After winning their previous match, the Punjab Kings (PBKS) will face a formidable opponent in the form of Delhi Capitals (DC) in their next group stage match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. This match will take place on May 16 (Dr. Monday) at De Academy Wai Patel Sports, Mumbai. Not just PBKS, DC is entering the competition after winning their previous match and wanting to continue their championship-winning streak.
While the PBKS beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 54 points in their previous match, DC defeated the Rajasthan Royals (RR) by eight wickets and made sure to follow the final matches. Both PBKS and DC play some excellent cricket in corrections and like to perform consistently as the cycle comes to a close. It's a win-win match for both teams and the loss will more or less destroy their hopes of being in the top four.

Today IPL match predictions Probable Top Performers
Probably the best batter of the Match
After suffering some poor performances, England's Jonny Bairstow returned to the level by scoring fifty minutes in a row. The right batsman has completely demolished RCB's bowling attack in the previous match and also wants to simulate his performance in the next match.
Probably the best bowler of the Match
Left-handed player Chetan Sakarya took two important stakes and ceded only 23 runs in his over-four stake against RR. The 24-year-old has the ability to create a huge swing with the new ball and will be looking to capture some crucial wickets for his team in the upcoming showdown.
