PBKS vs DC HIGHLIGHTS

RESULT: DC WINS BY 17 RUNS

PUNJAB KINGS INNINGS

PBKS 142/9 in 20 overs: Chahar hammers one down long-off to pick a boundary. Warner's dropped his third for the night. Worse, it is a dolly on this occasion. He has a wry smile pasted on his lips... at least they are winning this. It is the first time DC has won back-to-back games this season.

PBKS 134/9 in 19 overs: Dropped! Arshdeep muscles one straight to Thakur at backward point but it explodes through.

PBKS 131/9 in 18 overs: Powell undoes the fielding horrors from earlier tonight by leaping and lobbing the ball back in to save what would surely have been a maximum. Warner takes a blinder to send Jitesh back into the hut. Thakur bowls two wides on the trot. Rabada holes out to Powell after clobbering a six off the previous ball.

PBKS 121/7 in 17 overs: Khaleel pitches one outside Chahar's hitting arc. Pant signals him to persist with the same length. Chahar bludgeons a four and six off back-to-back balls.

PBKS 109/7 in 16 overs: Thakur has a long conversation with Pant ahead of the over. However, Jitesh has smoked the first delivery out of the ground. A bouncer's been called the first of the over. Wide hasn't been signalled.

PBKS 101/7 in 15 overs: A leading edge off Chahar's blade lobs over beyond the ring to land safe. Jitesh reaches for the bouncer and tonks Khaleel for a six over deep backward square leg.

PBKS 89/7 in 14 overs: Jitesh nudges a single to backward point. Lalit has a shy at the sticks with Jitesh not even in the frame. A direct hit would have seen him walk. Another top-edge off a bouncer runs down to the fence.

Strategic timeout

PBKS 82/7 in 13 overs: Rishi goes for the sweep, fishing at a delivery outside the line of the fifth stump. However, it crashes into the sticks. Chahar comes to the crease.

PBKS 80/6 in 12 overs: Oh, Rovman! After getting shouted at by Kuldeep for a misfield, which sees the batter run one extra, he messes up at the boundary at long-on again.

PBKS 70/6 in 11 overs: Rishi and Jitesh do not take any undue risk as Axar concedes only two runs.

PBKS 68/6 in 10 overs: Kuldeep returns to take another! The googly crashes into the stumps. There may have been a feather on it off Brar's blade. Warner has dropped another. Dives across at short cover and the ball just pops out.

PBKS 66/5 in 9 overs: Dropped! Warner dives and gets his left hand to it but it bursts through.

PBKS 61/5 in 8 overs: Spinners to operate in tandem, Kuldeep comes into the attack. Kuldeep and Pant do to Livingstone what the English all-rounder did to Pant. Loops one up, Livingstone skips down the track, gets beaten. Pant waits for Livingstone to turn back before whipping the bails off.

PBKS 59/4 in 7 overs: Axar's arm ball keeps low and sneaks past Mayank's bat to disturb the Zings. That'll be Axar's 100th wicket in IPL. Kumble, back in the dugout, doesn't look very happy. Jitesh pulls one over midwicket for four.

PBKS 54/3 in 6 overs: Shardul comes into the attack. His first ball is short and wide and Dhawan makes the most of the opportunity. Frees his arms and slices it down the backward point region. A top-edge flies over the 'keeper's head now. Rajapaksa runs out of luck off the very next ball as the scrambled seam gets the better of him. Miscues to Nortje at backward point. Dhawan nicks! Thakur strikes again. Pant holds on to a comfortable catch behind the sticks.

PBKS 44/1 in 5 overs: Pant goes upstairs to review an LBW appeal that was turned down on the field. Looked to be too high. Ball tracker shows it would have just gone on to clip the top of off stump. Dhawan smashes a pull down midwicket for four. Yes and nos and both the batters end up on the same side. However, Lalit messes up the throw and ends up gifting a run instead.

PBKS 38/1 in 4 overs: Bairstow goes after Nortje again, pulling one behind square for four. The South African quick oversteps. Bairstow backs away and carves a boundary through point off the free-hit. And finally! Delhi gets the first wicket. Muted celebrations from the team as Bairstow picks out Axar in the bigger pocket of the ground.

PBKS 27/0 in 3 overs: A cracking maximum from Bairstow! Khaleel bowls it in the slot and the England batter gets one to land onto the covered tarps at cow corner. Khaleel shares a light moment with Dhawan, as he clatters into the Punjab opener. Dhawan finds the boundary at mid-on.

PBKS 14/0 in 2 overs: A length ball from Nortje has been pulled behind square for four.

PBKS 6/0 in 1 over: Bairstow dabs one through point for four to open Punjab's account. Khaleel asks a few tough questions of Bairstow, while mixing up his line and lengths.

Bairstow and Dhawan come to the crease. Khaleel has the new ball in hand.

TARGET: PBKS NEEDS 160 TO WIN

DELHI CAPITALS INNINGS

DC 159/7 in 20 overs: Arshdeep starts off with a yorker. Tries to go for another but ends up sending in a low full toss. Shardul holes out to Brar at long-on. Kuldeep saunters in. Seven off the last over.

DC 152/6 in 19 overs: Marsh, looking to go over midwicket, has been beaten for pace. Rishi runs in from deep midwicket to pouch this comfortably. Mayank goes upstairs to review a call for caught-behind. Replays show the ball took a piece of Axar's thigh pad en route to the 'keeper's gloves.

DC 149/5 in 18 overs: Marsh greets Arshdeep with a swivel-pull that sees the ball race away to the boundary. Arshdeep errs in line, angles a fuller one into the pads as Marsh picks up four leg byes. Four more! This was a low full toss from Arshdeep, Shikhar goes for the catch but misses as the ball rolls down to the rope.

DC 134/5 in 17 overs: Marsh rocks back and whacks Brar through cover for four to bring up his fifty. Axar gets a boundary through the midwicket region off the last ball.

DC 123/5 in 16 overs: Axar leans in and creams a drive past the fielder stationed at long-off. Livingstone concedes a wide, pitched way outside off.

Strategic timeout

DC 116/5 in 15 overs: Chahar bowls out with an economical over. A single off it as he finishes with figures of 4-0-19-0.

DC 115/5 in 14 overs: Livingstone has another! Shikhar sprints to his right from long-off to settle underneath a skier from Powell. Out comes the thigh-five. Axar comes to the crease.

DC 109/4 in 13 overs: Chahar bowls a quick, tight over. Only two runs off it.

DC 107/4 in 12 overs: Livingstone is back as Pant enters. He bowls round the wicket to him with a slip in place. The 'keeper-batter gets off the mark with a single straightaway. Marsh gets lucky as he almost ends up falling to a return catch. It drops just short. After Pant clobbers a one-handed six, he's been stumped as Livingstone slips it wide as the Delhi skipper dances down the track to go big again.

DC 98/3 in 11 overs: Marsh powers Arshdeep's slot ball down long-on. Did not get it off the meat of the bat but Shikhar can only watch it sail into the crowd. Mayank's punt bears fruit! The softest of dismissals sees the back of Lalit. A slower ball, Lalit chases but ends up ramping it to Rajapaksa at backward point.

DC 86/2 in 10 overs: The run-rate has dropped down a fair bit since the departure of Sarfaraz. It wasn't clear as to why Pant wasn't sent ahead of Lalit. A tidy over from Brar comes to an end.

DC 82/2 in 9 overs: Lalit gets down on one knee and dispatches Chahar into the stands at deep midwicket. Eight off the over.

Strategic timeout

DC 74/2 in 8 overs: There is an appeal from Rishi for LBW. Mayank isn't interested in a DRS. Replays show a massive inside edge onto the pads.

DC 67/2 in 7 overs: Chahar's short ball has been cut square of the wicket by Marsh for four. There are shouts of "Catch it!" as Marsh miscues a hit over extra cover but this lands safely.

DC 59/2 in 6 overs: Rabada returns. Lalit and Marsh pick up a single each before a snorter clips Lalit's gloves and helmet before running down to the fence. Physio Patrick Farhart rushes out for the mandatory concussion test.

Arshdeep Singh

DC 53/2 in 5 overs: Arshdeep into the attack and is punished with a four first ball. Full toss to Sarfaraz outside off and swept away to the mid-wicket boundary. Slower one next up outside off, Sarfaraz gets a nick on it trying to slash and it goes to the keeper on the bounce. Pulled away, miscued and falls just beyond the fielder at mid-wicket and outside the circle; two runs. Huge swing and a miss by Sarfaraz outside off next ball. Sarfaraz was living a bit dangerously this over and finally his luck runs out. He goes down the ground, but it goes high and not far enough and a good catch at long-on. GONE! Lalit pulls this and Bairstow takes good one at the fine-leg fence. But the buzzer goes off and it is a no-ball. Lalit survives and whips the free-hit for a single at deep mid-wicket.

DC 45/1 in 4 overs: Rishi Dhawan comes into the attack. Straight on a length and Marsh defends it back to the bowler with a straight bat. Width outside off and Marsh slashes this to deep point for a single. A bit risky from Sarfaraz but four runs. Slower one on a length just outside off and carved away, a bit aerially, behind point for a boundary. Cheeky this time and four runs again. Sarfaraz scoops this over the keeper with his head buried inside his chest. Dabbed away to short-third, where Arshdeep misses the ball but keeps it from going to the boundary with an unintentional save with his boot. Single and dot to end the over.

DC 35/1 in 3 overs: Brar replaces Livingstone.  Just a single off the first three balls. Sarfaraz break the shackles with a slog sweep over mid-wicket boundary. Tossed up around off and Sarfaraz gets down in a jiffy before sweeping the daylights out of this. This is a half-tracker and Sarfaraz with a backfoot drive through the covers for four runs. Another four to end the over as Brar goes full on the pads and Sarfaraz sweeps it to the fine-leg fence.

DC 20/1 in 2 overs: Rabada to share the new ball. Marsh makes the most of the opportunity as Rabada sends in a half-volley, hitting it through the line and out of the park. He follows it up with another six over midwicket even though Rabada pulls his length back a tad bit.

DC 5/1 in 1 over: What a start! Warner is on his way back for a golden duck. Pitched a bit outside off and Warner has sliced this to backward point. Interestingly, Sarfaraz was initially taking strike. But Warner, after seeing Livingstone gearing up to bowl, asks for a change of ends. Livingstone continues to bowl off-spin even against the right-handed batters.

The umpires are making their way to the middle. Warner and Sarfaraz will open for Delhi. Livingstone to get things underway with the ball for Punjab.

Rishabh Pant: Would have bowled as well. Two changes - Khaleel comes back after injury in place of Sakariya, Sarfaraz comes in for KS Bharat.

Mayank Agarwal: We would like to bowl. I don't think the wicket is going to change much. The last time we played there was dew. We are playing the same team. We have definitely found the right combinations.

PBKS vs DC TOSS

Punjab Kings opts to bowl.

PBKS vs DC PITCH REPORT

"One side is short - 66 meters. That is going to come into play as we have seen good pace and bounce especially in the evening games. The line has to be nice and straight. There is always a lovely grass covering here but underneath it is very dry. You can still see the red soil and you can expect spin to play a part. But as the breeze comes in the short ball has been effective. Both captains will want to chase," reckons Graeme Smith.

PBKS vs DC PREDICTED XI

Punjab Kings: Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Mayank Agarwal (c), Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Harpreet Brar, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh.

PBKS vs DC MATCH PREVIEW

As the race for the Indian Premier League (IPL) playoffs heats up, Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings will be hoping to outdo each other when they meet in a must-win game at the DY Patil Stadium on Monday.

So far, both the teams have been struggling for consistency and further slip-up would dent their chances of making it to the last-four stage. While Delhi Capitals is ranked fifth with a NRR of +0.210, Punjab Kings is at the seventh spot with 12 points in its kitty, and both the teams look confident, having won their last game.

For the Capitals, the batting department will revolve around the in-form David Warner. In the absence of Prithvi Shaw, who just recovered from typhoid, back-up openers Mandeep Singh and K.S. Bharat have struggled and the team needs to quickly fix its top-order woes.

Mitchell Marsh, who impressed in the last outing against Rajasthan Royals, will need to anchor the middle-order, along with Rovman Powell and captain Rishabh Pant. But against Punjab’s quality bowling line-up - comprising Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh - Capitals’ batters will be put to test.

Punjab Kings has some of the top batters in its ranks - Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone and Bhanuka Rajapaksa - and in a crunch game, the team will be expecting them to come good.

Livingstone has been in red-hot form, while Bairstow, too, has regained his touch and a lot will depend on the England duo. It needs to be seen how the Capitals tackle Kings’ big-hitters.
