Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants match preview

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals are out of the IPL 2024 playoff race after losing their most recent fixture against Royal Challengers Bengaluru by 47 runs. They have 12 points and a poor net run-rate of -0.482. DC can reach 14 points but have a net run-rate much poorer than other teams in contention.

Playing without the captain Rishabh Pant due to suspension, DC’s pacers did a pretty good job to restrict RCB to 187. Rasikh Salam picked 2 for 23 in three overs while Khaleel Ahmed bagged 2 for 31 in his four. DC had a terrible start to the run-chase as they lost 30/4, including Jake Fraser-McGurk who hit 21 off 8 but was involved in an unfortunate run out. The stand-in skipper Axar Patel fought with 57 in 39 but didn't have any support. 

DC possible XI: Jake Fraser-McGurk, David Warner, Abhishek Porel, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c), Tristan Stubbs (wk), Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Ishant Sharma 

Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow Super Giants still have a chance of reaching the playoffs as they have 12 points from 12 games and can reach 16. However, their net run-rate of -0.769 means they will need Chennai or Hyderabad to lose their remaining games. In their previous game, they were hammered by Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 wickets. 

Batting first, LSG top order just couldn't get going and were reduced to 66/4 in 11.2 overs. Nicholas Pooran then hit 48* off 26 while Ayush Badoni struck 55 not-out in 30 balls as the pair powered the team to 165 in 20 overs. Their efforts weren't enough as SRH openers brought carnage and chased down the total in just 9.4 overs. 

LSG possible XI: KL Rahul (c/wk), Quinton de Kock, Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Naveen-ul-haq, Yash Thakur, Mohsin Khan

Pitch and expected weather conditions

The Arun Jaitley Stadium has been a heaven for batters in this edition of the IPL. The venue has served very flat pitches with no help for bowlers and short boundaries have further aided the shot-making. Delhi has hosted four games this season, with the average batting first reading a massive 242. 

As per the forecast, Delhi should witness clear weather on Tuesday evening. There should be no cloud cover or any rain threat with zero chance of precipitation. The temperature is likely to range between 30-36 degree Celsius.

Our DC vs LSG Dream11 prediction for this match

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul, Nicholas Pooran, Quinton de Kock 
  • Batter(s): Jake Fraser-McGurk, Tristan Stubbs, David Warner 
  • All-rounder(s): Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis 
  • Bowler(s): Kuldeep Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi 
  • Recommended captain: Jake Fraser-McGurk 
  • Recommended vice-captain: KL Rahul

Here in the DC vs LSG match prediction, we will shed some light on why we have gone with the above XI for this Dream11 contest. Looking at the high-scoring venue, it is sensible to load your side with batters and all-rounders. 

From the wicket-keepers, we have picked Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul, Nicholas Pooran and Quinton de Kock. Pant will return to the DC playing XI after serving a one-match suspension while de Kock should be backed to come good at this ground despite his poor form. 

In the batting section, we have gone with Jake Fraser-McGurk, Tristan Stubbs and David Warner. Warner hasn't been in great form but can't be written off. 

Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel are two all-rounders who must be picked. From bowling options, two wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Ravi Bishnoi can be of value. 

As for C and VC, Fraser-McGurk and Rahul seem like the best options. The Aussie batter has been ruthless, scoring 330 runs at a strike rate of 237 whereas Rahul has made 460 runs in the competition.

Match prediction: Delhi Capitals to win

The head to head record between these two teams is in favour of Lucknow Super Giants, who have won three out of four games. However, looking at their current form, DC has an edge heading into this clash. Delhi has more in-form batters such as Jake Fraser-McGurk, Rishabh Pant, Tristan Stubbs and Abhishek Porel. They also have a better bowling unit compared to Lucknow, whose bowlers were obliterated in the last game. Our match prediction is for Delhi Capitals to win. 

Toss prediction: Delhi Capitals to win the toss and bat first

The Arun Jaitley Stadium has been a host to 29 matches in the IPL since 2018, with the team batting first winning 15 games. Four games have been played here this season and all of them were won by the team batting first as the chasing teams found it hard to keep up with the high required rate. Our toss prediction is that Delhi Capitals will win the toss and opt to bat first. 

Man of the match prediction: Jake Fraser-McGurk 

The 22-year old Aussie sensation has taken the IPL by storm. Jake Fraser-McGurk has become one of the most feared batters in the league after only a handful of games. He has hammered 330 runs in just eight games in the tournament, averaging 41 at an incredible strike rate of 237. Fraser-McGurk has smashed four half centuries in the competition and you can back him to come good in this game.

Betting Odds

  • Delhi Capitals: 1.83 (PARIMATCH)
  • Lucknow Super Giants: 1.97 (PARIMATCH)

The bookmakers think Delhi Capitals have a better chance of winning this game. DC has 1.83 odds of winning this match whereas LSG has a harder task with 1.97 odds.
