Indian T20 League 2021: Punjab vs Delhi, Match Prediction Predicted XI | Fantasy Picks

Punjab and Delhi will fight out in the second clash of Sunday in the Indian T20 League Both had a good start to the season but suffered defeat in the next game. 
Punjab enters in each game with some concern. When they finished the first game, bowlers let them down despite having a 4-run victory against Rajasthan. Now, after playing the second game, questions are on their batting. Punjab scored only 106 against Chennai on a pure flat track. Expecting 106 in Mumbai is a surprising thing as we saw a big chase from Rajasthan on same ground when they almost chased down 221.

Top-order couldn’t survive against the new ball and Chahar trapped them in swing. Shah Rukh Khan was a positive thing from last game. They can now trust Hooda and Shah Rukh Khan in middle-order. Punjab has to promote Pooran in batting order. They can also see some positives in bowling unit. All four seamers troubled Chennai in the chase of 107 and picked four wickets. Punjab is expected to go ahead with the same playing XI. 

On the other hand, Delhi suffered a close defeat in their last game against Rajasthan, Their batsmen let them down in first innings but bowlers opened the route to victory before Chris Morris show with the bat. Death-bowling failed to change the game but they can proud of this effort. Lalit Yadav was handed the debut in last game and Delhi tried three overseas pacers.

Ponting can try Steve Smith this time to boost their middle-order. Delhi requires a solid batsman in the middle-order who can step up if the top-order fails to deliver. Delhi also struggled against the new ball and scored only 32 in the powerplay. Delhi would not make any biog change except for Steve Smith. Nortje will miss a couple of games as he has to complete his quarantine after finding himself negative. Delhi is strong favorites on Sunday night as they have the side that can counter Punjab. 

Pitch Behaviour 

Wankhede’s track is an ideal batting track and it also offers good assistance to pacers. In last two games, we saw some movement with the new ball. Any score above 180 would be a competitive one.
