Punjab vs Delhi who will win: Both the North Indian teams are in urgent need of an Indian Premier League victory.

The 64th match of the ongoing 15th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy tonight.

Readers must note that both Punjab and Delhi have 12 points to their name on the back of winning and losing six matches each out of the 12 that they’ve played this season. However, it is DC’s better NRR (Net Run Rate) which sees them on the fifth position on the points table as compared to PBKS’ seventh.

Out of Kings’ four previous matches at this venue, they have won and lost two each including two wins and a loss this season. Capitals, on the other hand, have won two and lost three (including a win and two losses this season) out of their five Navi Mumbai T20s.

Although by the slightest of margins, Punjab have an upper hand over Delhi in their encounters against each other over the years. That being said, DC have managed to beat PBKS on four out of the last five occasions.

The aforementioned neck and neck record between both these teams makes it really difficult to pick a winner for this particular match. Readers must note that both these teams are coming on the back of three wins and two losses to have the same current form.

Barring the category of last five matches against each other, Kings dominating in the above mentioned head-to-head record against each other make them slight favourites for this match which is expected to be a close encounter.
