Indian Premier League 2021 – DC vs PBKS 11th T20 – Delhi Capitals vs Punjab Kings at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Fantasy Preview –
Delhi Capitals have had a mixed start to their IPL 2021 campaign. Although they started with a bang against the Chennai Super Kings, the Capitals fell short against the Rajasthan Royals. However, they weren’t at full strength in both games, which won’t be the case against Punjab. With a power-packed batting unit at their disposal, the Delhi Capitals will fancy another win in IPL 2021.
Punjab Kings also won their first IPL 2021 fixture, only to come second-best in their second. However, the Kings have shown promise, with the likes of Shahrukh Khan and Deepak Hooda impressing with the bat. The same cannot be said about their bowling, which has looked a touch wayward. Much will depend on Mohammed Shami, who has been impressed with the ball. But he will have his hands full against the Delhi Capitals.
Although both teams look very evenly matched on paper, the Capitals have the edge, given their top-heavy batting unit. With both sides looking to return to winning ways, we are in for a riveting IPL 2021 contest in Mumbai.
Pitch Report –
After a couple of high-scoring games at Wankhede in the first round of fixtures, the pitch has favored the bowlers, especially the pacers. The swing is available off the surface, it makes the first couple of overs a must-see affair for the batsmen, who will need to bide their time in the middle before unfurling their attacking instincts. Although the spinners aren’t expected to get much turn off the surface, variations in pace can serve them well. With it being an evening fixture, both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, given the dew factor. 160-170 should be a competitive total at the venue, but both teams are capable of breaching the 180-mark.

Tactics and player match-ups:
R Ashwin has dismissed Chris Gayle 5 times and Mayank Agarwal 3 times. So there is a chance that he could open the bowling for DC.
Anrich Nortje’s sheer pace will be hard to ignore for DC.
Considering that taking the pace off seems to be working well in Wankhede, Chris Jordan could be better suited than Riley Meredith.
