DC vs PBKS LIVE updates: Pitch report by Simon Doull
"This was the same pitch that was used a couple of nights ago between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders, it produced 427 runs. Why? Because the pitch is absolutely beautiful. It has a little less grass than it had the other night. But the boundaries are shorter, 65-66 meters on one side and the batters targeted that. There is going to be plenty of runs in it again but it might be just a touch drier. So if you are bowling first the spinners are definitely going to come into play. Still think it is a 180-190 surface though."

DC vs PBKS LIVE: ‘Focus will be playing 40 overs of good cricket’ - Ricky Ponting
“We have to turn up with a positive attitude and we know we have to play well in this game. With games like these and tournaments like these, you need the leaders (in the team) to stand up. So far in the tournament, Warner's leadership has been great, Rishabh has been good. We have been playing 35-36 overs of good cricket in a match, just that 3 or 4 bad overs have gone bad. Today's focus will be on playing 40 overs of good cricket. We know that we can do that, and we have another game in a couple of days time. It has been a stop-start tournament for us, so we need to get some momentum for the rest of the tournament. The players are aware of the way I want them to play, we have been talking about that on a daily basis. Every team is confined to the same situations, we are not different from anybody else. I am pretty confident that we are going to put up a good show tonight.”

DC vs PBKS updates: Ravi Shastri shares his thoughts on Rishabh Pant
Ravi Shastri feels Delhi Capitals should take some responsibility off Rishabh Pant's shoulders, to get the maximum dividends out of the wicket-keeper batter.
"What I would like to see with Delhi is Rishabh Pant coming and playing his natural game. Forgetting that he is the captain of the side, just let him go out and play his natural game. Let the others around him take the responsibility, because if he fires it will do his captaincy a world of good and at the same time you will see the results changing for Delhi Capitals pretty quickly," the former India coach said on Star Sports show Gameplan.
Speaking on Pant's recent form, Shastri noted: "I don't think there is any problem with his batting. I think it's just change of mind-set that is needed, where he goes out and gives himself a little bit of time early on and then goes for it. There are no half measures. The Rishabh Pant you know is Rishabh Pant where there are no half measures. He plays the high-risk shots, he takes his chances and you want him to play in that fashion because that's what brings out the best in him."
