In this high-voltage encounter between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) game, the choice of your fantasy captain/vice-captain picks become very crucial and important. Therefore, we will be guiding you in this well researched and analysed article.
Delhi have been in the line of fire for a number of games after they lost 5 matches on the bounce at the start of the IPL. The David Warner led side however staged a good comeback and a playoff spot looks like a possibility if a lot of results of other teams go in their way.
Punjab on the other hand, still have things under their control. They need to win all their remaining games in order to stay in the hunt.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for the DC vs PBKS game at the Arun Jaitley Stadium:
1. David Warner (Delhi Capitals)
Swashbuckling Australian opener David Warner will be a vital cog in the wheels of DC. He is the leading run-scorer of Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023 and he can act as a key member in your fantasy team as a vice-captain.
In 11 matches so far, Warner has mustered 330 runs and he can score some runs in the spin friendly tracks of Delhi as he is a good player of spin.
2. Axar Patel (Delhi Capitals)
Arguably one of the best batters of Delhi and an extremely wily bowler, Axar Patel’s guile and spin will work like magic at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. He is also Delhi’s second highest run-scorer in IPL 2023 and has scored 267 runs.
In the bowling front, Axar Patel is Delhi’s 2nd highest wicket-taker in IPL 2023 and has taken 9 wickets in 11 games so far.
3. Shikhar Dhawan (Punjab Kings)
One of the most consistent performers in the history of IPL, Shikhar Dhawan is a prolific southpaw. He has scored 349 runs in 8 matches so far and has a good strike-rate of 143.62. Dhawan will be key to the plans of Punjab Kings in this game of the Indian Premier League.
He has previously played for the Delhi franchise and hails from Delhi itself, so he knows the conditions extremely well.
