DC vs PBKS: The 64th match of IPL 2022 will be played between Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals in Mumbai after some time. Both the teams need to win this match to stay in the playoff race.
64th match after sometime
The 64th match of IPL 2022 is to be played between Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals after some time. This match is important for both teams to stay in the race for the playoffs. Delhi has won 6 matches out of 12 so far. The team is currently at number 5 in the points table with 12 points. Punjab has also won 6 out of 12 matches. He also has 12 points, but due to his net run rate, he is in 7th place. That is, both the teams have to win both the remaining matches to reach 16 points. Mayank Agarwal was made the captain of Punjab before the start of the 15th season of the T20 league. In such a situation all eyes are on him. The team has not been able to make it to the playoffs for 8 years i.e. from 2014.
kept his hopes of reaching the knockout rounds intact
Punjab Kings started with a win in the T20 league. But in the middle, the team’s rhythm had deteriorated. They have kept their hopes of reaching the knockout rounds alive by winning 3 out of the last 5 matches. The team had achieved a big victory by 54 runs over Royal Challengers Bangalore in the last match. In such a situation, once again the team will expect good performance from Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone. Shikhar Dhawan is in excellent form. But Mayank has not been able to regain the rhythm so far.
16 or more points for three teams
Talking about the point table, 3 teams have 16 or more points. In such a situation, it is necessary to have 16 points to secure a place in the playoffs. Mumbai and CSK are out. On the other hand, KKR and Hyderabad cannot reach 16 points. If today Punjab team defeats Delhi, then the Delhi team led by Rishabh Pant will also not be able to reach 16 points. In such a situation, if Punjab beats Sunrisers Hyderabad on 22 May after Delhi, then its way to the playoffs will be easy.
Only RCB is in Danger
If Punjab Kings wins both the matches, then only one team can put an obstacle in their way and that is RCB. He currently has 14 points in 13 matches. He has to face Gujarat Titans in the last match on 19 May. His run rate is now minus. In such a situation, he will have to register a big victory over Gujarat. But it is difficult to do so against his No. 1 team. In such a situation, the hope of reaching the knockout round of Punjab is high, because its net run rate is in plus.
