Injuries and unavailability have hit Delhi Capitals hard in their initial phase. But even the availability of their foreign players (like Anirich Nortje, Rovman Powell, Mitchell Marsh) didn’t help much. While the foreign batsmen are struggling to survive increase for a long time, bowlers are leaking runs significantly in death overs.
And with the recent COVID-19 hit in the squad, Mitchell Marsh is ruled out for a while, leaving the No.3 spot empty yet again. DC might call up Tim Seifert or Anirich Nortje back to fill this, and have a good time again.
Punjab Kings on the other hand isn’t having a good time either, winning three out of six players in total. Few of the losses were so unlucky, and directly because of the weak death bowling. Hoping to improve this, here’s what tonight’s teams may look like;

DC vs PBKS Dream 11 Predictions for IPL 2022
Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (wk), Liam Livingstone, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, and Khaleel Ahmed.
Setting Prithvi Shaw or Liam Livingstone as captain and Rahul Chahar or David Warner as vice-captain is recommended.
Even though dew isn’t playing many roles in the second innings, with most matches won by teams batting first recently, either of the captains will want to bat second on winning the toss. Both the teams have faced 28 times each other in IPL, with Punjab Kings leading the count slightly 15-13.
