Delhi Capitals(DC) are set to face Lucknow Super Giants(LSG) in the 45th match of the Indian Premier League(IPL) in the first clash of the doubleheader on Sunday, May 1 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Delhi Capitals are sixth in the points table with 4 wins and as many losses. They have struggled to keep to a consistent eleven due to various factors. They have the players available for first eleven and they’ve started to hit the right notes even as there are rougher edges that would need polishing.
They pulled off a crucial win against the Kolkata Knight Riders but still, they have some areas to work on. Kuldeep Yadav bowled just three overs in the previous game despite picking up four wickets which did raise a few eyebrows and Mitchell Marsh desperately needs runs under his belt as well. The side has been bolstered with the inclusion of Chetan Sakariya who was impressive as well.
Lucknow Super Giants:
Lucknow Super Giants are third in the table with 6 wins and 3 losses in 9 matches. They have made some huge turnaround after outstanding individual performances, particularly in the batting, covering up for those not up to the mark as yet. The KL-Rahul side has benefited hugely with the inclusion of Mohsin Khan who has been quite impressive with the ball and they are likely to go in with the same playing XI for the upcoming fixture as well.
