DC still struggling with best XI
- Delhi Capitals in search for consistency
- Lucknow Super Giants third in points table
Lucknow Super Giants have won six and lost three in IPL 2022 so far, and are placed third in the points table. Having beaten Punjab Kings on Friday, Lucknow are on a high and have odds of 1.92 to win this big clash against Delhi.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, haven’t had consistency all through the season – they have lost two and win two of their last four games. Nevertheless, Delhi’s bowling attack remains impressive and they have odds of 1.86 to win against Lucknow.
What happened earlier in the season
Lucknow Super Giants won by six wickets in the previous clash against Delhi Capitals, chasing down an ordinary target of 150. Lucknow’s bowling attack has been just fine this season and it came to the fore against Delhi Capitals.

The contest will likely be decided by how well Delhi Capitals can restrict KL Rahul. The Lucknow opener is second in the highest run-scorers list and will be a key player for Lucknow when Delhi Capitals take them on.
Keep an eye on…
KL Rahul: The Lucknow Super Giants captain has scored two tons against Mumbai Indians, but has an average in the 20s against other teams this season. Rahul has also had significantly better returns when his team is batting first.
Kuldeep Yadav: With 17 wickets in the tournament, Kuldeep Yadav is the second-highest wicket-taker in IPL 2022. The spinner had taken just one wicket across two seasons in 2020 and 2021, but has made a remarkable comeback this season.
TIP: KL Rahul is one of the most consistent batters in the tournament. Back KL Rahul at 3.36 to be Lucknow’s top batter!
