The Delhi Capitals (DC) are in readiness to lock horns with Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala on Wednesday. Speaking ahead of the game, Delhi Capitals’ Assistant Coach Ajit Agarkar reveals that they have a lot of pride at stake.
Ahead of their second last game of the season, Ajit Agarkar said, “There’s a lot of pride at stake and there are still two points to play for. We won’t change our approach and we will try to finish as high as possible on the points table. We lost too many wickets in a cluster in the last game. We got off to a good start, but we couldn’t finish the match. We’ll look to improve upon this aspect of our batting in our next two games.”

It is to be noted that Delhi Capitals have already bowed out of the tournament after suffering a 31-run loss to PBKS. In the reverse fixture, they will again see Shikhar Dhawan-led side on May 17 at Dharamsala and would be raring to give in their all as they have a lot of pride at stake. DC went out of the IPL 2023 playoffs race after losing eight games and winning just four out of their 12 clashes so far.
