PUNJAB VS DELHI 2021 PREDICTION
ACCORDING TO OUR REPORT
TOSS WINNER – PUNJAB KINGS
MATCH WINNER – DELHI CAPITALS
The Punjab Kings beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore in a thrilling match, continuing the IPL’s theme of underdogs succeeding. Since 2019, the underdog has won nearly 40% of all Indian Premier League matches, so you can never be afraid of long odds.
The Punjab Kings will now face the Delhi Capitals in another tough match. DC has become one of the most reliable teams in IPL 2021, winning its most recent match convincingly against KKR.
The PBKS vs DC match prediction might not be as simple as it first seems. Punjab Kings have already defeated the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore, indicating that they will beat the top teams this season.
The IPL 2021 match between Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals will take place on May 2nd at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
KL Rahul now holds the Orange Cap for IPL 2021, having scored 331 runs. He has four fifties in seven innings and is clearly in fine shape. KL Rahul is one of those players who can go ‘Over’ in terms of runs scored on certain occasions and be well, but the secret to his longevity is that he plays risk-free cricket at the outset.
Since KL Rahul takes his time, Punjab Kings do not get off to a fast start, and you can bet on the ‘Under’ for totals in their first six overs.
Mayank Aggarwal was injured in the previous match and is unlikely to play against Delhi due to the shorter turnaround period. Chris Gayle smashed a century against RCB, securing his place at number three.
His matchup against DC spinners such as Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav would be intriguing. When Gayle is on form, sixes are never far away, so look for betting markets on Betway like Total Sixes or Chris Gayle to Hit a Six to take advantage of his recent success.
Punjab Kings are in fine batting shape, but they have alternated between being brilliant and being very slow so far. We are concerned because there is little in between.
Harpreet Brar and Ravi Bishnoi have been added to the bowling attack, providing some much-needed power in the middle overs. It would not be a bad thing to bet on these players to take a wicket.
We believe Nicholas Pooran’s shortage of runs is becoming a big concern, and now is the time to give Dawid Malan a chance. Rilee Meredith took a direct hit to the knee and will have to sit out the next match, denying Jhye Richardson a chance to play.
So far, DC’s performance in IPL 2021 has been excellent. So far, they have only lost two games, all of which were tight contests. The form of Shikhar Dhawan at the helm has been the most important factor in their performance.
Dhawan has 311 runs under his belt and is in a close race with KL Rahul for the Orange Cap. Prithvi Shaw is also in fine form, having scored 269 runs at an incredible strike rate of 165.03.
DC is a strong contender for the Total Fours betting market because both of these players hit a lot of fours. On this business, we prefer to bet ‘Over,’ particularly on strong pitches.
DC has a solid batting lineup, led by Steve Smith, Rishab Pant, Marcus Stoinis, and Shimron Hetmyer, and may have a small advantage over the Punjab Kings. We like betting markets like Fifty to be Scored in the DC Inning (offered by Casumo) because of the consistency of the Delhi team’s players and their current form.
Ishant Sharma and Axar Patel’s return to the squad has improved the DC bowling lineup significantly. Avesh Khan is in excellent form, taking wickets in nearly every match. He may not have the same prestige as Kagiso Rabada, but he consistently outperforms him in any game.
We’ve seen betting markets overpricing Kagiso Rabada (which we recommend avoiding) and great odds on Avesh Khan to take a wicket (look at these seriously).
The Delhi Capitals seem to have a well-balanced lineup and are deserving of their odds against the Punjab Kings.
