DC concerned by balance
- Lucknow look balanced with Jason Holder stepping up
- Delhi need better starts from top-order
Delhi Capitals have failed to inspire much confidence with bat and ball so far this season. However, with the arrival of David Warner, they will have more stability at the top and it should also aid Prithvi Shaw in playing his natural game. DC have odds of 1.78 to beat LSG and add to their win against Mumbai.

Lucknow Super Giants, meanwhile, look very balanced with the arrival of Jason Holder. They will want KL Rahul to play more positively upfront and then use the likes of Ayush Badoni, Deepak Hooda and Holder himself to accelerate towards the death overs. The bowling line-up also looks well-rounded with Andrew Tye, Jason Holder and Avesh Khan. LSG’s chances of winning stand at 2.01
The season so far
Delhi Capitals beat Mumbai Indians in their first game of the season, but the loss to Gujarat Titans was a significant blow to them. That said, with Mustafizur Rahman back they looked more impactful with ball in hand and could test the LSG line-up.
Lucknow Super Giants have a more stable unit and have a slight edge to win this fixture.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
LSG have two wins in three matches and their firepower has come from different batters. The emergence of the young Ayush Badoni also augurs well for Lucknow. They will look to stifle Delhi early with the bowling in this match.
Keep an eye on…
Rishabh Pant: A promising 43 off 29 last game didn’t help the team win, but it showed glimpses of the old Rishabh Pant in action and Delhi Capitals will want their skipper to play with that kind of freedom.
KL Rahul: The strike-rate debate popped up again after Rahul ambled along to a 40-ball half-century last match. For Lucknow to use their line-up to put up big scores, they either need Rahul going faster or not batting as deep as he likes to do.
TIP: Back Deepak Hooda at 9.58 to be LSG’s top scorer! He’s in top form this season.
