DC Struggle Against Spin

Join us on telegram

DC has struggled against spin in IPL 2023. In 13 matches, they have lost 37 wickets to spin, which is the most for any team. This is a major concern for DC, as the pitches in the UAE, where the second half of the IPL will be played, are known to be spin-friendly.

PBKS have a number of spinners in their squad, including Rahul Chahar, Liam Livingstone, Harpreet Brar, and Rishi Dhawan. These spinners will be key to PBKS’ chances of winning the match.

Can DC Draw Level With PBKS?

DC can draw level with PBKS in the points table with a win on Sunday. However, they will need to overcome their struggles against spin and play a disciplined brand of cricket.

PBKS, on the other hand, will be looking to continue their winning momentum and move up the points table. They have a strong batting line-up and a good bowling attack, and they will be confident of winning the match.

The match is expected to be a close contest, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
