The 59th game of IPL 2023 will be played between Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings at the former’s home ground. Delhi, who are placed right at the bottom of the points table, stand little to no chance to make it to the playoffs. Punjab, on the other hand, are eighth in the points table with five wins and six losses and they need to win all their remaining games to make it to the top four.
Punjab are coming into this game on the back of a loss at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders. Shikhar Dhawan scored a half century to take his team to a first innings total of 179 runs at the Eden Gardens, after which their bowlers were unable to defend the target. In the end, KKR needed two runs off the last ball with Rinku Singh on strike. Singh finished the chase with a boundary in the last ball.
Delhi are also coming into this game on the back of a loss at the hands of Chennai Super Kings. The Delhi bowlers did a good job to restrict CSK to 167 for 8, but their batsmen botched up. None of the batsmen could score a significant knock as Delhi eventually lost the match by 27 runs.

DC vs PBKS Match Prediction
Delhi’s batting has been their biggest concern this season. David Warner was in good form in the first few games, then the likes of Phil Salt and Mitchell Marsh delivered in a couple of games, but no batsman has performed consistently. Delhi are more than 80% already eliminated from the playoffs race. For this game, we expect Punjab to come out as the winners.
