New Delhi, Online Desk. In the 15th season of the Indian Premier League, the teams for the playoffs have not yet been decided. The team of Punjab Kings is also involved in this race. The team has to play in an important match against Delhi Capitals this evening. A win in this match will mean that the team will strengthen its claim for the plaoff. There is little hope of change in the team’s playing XI.
The Punjab team has benefited tremendously by bringing Shikhar Dhawan and Jani Bairstow together as the opening pair. Both have a lot of experience and are adept at scoring runs at a fast pace. Bairstow played a big innings in the last match, in this important match, the team will expect a big partnership from both.
Captain Mayank Agarwal will now have to play a big innings. Bhanuka Rajapaksa can become difficult for the Delhi bowlers. His role is going to be crucial in the team reaching big scores or chasing big goals. Liam Livingstone is running in amazing form, hardly anyone else has hit his sixes this season. Jitesh has done well in the number of chances he has got this season.
The bowling of this team looks amazing. The team has an experienced fast bowler like Kagiso Rabada, while there is also a young but settled star like Arshdeep. Rishi Dhawan has taken full advantage of the opportunities given to the team in the last few matches. In spin, Rahul Chahar and Harpreet Brar can create trouble for the Delhi batsmen.
Punjab Kings Probable Playing XI
Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow, Bhanuka Rajapakse, Liam Livingstone, Mayank Agarwal (c), Jitesh Sharma (wk), Harpreet Brar, Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh
