DC vs PBKS Predicted power-play scores:
Delhi Capitals’ hard-hitting man David Warner is in good form and will look to take the batting pitch advantage by scoring well during the power play overs. With Prithvi Shaw back in the squad after recovering from typhoid DC team is looking strong and both the openers hold the ability to score massive runs in the first six overs. DC can score somewhere around 40-45 runs.
While Punjab Kings Jonny Bairstow also showed his class when he thrashed RCB bowlers and guide his team to 83 runs during power play overs. He has a reliable batting partner, on the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan, and if they both play as per their caliber they might score 55-60 runs during a power play.
DC vs PBKS Predicted death overs scores:
The DY Patil Stadium’s wicket is ideal for batting and both team batters will try to score as many runs as possible during the death overs. The batters in both DC and PBKS have the talent to smash big hits in the final four overs and considering that we can assume both sides might score 45-50 runs in the last four overs.
DC vs PBKS Predicted overall score:
Delhi Capitals mainly rely on their first three, though they have big hitters down the order if their openers failed to give them a good start and their middle-order batters play averagely then they can reach somewhere around 160-170. Punjab King’s strength is their batting and except for the skipper, Mayank Agarwal all are in good form, so they can put 180-190 runs on board if batted first.

DC Vs PBKS Today Match Prediction:
The fifth-placed Delhi Capitals, who won 5 out 12 games so far in this season, have a slight edge over the even confident Punjab side, as Delhi has a more balanced side than the Kings, especially the bowling lineup, but if Punjab bowlers play as they played against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last game when they stopped RCB at just 154 and hand Punjab a 54 run victory, then Punjab might have a chance to win this match.
