  • Consider supporting Shikhar Dhawan as the potential top run-scorer for Punjab Kings against Delhi Capitals, given his impressive record of over 6400 runs in the IPL. Arshdeep Singh, known for his left-arm swing bowling and 45 wickets in the last three IPL seasons, stands out as a likely candidate for Punjab Kings’ leading wicket-taker in the upcoming match.
  • David Warner’s extensive experience, with over 12000 T20 runs, positions him as a strong contender for the highest run-scorer for Delhi Capitals in Match 2. Considering the anticipated turning pitch, Axar Patel emerges as a promising option for Delhi Capitals’ top wicket-taker.
  • In light of David Warner’s consistent performance, including six half-centuries in the IPL 2023 season, he is projected to score over 31.5 runs in this particular fixture.

Toss Predictions

With this being the first IPL game at this venue, we expect both captains will want to see how the pitch plays before batting themselves. Our prediction is that both skippers will choose to field first if they win the toss.

Weather & Pitch Report


The weather looks like being settled and warm throughout Saturday afternoon in Mullanpur. Cloudy conditions are forecast with the temperature in the low 30s.

Pitch Report:

We expect this pitch to be low-scoring with spin bowlers getting plenty of assistance from the surface. That said, reports indicate that there will also be movement off the pitch for the quick bowlers.

Anticipating a lineup featuring prominent English players such as Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, and Sam Curran, despite their current form not being at its peak. Shikhar Dhawan’s squad, reassuringly, faces no injury concerns leading up to this match. 

DC Team News: 

Fans of cricket worldwide will rejoice at the return of Rishabh Pant to IPL 2024 following his absence in the previous tournament due to recovery from a severe car accident in December 2022. However, it’s unfortunate for Delhi Capitals as they will be missing Harry Brook and Lungi Ngidi throughout this IPL season.

Team Combo:

DC Team Info – 

  • The return of Captain Rishabh Pant will be a significant boost for Delhi Capitals, as he missed the previous IPL season due to an accident. Pant has been declared fit by the BCCI for both wicketkeeping and batting duties.
  • Having finished at the 9th position in the previous year, Delhi Capitals are eager to make a mark this season, especially with their captain back in the lineup.

Winning Chances: 

Both Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals will be desperate to get off to a winning start on Saturday afternoon after enduring miserable campaigns in 2023. Punjab Kings certainly have some top players in their side but the team has failed to produce consistent returns for many seasons and there is not much evidence to suggest this year will be different. For Delhi Capitals, the return of Rishabh Pant is providing plenty of excitement and we are backing them to mark his return with a win.

Delhi Capitals to beat Punjab Kings.

Punjab Kings a 89% chance to win this match 

Delhi Capitals have a 11% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Punjab Kings 

Shikhar Dhawan 

The 38 year old left-hander has hit more fours than any other player in the history of the IPL and averaged 41.44 in last year’s tournament.

Jitesh Sharma 

The keeper-batter has caught the eye in both of the last two IPLs with his ability to score quick runs at the end of the innings.

Kagiso Rabada 

The South African right-arm pace bowler has an excellent IPL record and will be looking to make a big impact in the 2024 tournament after making only six appearances last year.

Arshdeep Singh 

The India international bowler is always used at the start and end of innings. He will swing the ball and is also renowned for landing perfect yorkers.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Harpreet Brar, Vidwath Kaverappa, Shashank Singh, Atharva Taide, Ashutosh Sharm 

Left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar will be pushing for a starting XI place in this game and will be the natural slow bowling impact player if required after taking nine IPL wickets last year. Atharva Taide is an exciting left-handed batter who scores his runs quickly and will be a strong option if Punjab Kings need a batting replacement.

Delhi Capitals 

David Warner 

The 37 year old opener was in fine form for Australia in the recent T20I series against West Indies with scores of 81 and 70.

Mitchell Marsh 

The batting all-rounder can lay claim to be one of the most improved players in world cricket over the last four years. He is now recognised as a match-winner with the bat.

Axar Patel 

The left-arm spinner has taken 200 T20 wickets across his career but is also a fine batter with over 2500 runs in the format.

Kuldeep Yadav 

The India all-format international wrist spinner has been in exceptional form with both the red and white ball. We expect him to enjoy the surface in this game.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Abishek Porel (wk), Ricky Bhui, Yash Dhull, Vicky Ostwal, Ishant Sharm 

With a player of Ishant Sharma’s experience in the squad, it would not be a surprise if he was brought in as the impact substitute to provide control with the ball. 21 year old right-handed top order batter Yash Dhull has been in fine form and would make for an excellent impact player with the bat.

Team Forms: 

PBKS Team Form: 

Punjab Kings ended last season in disappointing form with only one victory from their last five matches.

DC Team Form: 

With three defeats from their final four games in the 2023 IPL, Delhi Capitals will be very keen to get this campaign underway.
