Delhi vs Punjab Pitch Report for Today’s Match
The last game at the Brabourne Stadium produced a century and a hat-trick. The pitch could not be flatter, and yet Yuzvendra Chahal proved that a bowler can deceive a batter in any given condition.

Power Players for Delhi vs Punjab Match
Liam Livingstone has scored three fifties in six games, but all these knocks came in the first innings. He wouldn’t bat any differently in the second innings: he likes to go bonkers irrespective of the match situation. If the conditions demand, he can also roll his arm over. He has two wickets at 11 to his name.
Another batter who falls in the same category is Prithvi Shaw. He has scored the bulk of the runs for Delhi: 176 runs with a strike rate of 164.
Kuldeep Yadav has silenced all the critics with his consistent and courageous bowling. With 11 wickets at 14, he is the third-highest wicket-taker.
David Warner, like Kuldeep, too has made amends for the lost opportunity in the previous season. He collected consecutive 60-plus scores, setting a solid base for the middle-order to exploit.
Smart Picks for Delhi vs Punjab Match
Barring Delhi’s opening game, Rishabh Pant has been a part of the Ultimate Team on My11Circle. He has scored 144 runs at an impressive average of 36.
Shikhar Dhawan has four scores above 30 runs in six games. His average has not dropped below 30 since the 2015 season.
Rahul Chahar has gone wicketless only once in six games. Overall, he has taken 9 wickets and maintained an economy of 7.2.
Khaleel Ahmed’s 8 of 5 wickets have come in the powerplay. Along with his natural in-swinger, he has now learnt to take the ball away from a right-hander.
Mayank Agarwal won the Player of the Match award for his half-century, two catches and a run-out against Mumbai. After a hat-trick of low scores, the innings must have boosted his confidence.
Shardul Thakur has been a better batter than a bowler for a year or so in shorter formats. He has hit five sixes in as many games. His highest score reads 29*.
Delhi vs Punjab Match Preview
Punjab’s three wins have been convincing, but they still have a few chinks in their armour. On the other hand, Delhi have lacked teeth and on most occasions failed to play as a cohesive team.
