The Lucknow Super Giants will be taking on the Delhi Capitals in what promises to be a mouth-watering fixture where we will be witnessing some of the best young talent as well as established names who will be willing to settle some scores of old. Both teams are coming to this fixture on the back of contrasting fortunes in their previous games, with the team from the capital having a good IPL 2021 tournament.
While Lucknow will be eager to continue this winning momentum that they have in their midst, the Capitals would want to return back to winning ways as quickly as possible. Both sides will want to play a good cricket match and will want to win, in order to make a serious impact in the current tournament.
Lucknow Super Giants
The Lucknow Super Giants are making a habit of coming out of sticky situations in every game. But the biggest positive in all this is that they have been winning, and at the end of the day that is exactly what matters. In every game, the Super Giants are getting contributions from different players. In their game against the Sunrisers, it was KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda with the bat who took them from 27-3 to 169. And with the ball, it was the excellence of Avesh Khan that took them to victory with an exemplary exhibition of death bowling. The arrival of Jason Holder has added another dimension to the team both in terms of batting and bowling, making this team a much more formidable prospect. Two wins in two, this team is just getting started.
The Capitals will be very disappointed after losing to the Gujarat Titans in a game that they had in control for the majority of the time. All it took was one freak run-out, and the entire Delhi innings collapsed like a pack of cards. In their post-match team meeting, coach Ricky pointing went on to specify that they indeed played “average” cricket, and they should have won 2 games rather than splitting their games. Overall, this team is still in good stead, with the form of Kuldeep Yadav a breath of fresh air for both player and team. With the likes of David Warner still to come, this team can only get better and be there in and about the top-4 in the points table.
This is the first-ever meeting between the two sides in the IPL.
Delhi lost the game in a matter of small margins, while Lucknow won the game in that exact fine margin. This could be the major point that could decide the match. However, all is said and done, expect the newcomers to edge the Capitals in a thriller.
