The Punjab team will take on the Delhi team in the 64th match of the Indian Playerzpot League 2023 at PCA IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on 17th May, Wednesday. Punjab are having a decent campaign, while Delhi has had a disappointing outing this season thus far. Punjab has registered six wins and as many losses, and are at the eighth spot with 12 points after 12 games. S Dhawan-led side is still in contention for the playoffs. Delhi, meanwhile, are the first team to be knocked out of the season in the league stage. D Warner-led side has won four games and lost eight matches and are currently at the top of the table with 8 points after 12 games.

Punjab and Delhi will lock horns with each other for the second time in the ongoing season of the Indian Playerzpot League. In their last encounter, Punjab defeated Delhi by 31 runs. Two sides have met each other 31 times in the tournament’s history, with Punjab leading 16-15. In the upcoming match, Punjab will look to increase their playoff chances, and Delhi will hope to end the season by winning the last two games.

Players to watch out for

#1 P Singh (Punjab): P Singh has been one of the most improved players of the Indian Playerzpot League 2023. The 22-year-old has been performing well compared to the previous four seasons. In the previous match against Delhi, P Singh notched up his maiden century of the tournament, scoring 103 off 65 balls at a strike rate of 158.46. This season, he has aggregated 334 runs, including a century and a fifty, at an average of 27.83 and a strike rate of 153.92. P Singh is an attacking top-order batsman who can score quick runs in the powerplay and accelerate innings in the middle overs. He performed well when they needed him the most. P Singh will look to emulate his performance from the previous game and Delhi will have a task cut out to stop him from scoring runs.

#2 D Warner (Punjab): Delhi’s batting line-up has been over-reliant on D Warner’s batting in the ongoing edition of the tournament. When he failed to deliver at the top, the team’s batting line-up would be collapsed. In the previous match against Punjab, Warner scored 54 off 27 balls at a strike rate of 200. After his dismissal, no batter was able to stabilize the innings. This season, the 36-year-old has aggregated 384 runs, including five half-centuries, at an average of 32 and a strike rate of 126.73. Warner has been lacking his natural style of playing and his strike rate has also been questioned. Oftentimes, the burden of top-order relies on D. Warner as he lacks support. Warner will look to carry the burden of the top order on his shoulder again and perform well in the upcoming match against Punjab.

#3 H Brar (Punjab): H Brar sprung a surprise with his brilliant bowling in the previous match against Delhi, scalping four wickets while conceding 30 runs at an economy rate of 7.50 in four overs. Brar’s bowling line-up was enough to trigger a collapse in Delhi’s batting line-up. This season, he has scalped nine wickets at an average of 19.89 and an economy rate of 7.41. He picked wickets in the previous matches for Punjab, but his performance against Delhi was crucial as Punjab are fighting for a playoff spot. H Brar is a spin bowler who can bowl in different variations which left Delhi batsmen bamboozled. He can also deliver in good line and length. Brar will look to deliver his best again in the upcoming match against Delhi.

#4 K Yadav (Delhi): K Yadav is having a decent outing in the ongoing season of the Indian Playerzpot League. Though he has been struggling to take wickets, he is one of the wicket-taking options for Delhi alongside I Sharma and A Patel. In the previous match against Punjab, the 28-year-old scalped a wicket while conceding 32 runs at an economy rate of 8 in four overs. This season, K Yadav scalped 10 wickets at an average of 30.60 and an economy rate of 7.12 in 12 matches so far. K Yadav is a wrist spinner than just merely a spin bowler and can bowl in different variations that have often left the batsmen difficult to judge the ball. K Yadav will look to better his previous performance in the upcoming match against Punjab.
