  • Nicholas Pooran has been in fantastic T20 form over the last 18 months and has carried it into this tournament. The West Indian is well worth backing as Lucknow Super Giants’ highest run scorer against Delhi Capitals. Yash Thakur comes into this match after taking 5/30 against Gujarat Titans and the fast medium bowler is our tip for Lucknow Super Giants’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • Tristan Stubbs has had an excellent start to this campaign in spite of the poor form of his side and he is a strong choice for Delhi Capitals’ highest run scorer against Lucknow Super Giants. Axar Patel has gone wicketless in only one of his last four games and the left-arm spinner is our pick for Delhi Capitals’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • As one of the cleanest hitters and most attacking batters in the tournament, we recommend selecting Nicholas Pooran to hit the most sixes in this fixture.

Team NEWS: 

LSG Team News: 

In his post-match interview after the last game, KL Rahul made a point of saying how there is plenty of responsibility on the batting line-up due to the inexperience of the bowlers in the team. As a result, we expect no changes to the batting line-up and with the bowlers remaining injury free, the same bowling unit. 

DC Team News: 

Mitchell Marsh was left out of the squad against Mumbai Indians due to injury and although it is not thought that he has a long-term issue, he is unlikely to be rushed back for this game. The Capitals do have pace bowler Lizaad Williams available after he arrived as Harry Brook’s overseas replacement.

Winning Chances: 

With Lucknow Super Giants finding a way to win games by a comfortable margin over recent fixtures and Delhi Capitals winning just one match so far in the tournament, this looks like being a one-sided clash. Lucknow have won three successive matches at this venue in front of their home supporters and we are backing them to get another victory in this fixture.

Lucknow Super Giants to beat Delhi Capitals.

Lucknow Super Giants a 71% chance to win this match 

Delhi Capitals a 29% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Lucknow Super Giants 

Nicholas Pooran 

The left-hander is one of the best ‘finishers’ in the IPL 2024 but he will be looking to improve from the last match when he struck only seven runs from five balls in the final over.

Marcus Stoinis 

The Australian all-rounder is a powerful hitter and he top scored for Lucknow Super Giants against Gujarat Titans with 58.

Yash Thakur 

The pace bowler will come into this game with his confidence at an all time high after dismissing Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Rahul Tewatia and Noor Ahmed in Match 21.

Krunal Pandya 

The all-rounder has finished unbeaten in all four of his batting innings so far in the tournament and took a brilliant 3/11 with the ball in the last game.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Kwena Maphaka, Naman Dhir, Shams Mulani, Akash Madhwal, Nehal Wadhera 

Manimaran Siddharth, Deepak Hooda, Amit Mishra, Yudhvir Singh Charak, Arshad Khan.

Delhi Capitals 

Prithvi Shaw 

The opener struck 66 runs from 40 balls with an innings which included eight fours and three sixes in the defeat against Mumbai Indians.

Axar Patel 

The all-rounder has been performing consistently with the ball in this tournament but he will be looking to his batting, which has been impressive in recent seasons, to also shine again in this match.

Anrich Nortje 

The South African pacer has taken five wickets across the last two games but has also conceded 124 runs! The team management need to find a way to continue to get the dismissals but reduce the runs he is leaking.

Khaleel Ahmed 

Khaleel has taken 7 wickets in 5 matches at a strike rate of 17.1. He looks in good form and he is a crucial player in the DC’s pace unit for this season. In the last year’s head to head against LSG, Khaleel took 2 wickets in 4 overs giving away just 30 runs.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Khaleel Ahmed, Yash Dhull, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Sumit Kumar, Praveen Dubey 

Khaleel Ahmed was one of only two bowlers for Delhi Capitals to keep their economy rate to under 10 in the last match so he has a good chance of being used in the bowling innings once again. Jake Fraser-McGurk could come in if any of the overseas bowlers struggle as an extra batter.

Team Forms: 

LSG Team Form: 

Lucknow Super Giants come into this clash on Friday night looking to make it four wins in a row.

DC Team Form: 

It has been only one win for Delhi Capitals so far in the tournament and they are looking to avoid their third successive defeat in this match.
