THE LOWDOWN

PUNJAB KINGS

  • Punjab Kings will be hoping that the healthy English contingent among their ranks can help finally lead them to success in the competition having never won the IPL previously, their best finish being runners-up in 2014.
  • The likes of Sam Curran, Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone are all likely to play crucial roles here for the Kings, whilst opener and captain Shikhar Dhawan will need to have a strong tournament if his side are to stand a chance.

DELHI CAPITALS

  • Ricky Ponting’s Delhi Capitals have already been handed a huge boost before their 2024 IPL campaign has even begun with the news that captain Rishabh Pant is available and will make his long-awaited return to cricket after a devastating car crash in 2022 almost cost him his life.
  • Just having Pant back within the fold regardless of performance adds a huge feel-good factor to the Capitals, especially after losing Harry Brook’s services, the England batter withdrawing to spend time with his family following the sad passing of his grandmother.

THE PREDICTION

Injuries and the withdrawal of Brook have no doubt proved a big obstacle for Ricky Ponting and Delhi to try and overcome going into the tournament. Punjab Kings are more of a settled squad and should be able to hit the ground running from ball one. Combine that with home advantage being in their favour here and a Punjab Kings victory looks to be on the cards.

TIP: PUNJAB KINGS TO WIN
