Pant will undoubtedly dominate the narrative, drawing attention from broadcasters and fans alike. With Pant at the helm, there’s a strong belief that Delhi Capitals will emerge victorious. While Punjab Kings boasts diverse bowling options, concerns linger regarding the strength of their batting lineup.

Consequently, our prediction favors DELHI CAPITALS TO WIN on Match 2.

PBKS vs DC Top Batters

Punjab Kings’ batting lineup revolves around Liam Livingstone, Shikhar Dhawan, and Jitesh Sharma. Livingstone shoulders the responsibility of providing big hits after a modest run in the previous IPL. Dhawan, known for his aggressive opening, brings a wealth of experience with multiple IPL centuries and half-centuries under his belt.

Delhi Capitals rely on Rishabh Pant, Mitchell Marsh, and David Warner to anchor their batting. Pant boasts an impressive T20 average and a strong strike-rate, complemented by a career-best unbeaten 128. Marsh’s consistency with half-centuries in recent IPL seasons positions him as a top-order mainstay for Delhi.

PBKS vs DC Top Bowler

For Punjab Kings, our bowling lineup focuses on Kagiso Rabada, Harshal Patel, and Arshdeep Singh. Patel brings his knack for taking wickets, having topped the charts in the 2021 IPL. Meanwhile, Rabada, with his impressive career strike rate and substantial wicket tally, aims to strengthen Punjab’s bowling attack.

Delhi Capitals’ bowling strength lies in Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, and Axar Patel. Nortje’s return from injury adds vigor to their pace battery, while Kuldeep’s consistent performances make him a reliable asset. Axar Patel’s spin expertise further strengthens Delhi’s bowling options.
