Tip Summary

  • 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.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals Tips

Top Lucknow Super Giants Batter: KL Rahul

The Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul is hailed as one of the most consistent players in the Indian Premier League. The opening batter made headlines with her performance in the last season as he ended up as the top performer for his team and second-highest run-scorer overall with 616 runs in 15 matches. The 30-year-old also smacked two hundred and four fifties. Following an impressive performance in the IPL, it was a year to forget for KL Rahul. He failed to exhibit good form in the international cricket for India in any of the formats. The same also resulted in Rahul being axed from the playing XI in the Tests and the T20 Internationals. However, the batter finally seems to have regained his rhythm. He churned out match-defining knocks in the recently-concluded three-match ODI series against Australia to help India put up a good fight. We are backing the LSG skipper to continue the rhythm with the bat and churn out another good season.

Top Delhi Capitals Batter: Prithvi Shaw

It would not be wrong to label Prithvi Shaw as one of the most unpredictable players in the history of the Indian Premier League. The young rookie possesses the talent to take his team home when he is in form, irrespective of the target he needs to chase or the playing conditions. With Rishabh Pant missing from the team, it becomes more important for Shaw to flaunt his batting prowess. Shaw has so far played 63 IPL matches and has collected an impressive 1588 runs at an average of over 25 and a strike rate of over 147. As far as his form in the last season is concerned, he accumulated 283 runs in ten games at a strike rate of 152.97 and an average of 28.30.

Avesh Khan is likely to be the best bowler to take the field on Saturday when Delhi Capitals will play against Lucknow Super Giants. The seamer exhibited top form last season for Lucknow as he picked a total of 18 wickets in 13 matches at an average of 23.11. He is expected to play all 14 games for LSG this year and again charm the fans as well as the Indian selectors with his wicket-taking ability. The odds are in the favor of Avesh to be the top wicket-taker in the Sunday evening match.
