The Match number 32 of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 will see Delhi Capitals (DC) taking on Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on April 20th.
The ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) hasn’t been as fruitful for Delhi Capitals as they would have thought. After convincingly winning the opening match against Mumbai Indians, Delhi lost track and successively lost two of its upcoming matches. The franchise bounced back with a win in its next encounter but again failed to remain consistent with winning as RCB defeated them in their last contest.
A similar kind of pattern has been shown by Punjab Kings wherein they go on to win one game and the very next game they lose it. With three wins and three losses in six matches, Punjab Kings is seated at seventh position in the points table.
Delhi Capitals (DC) followed Punjab in the ranking table as they are placed eight. Notably, Delhi has played just five matches so far, and if they manage to win the match against Punjab, they will be good to storm into the top five.
