The famous North Indian derby will kick off the second half of the Indian T20 League. Delhi Capitals is in a marginally better spot than Punjab Kings heading into this match. The Rishabh Pant-led team has won five of their seven games in this tournament, the most recent of which was a victory over Kolkata.
Punjab, on the other hand, is coming off a win over Bangalore in this match. They won the game convincingly at the Motera stadium alone. They have now won three of their seven games in this competition. Given the current state of the game, this should be an exciting matchup.
Ahmedabad is expected to remain humid, with an average temperature of 38 degrees Celsius. There hasn’t been as much dew at this venue as in Chennai or Mumbai, so it shouldn’t affect the game much.
So far, the wicket at the Narendra Modi Stadium has been well-balanced, with good pace, turn, and carry on all of the surfaces that have been used. Expect a slightly slick wicket that will gradually soften as the game progresses.
