Put into the bowl first, DC had to chase a target of 189 runs but despite a dominating knock of 66 runs by David Warner, the team lost the game.

Captain Mayank Aggarwal who missed the last match is likely to return for this match against DC. Although he is not in the best of the form in PL 2022 he can still put pressure on the PBKS bowlers from the start.
Most batsmen lacked the determination with the bat in the last match against SRH, but Liam Livingstone has done a lot of work with the bat for the team and he made 66 runs in the last match also.
Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow are the other two destructive batsmen in the PBKS batting unit. The presence of these two batsmen makes PBKS team a very strong batting lineup. Although these two batsmen didn’t get the kind of start they needed but will focus to get some runs in this upcoming match against DC.
Kagiso Rabada and Rahul Chahar are picking wickets regularly and they would look to put pressure on DC team with disciplined bowling.
