Punjab Kings lost against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 7 wickets and Delhi Capitals lost against Royal Challengers Bangalore. For Delhi Capitals, David Warner and Prithvi Shaw are looking in fine form. Except them no-one, specially middle-order hasn’t fired. Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav and Mandeep Singh have all failed with the bat.
