Delhi Capitals vs Punjab Kings
These two teams have been the most underperforming sides of the Indian T20 Premier League. Considering all the seasons in mind, they both have a win percentage of around 45%, with zero season-winning trophies to their name in the past 12 years. Owing to their poor performance and inconsistency, dc vs pbks matches are always unpredictable.
If we look at dc vs kxip head to head matches, Punjab Kings have a higher share of victories, but the gap between them isn’t significant.

Punjab Kings might be seeing Mayank Agarwal as their new skipper in IPL 2022. He did take up that role once in the last season. Agarwal had scored a total of 441 runs in 12 matches at an average of 4.09 in IPL 2021.
They also retained their pacer Arshdeep Singh who has 30 wickets to his name in 23 IPL games that he has played in 3 seasons.

With both sides retaining some of their big players, these two teams promise more nail-biting clashes in the coming season.
