PBKS vs DC: Punjab Kings will lock horns against Delhi Capitals in the 64th Match of TATA IPL 2023 at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamshala. It is more like a Do-or-Die match for Punjab Kings if they look forward to qualification for the IPL playoffs. In this article, we will walk you through PBKS vs DC Dream11 Prediction, Strongest Playing 11s, Weather Forecast, and Pitch Report for match number 64.
Gujarat Titans emerged as the first side to qualify for the IPL 2023 playoffs, but there are still three slots available, and there is fierce competition among five teams to go to the next phase. Delhi Capitals, the first team eliminated from the competition, will now have the chance to play spoilers in their last two games.
The Kings, who are eighth in the standings with 12 points, have a chance to finish with 16 points and advance to the next round, something they haven’t been able to achieve since securing the runners-up spot in 2014, placing them in the sixth slot over the previous four seasons.
This season, Punjab Kings have once again performed below average. The first setback came when Jonny Bairstow was ruled out from the IPL 2023. Kings have just marginally edged over their opponents in every game they won.
The burden of doing all the work will once again fall on the shoulders of the foreign players for DC, who have been let down by the Indian hitters. After having difficulty on slow wickets in their past two games, DC can now relax knowing that the Dharamsala surface is unlikely to present a spin test for the batters.

PBKS vs DC Pitch Report
Dharamshala has not historically generated high-scoring T20 matches, with the pacers typically benefiting in particular. Even in the previous T20I here last year against India and Sri Lanka, Indian pacers Mohammed Siraj and Avesh Khan took full use of the seaming conditions and swing available with the new ball.
Over 30 men’s T20 matches, 154.6 runs have been the average score. As a result, Wednesday’s game between bat and ball should be well-matched, and a total around the 170-run mark might very well end up being the winning number.
