Recent Match Report - Capitals vs Punjab Kings 64th Match 2022

Delhi Capitals 159 for 7 (Marsh 63, Sarfaraz 32, Livingstone 3-27) beat Punjab Kings 142 for 9 (Jitesh 44, Thakur 4-36, Axar 2-14, Kuldeep 2-14) by 17 runs

Mitchell Marsh produced a masterful half-century in severely difficult conditions for run-scoring. He was so good in judging when and whom to attack, to the point that this win – which lifts Delhi Capitals to fourth spot – may as well have been built on his restraint as it was on his big hits.

Meanwhile, Punjab Kings, for all of the bravery that Jitesh Sharma (44 off 34) showed in taking it close, have now lost seven of their 13 games and are pretty much out of the tournament. Only a miracle can take them into the final four.
