Glenn Maxwell will be handling middle order for Punjab, having decent form in recently concluded series against England has scored well balanced 77.
Deepak Hooda and Pooran will be lower order batsmen for the team who will have a role of finishing the matches for the team, Pooran had poor form in CPL with having a century against his name and failing miserably in remaining matches.
Krishnappa Gowtham will be allrounder for the team who can bowl in power plays and can score quick runs at latter stage of game.
Ravi Bishnoi coming in to the team with heavy reputation in under-19 circuit,picked up 15 wickets in u-19 world cup. Have an eye on him.
Shelldon Cottrell one of bowling heavy weights for Punjab has proved himself in International circuit and had decent outing in CPL, scalped 5 wickets
Shami proven 50 over bowler will be lethal for Punjab ream has picked up 19 wickets for his team in last outing.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman is another finger spinner for the team, highly unlikely to play in playing XI but a player you shouldn’t miss put on
Neesham and Chris Jordan will be fifth/sixth bowling options who can bat as well at end of innings with Pooran out of form, Jordam will likely replace him who can bowl as well and bat down the order. Neesham is another option for the team.
Punjab will be looking for Rahul to fire and give them good starts, Inexperienced middle order and poor form of Maxwell is a concerning thing for them.
Players to look out: KL Rahul, Maxwell, Cottrell, Ravi Bishnoi
Our take: With Maxwell out of this match Punjab has lost a middle order batsmen this will be advantage for Delhi to bank on. Delhi has high chances of winning this match if they put out their team skills.
