Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals Match Details
- Lucknow Super Giants will be aiming to qualify for the playoffs for the second time in a row.
- Delhi Capitals will be missing the services of skipper Rishabh Pant and thus David Warner has been appointed to fill his shoes.
- The two teams have played against each other in two games so far and both matches resulted in Lucknow scoring a win.
In a bid to cause a turnaround this season following a poor performance last year, Delhi Capitals will be going one-on-one against Lucknow Super Giants. The Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium will play host to the high-profile battle of cricket on Saturday, April 01. Going into the 2023 season of the Indian Premier League, the two teams have different things to worry about.
In their debut season, the Lucknow Super Giants turned many heads owing to their all-around performance. The team featured in a total of 14 league matches and collected 18 points with the help of nine victories and just five losses. They were going strong to play their first final but a loss against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator game caused their exit from the league.
The team will be starting this season with new hopes and strategies. They have made some crucial additions to their squad by acquiring the services of Nicholas Pooran, Romario Shepherd, Amit Sharma, Daniel Sams, and Jayadev Unadkat. Meanwhile, the team also let go of players like Manish Pandey and Jason Holder.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals look a little unsettled and imbalanced from the exit of Rishabh Pant because of multiple surgeries. With the wicketkeeper-batter ruled out David Warner will be leading the side. Though Warner is a good fit for the leadership, the management will struggle in finding a replacement for Pant, the batter, in the middle overs.
In the mini-auction, DC also made some interesting buys in the form of Phil Salt, Mukesh Kumar, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw, and Ishant Sharma. The Capitals were not exceptional in the last season as they suffered seven losses and won as many games. The team missed a chance to feature in the next round as they finished in fifth place.
