DC vs LSG: Rishabh Pant will return, and a fierce clash is expected between Delhi-Lucknow to make it to the playoffs.

Posted on 14th May 2024 01:19 pm by rohit kumar

After a big defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last match, Lucknow Supergiants will face Delhi Capitals here on Tuesday to keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs, whose chances of making it to the knockouts are slim. Delhi captain Rishabh Pant will return in this match, who was suspended for one match.


Everyone's eyes will also be on Lucknow captain KL RahulThere is speculation that Rahul may step down from the captaincy or may take up the responsibility of captain in the last two matches before leaving the team. In both situations, this Indian batsman would like to respond with the bat and end the season brilliantly.


The road to Delhi is difficult

After the defeat against RCB, now Rishabh Pant's team has very little chance of reaching the playoffs, but it is still in the race. It will have to win against Lucknow at any cost, but to reach the playoffs it will have to depend on other matches.


If the Delhi team wins this match then it will have 14 points. It is a good thing for Delhi that Pant will be available in this match and his presence will strengthen the team. The team will have to improve its fielding against the Supergiants as the team dropped many catches against RCB.


Delhi will have to do this

The bowlers allowed the RCB batsmen to get off to a good start while their batsmen lost four wickets within four overs in the powerplay, reducing the team to its lowest score of 140 runs in the ongoing IPL. Delhi has scored more than 200 runs four times in the current season and the team will be hoping to repeat this performance to keep their hopes of making it to the playoffs alive.


Jack Fraser McGurk has been the most effective batsman for Delhi and has scored runs at a strike rate of over 273. Apart from them, Abhishek Porel and Tristan Stubbs also provide strength to the batting, but on many occasions, Delhi's batsmen have shown haste. In bowling, the spin pair of Kuldeep Yadav (15) and Akshar Patel (10) have together taken 25 wickets. Khalil Ahmed (16 wickets) and Mukesh Kumar (16 wickets) have also brought success to the team.


Lucknow is also worried about these things

Lucknow team is also running at seventh position with 12 points and is still out of the top four along with Delhi and RCB. Rahul and his team have got five days to overcome their weaknesses and will want to give their all against the Delhi team, which suffered a defeat against RCB on Sunday night.


Apart from Rahul, due to the poor form of Quinton de Kock, the Supergiants have had to struggle in the powerplay in the current season, which has put a lot of pressure on players like Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran. Puran and Ayush Badoni were successful in taking the team to a challenging score in the last match but the bowlers failed miserably.


The bowlers had given away 167 runs in only 9.4 overs. The team is also facing the brunt of the injury to fast bowler Mayank Yadav as Yash Thakur and Naveen Ul Haq have failed to fill his void. Mohsin Khan also did not play in the last match due to injury.
