There has been no injury news till now from both teams. Only DC opener Prithvi Shaw will miss the next two games as he is still recovering.
Mayank-led Punjab Kings made a great comeback by winning the last two games consecutively. They collected 12 points in as many games so far. However, they need to win the rest of their two remaining games to keep their hopes alive in the race for playoffs. So the next two games will be very crucial for the side. The good news for the side is that Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone have smashed half-centuries in the previous game against RCB to put up a brilliant win. Will they be able to overcome the challenge of DC to progress further in the playoffs race?
Meanwhile, on the other side, Pant-led Delhi Capitals have secured the same points just like Punjab in the same games. So, it's also a do-or-die game for the DC side. A loss from here will eliminate them from the race of the playoffs this season. Delhi has also put up a stealer show in their previous game by winning it against a strong side like Rajasthan Royals. They will be in high confidence to grab a win here again to keep their hopes alive in the playoffs of this season. The bad news for the franchise is that Prithvi Shaw will miss the last two games of DC in the tournament.
