Preview

It is Punjab taking on table-toppers Delhi in the next fixture of the Indian T20 League. Punjab are back on track with two wins in their last two matches. They managed to get through Mumbai in arguably the best T20 match in history. They are now sitting at sixth position with all the bottom four teams with 6 points. 

It looks like they finally got their best combination with players like Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran playing big shots in the middle overs. Especially the addition of Chris Gayle has given them a real boost in their batting order. Their bowling has been equally good but still needs improvement at the death overs. However, to remain alive in the tournament they need to win every game from here and looking good with the momentum.

On the other side, Delhi is knocking the door of qualification to the playoffs stage and can be the first team to get there. They have been at their best so far with both batting and bowling. Shikhar Dhawan’s century and a little cameo from Axar Patel at the end, sealed the win for them against Chennai. Their bowling has been the best in the tournament than any other side with Rabada leading the charts of the wicket-taking list. However, they are expected to step in with the same XI and add another two points in their bag.
