Key Battles in Lucknow:

David Warner vs Krunal Pandya

Our opener, David Warner has been in brilliant form at the top and he likes to take on the spinners. His batting against Krunal Pandya is no exception. Warner has scored 39 runs in 26 balls against Krunal. The Aussie is yet to be dismissed by Krunal and we hope that he maintains his record in the upcoming game.

Axar Patel vs KL Rahul

Axar Patel has been our leading spinner in the absence of Kuldeep Yadav. He has the upper hand over LSG’s skipper, KL Rahul. The left-arm orthodox spinner has kept things quiet and has conceded only 22 runs in the 34 balls he has bowled to Rahul. He has also dismissed Rahul twice in the five innings they’ve been up against each other.

Anrich Nortje vs Devdutt Padikkal

Our pacer, Anrich Nortje has been effective with the ball against LSG’s batter, Devdutt Padikkal. He has conceded 17 runs in the 11 balls he has bowled to Padikkal, while the LSG batter has fallen prey to Nortje thrice. We can expect this to be an interesting matchup in the middle overs.

Khaleel Ahmed:

Khaleel Ahmed has been our in-form bowler with a knack for picking wickets upfront and the second-best economy (6.9 RPO) in the powerplay. He has bagged seven wickets in IPL 2024 and is our leading wicket-taker. The left-arm pacer is among the three bowlers who have bowled a maiden over this season.

David Warner: 

David Warner has been in sublime form this campaign, giving solid starts atop. The southpaw has been playing risk-free cricket off late and scores at a decent rate. He has added 158 runs, including a fifty against Chennai Super Kings in Vizag.

Rishabh Pant: 

Rishabh Pant’s comeback has solidified the middle order, thanks to his consistent run-scoring. The skipper is the third top scorer for the team in IPL 2024 with 153 runs. Pant has slammed two fifties in five matches and is known for his match-winning abilities. 

Tristan Stubbs:

A young rising star, Tristan Stubbs has shown incredible maturity and capitalised on his opportunities with the bat. The power hitter has amassed 174 runs in five matches at an average of 58. He has been fabulous in high-pressure situations and is scoring at a blistering strike rate of 193.33. Stubbs’ strike rate, meanwhile, goes up to 265 in the death overs which is the best for any batter in this edition of the IPL

LSG vs DC Match Preview

Lucknow Super Giants have made a flying start to their IPL 2024 campaign, winning three out of their first four matches. Their only blemish came in the season opener, but they have bounced back impressively since then.

Under the astute leadership of KL Rahul, the team has defended scores in excess of 160 on multiple occasions, a testament to their bowling prowess and composure under pressure.

In stark contrast, the Delhi Capitals find themselves languishing at the bottom of the points table, with just one win from their five matches so far. Their bowling attack has been the Achilles’ heel, leaking runs at an alarming rate in their last two outings.

The injuries to key players like Mitchell Marsh and Kuldeep Yadav have further compounded their woes, forcing them to reshuffle their playing XI.

For the Lucknow Super Giants, the likes of KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, and Marcus Stoinis will be crucial with the bat, while Naveen-ul-Haq and Avesh Khan will spearhead the bowling attack. They may also consider handing a debut to the West Indian all-rounder Shamar Joseph, who has been warming the bench so far.

The Delhi Capitals will rely heavily on their opening duo of David Warner and Prithvi Shaw to provide a solid start. Tristan Stubbs’ explosive batting has been a bright spot, but the team will need their bowlers to step up and support the young South African.

LSG Won3
DC Won0

History favours the Lucknow Super Giants in this encounter, as they have won all three previous matches against the Delhi Capitals. The home team will draw confidence from this record and the familiarity with the Ekana Stadium pitch, which has generally favored teams batting first.

Ekana Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

The Ekana Stadium pitch has offered a good batting track so far, with an average first-innings score of around 170. Fast bowlers have enjoyed more success than spinners, but the latter could play a crucial role as the match progresses and the pitch deteriorates. The team winning the toss is likely to opt to bat first, given the recent trend at this venue.
