Mumbai, May 16: Punjab Kings (PBKS) will face Delhi Capitals in an IPL 2022 match on Monday (May 16), which is crucial to both the teams in their journey towards IPL playoffs this year.
At the moment, the DC led by Rishabh Pant have 12 points from as many matches and they need to win their remaining two matches to stay ahead of the competitors.
The PBKS under Mayank Agarwal too are in the same position, 12 points from 12 matches, and they also have to worry about a far inferior net run rate that will see a further plunge in the case of a defeat against the DC.
So, the desperation from the two teams might just give us a match to remember on Tuesday. DC might also be pleased with the fact that opener Prithvi Shaw has been released from the hospital and will count on him to get to the field against the Punjab outfit.

Both Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings are coming off victories in their respective last matches in the IPL 2022. They showed resilience to win and stay alive in the race to the playoffs. It will be a cracker of a contest between two teams replete with match-winners but we will pick Delhi Capitals as winners in the PBKS vs DC match because they are slightly more consistent.
