DC vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction: 11th Match, IPL 2021

DC vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021. Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings will play against each other in the 11th match of IPL 2021 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

Delhi Capitals:

After such a brilliant performance in the first match, Delhi Capitals fell flat in the last game and lost by three wickets. They are currently at the 4th position on the points table with two points.

The openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan, after a brilliant partnership in the first match, got out early in a quick session in the last matchAt No.3, Rahane also did not score much, but Rishab Pant has appeared to be comfortable in the leadership role and scored a fifty in the last match. 

In the middle-order, Marcus Stoinis has appeared to be struggling to score runs. The debutant Lalit Yadav batted decently, and in the end, Tom Curran and Chris Woakes scored some quick runs and helped DC reach a fighting total.

Chris Woakes and Avesh Khan have been brilliant in the bowling department as they have been very economical and are consistently picking up wickets. Rabada also bowled well, picking up two wickets in the last match. The remaining bowlers have appeared to be struggling to pick up wickets.

Delhi Capitals need to strengthen their batting department as they have bowlers who can handle any opposition, but they need support from their batsmen.

Punjab Kings:

Punjab Kings have not been up to the mark so far in this season as they have won one out of the two matches and are currently at the 7th position on the points table with two points. They lost the last game by six wickets.

Mayank Agarwal opened the innings for PBKS in both the matches and struggled to score runs. After a brilliant knock in the first match, Rahul got out cheaply in the last game. At No.3, Chris Gayle also went away early.

Deepak Hooda has been batting decently in the middle-order, and Sharukh Khan batted brilliantly in the last match but missed his fifty by just three runs. Nicholas Pooran is entirely out of form so far this season as he has been out for a duck in two consecutive matches. Jhye Richardson batted decently, scoring some runs in the last game.

The bowling unit has been doing a decent job picking up wickets, but they also need to control the flow of runs. Mohammad Shami and Arshdeep Singh have been bowling well and picked up wickets consistently in both matches. Richardson and Meredith have not performed up to the expectations so far in this season. Murugan Ashwin managed to pick up a wicket in the last game.

Punjab Kings need to get more all-rounders in the team, which would help them to bat and bowl.
