Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Delhi Capitals (DC) are all set to lock horns in match no. 2 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season on Saturday, March 23, at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur. This is the season’s first game for both teams, and they will be looking to start their campaign with a bang.

Punjab will be hosting Delhi in their new stadium and this is the first that they will be playing an IPL game at the venue. The Shikhar Dhawan-led side finished eighth in the points table last season but with some new additions in the upcoming season, the side will be looking to forget the past and start fresh in the 17th edition. Punjab have never lifted the trophy as the closest they have reached is the finals in 2014 edition, when they lost to Kolkata Knight Riders to finish as runners-up.

On the other hand, the Capitals also had a poor campaign in the 2023 season as they finished at the ninth position under David Warner’s leadership. Pant, who has been away from action due to an accident in 2022 that sidelined him for over a year, will be looking to make a brilliant comeback. Capitals are also a team that has never been crowned champions. In 16 editions, they have reached the finals only once, in the 2020 season, but fell short and were defeated by the mighty Mumbai Indians.

Pitch Report

The Mullanpur is set to be officially inaugurated with this match. A few domestic games havet been played at the venue and it is expected that the pitch and conditions might change after a few games are played on this surface. It provides ample support for bowlers, particularly those adept at utilising slower ball change-ups. Teams may prefer bowling first at the new deck.

Probable Best Players of the Match

Probable Best Batter:

Shikhar Dhawan has a huge responsibility on his shoulders for the Punjab Kings in the batting department. Dhawan, as an opener, has been consistent in the previous seasons. He is at the second position in the list of most run-getters in the history of the IPL. Though he has been away from competitive cricket, he would be looking to make an impact from the word go.

Probable Best Bowler:

Kuldeep Yadav can be crucial with his spin bowling and provide some early breakthroughs for DC. He is coming off good performances in Test cricket and has been performing consistently for the Indian team in white ball as well. Pant is expected to use Yadav at the correct time in the middle overs to give them those wickets.
