Preview and Prediction: Lucknow Super Giants versus Delhi Capitals
In fight no. 15 of the 2022 Indian Premier League, the Delhi Capitals will try to prevent the Lucknow Super Giants from achieving a hat-trick of victories. On Thursday, the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai will host this high-octane match between neighbourhood rivals.
The Capital City’s heavyweights are poised to take on an LSG team that is well-balanced on paper and on the field. The Lucknow bowling team will face a difficult assignment as a full-fledged ‘Pant Storm’ approaches the neighbours. The debuting club from Uttar Pradesh has pleased everyone with their will to win it all, but a larger test awaits them from one of the most consistent teams in the league.
Players to Watch
Avesh Khan, a 25-year-old right-arm bowler, was named Man of the Match in their last match after taking four wickets and preventing SRH from reaching the objective. Avesh has already taken seven wickets in three matches, proving that every cent of the 10 crores bought by the LSG thought tank at the auction table was well spent.
Rishabh Pant: All eyes will be on the DC captain, who is considered as one of the most lethal batters in the world at the moment. Delhi’s local lad was the team’s top scorer with a quickfire 43 in 29 balls, but he couldn’t hold off Kiwi paceman Lockie Ferguson.
