Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Lucknow Super Giants and Delhi Capitals lockhorns in Match 26 of the 2024 Indian Premier League on Friday evening at the BRSABVE Cricket Stadium. The Super Giants have six points from their first four games with Delhi Capitals bottom of the table with one win from five. Read on as we preview this match which gets underway on 12th April at 19:30 local time in Lucknow.

Lucknow Super Giants are in excellent form and have been producing consistent winning margins over recent games. At the same time, they will believe that there are plenty of areas of their team which could still improve and we are backing them to get another win in this clash.

Although they were beaten in the bottom of the table clash against Mumbai Indians in the last match, Delhi Capitals did improve on the thrashing they had received in their previous game. However, with a bowling unit which does not seem to have the ability to keep the runs down, we expect them to struggle once more in this clash.

LSG Team News & Playing 11

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.

LSG Key Players

  • 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

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

Slow left-arm spinner Manimaran Siddharth came into the side for Marcus Stoinis during the fielding innings in the last match but Lucknow may want to utilise Stoinis’ bowling in this game so could sub out an alternative batter.

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.

DC Key Players

  • 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.
  • Tristan Stubbs – The young South African looked like he was playing a different sport to the rest of the players in Match 20 as he hit seven sixes as well as three fours in his brilliant and unbeaten 25-ball innings.
  • 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.

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.

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.

DC Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Abishek Porel, Tristan Stubbs, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Kumar Kushagra, Jhye Richardson, Anrich Nortje

Who will win Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match?

With the contrasting form of the sides, we have Lucknow Super Giants as the top team for this match. Delhi Capitals certainly have the batting power but they are yet to show enough consistency from their bowling attack.

🏆 LSG vs DC Prediction

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.
