The Indian Premier League has witnessed nail-biting encounters as each day passes out. The 15th match of Tata IPL2022 will be played out between Lucknow Supergiants and Delhi Capitals at DY Patil Cricket Stadium, Navi Mumbai. LSG has won their last game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, but Gujarat Titans have comprehensively defeated Delhi. Rishabh Pant leading the team is not at its best when it comes to batting. The likes of Rovman Powell & Tim Seifert are not even at their par batting game. At the same time, the pace battery is executing a good effort in the middle in the absence of South African Ace Anrich Nortje.
On the other hand, the whole batting line-up of Lucknow is acting as saviours of each other, and the bowling department has become fantastic after the inclusion of Jason Holder into it. Marcus Stoinis will also be available from the next match as his quarantine formalities will be completed until the next game against Rajasthan. Currently, Lucknow is looking at the top as both units are complementing & co-operating with each other pretty decently. But, it will be interesting to see how DC bounce back from the last failure. So, here are a few predictions for the game between LSG & DC.
LSG vs DC: Match Predictions
The venue for the game between Lucknow & Delhi will be DY Patil Stadium. So, the bounce & turn for the bowlers, especially the turners, are almost inevitable. That’s why the spinners like Ravi Bishnoi, Kunal Pandya & Kuldeep Yadav would take wickets in bunches. Also, the spin specialist batters like KL Rahul, David Warner, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant & Lalit Yadav may score runs in big figures. In the last 9 T20 matches at DY Patil, the team that has batted second has won 8 games, and while batting, the first team has only succeeded in winning a solo match. So, the team that will win the toss would opt to bowl first.
LSG vs DC: Probable Playing XIs
Delhi Capitals lost their last game, but as David Warner & Anrich Nortje are finishing off their quarantine, they would join in this match with the playing XI of Delhi and make them victorious. At the same time, the availability of Marcus Stoinis is completely null for Lucknow Supergiants. And as they were at the top in the last game, the change is not even in their scheme of thoughts. So, here is the best composition of Playing XIs for both teams.
