At the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, the Delhi Capitals will face the Punjab Kings in their next encounter. The Rishabh Pant-led team is coming off a loss to the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last game and is now in eighth place in the points table with two victories in five games. In the Delhi camp, Mitchell Marsh tested positive for Covid-19, and the entire squad was placed in room isolation for the day. If Anrich Nortje is fit, he might return to the XI after the other bowlers conceded a lot in the last match.
Punjab Kings, on the other hand, haven’t had the greatest of luck, and their most recent match saw them lose badly to the Sunrisers Hyderabad. With three victories in six games, they are now in seventh place in the points table, and Mayank Agarwal is likely to return to the XI for the upcoming game after missing the last match. Jonny Bairstow has yet to set the stage on fire this season, and Punjab will be expecting him to come good soon.
