Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals – Match Predictions

Lucknow Super Giants and Delhi Capitals both have pretty solid batting line-ups. But LSG have a better bowling attack on paper compared to DC, who will be missing their frontline pacer. Expect the Super Giants to get off to a winning start.

Probable 6s

Delhi Capitals’ batting line-up comprises David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Prithvi Shaw and Rovman Powell. LSG have KL Rahul, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda and Marcus Stoinis. Delhi batters hold a slight edge on the power-hitting front.

Our prediction: Delhi Capitals to hit most sixes in the match at 1/1 (2.00).

Probable Wickets

Ravi Bishnoi is one of the most skillful leg-spinners in the world and could get help off the pitch as well. Back Bishnoi to be Lucknow Super Giants’ top wicket-taker at 13/4 (4.25). Left arm seamer Khaleel Ahmed has taken nine wickets in his last seven games. You can back him to be the top bowler for Delhi Capitals at 13/5 (3.60).

Our prediction: Ravi Bishnoi to be Lucknow Super Giants’ highest wicket-taker at 13/4 (4.25).

Man of the Match

KL Rahul looked in pretty good touch in the recent ODI series against Australia and has a good record in the IPL. Rahul is a top candidate to be the player of the match at 8/1 (9.00). Among other good betting options are Ravi Bishnoi, Mitchell Marsh, Prithvi Shaw and Khaleel Ahmed.

Our prediction: KL Rahul to be the Man of the Match at 8/1 (9.00).

Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals Preview

Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants will be hoping to kick off their IPL 2023 campaign with a victory. Let’s take a look at both sides ahead of their encounter on Saturday night.

Lucknow Super Giants

The KL Rahul-led side had a pretty solid debut season last year, where they reached the playoffs. LSG secured third place on points table with nine wins in 14 matches. However, they lost the Eliminator by 14 runs. Rahul continues to lead them as they look to go deeper in IPL 2023.

The Super Giants have brought in Nicholas Pooran, spending big cash on the left hander in the auction. Quinton de Kock will be unavailable for the first game, which gives Kyle Mayers an opportunity at the top. Mark Wood missed the previous season but is set to feature this time.

Predicted XI: KL Rahul (c), Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jaydev Unadkat, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Mark Wood

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals finished fifth on the table in IPL 2022, winning seven and losing as many games. Ricky Ponting’s men will be eager to do better this year but they will have to do it without Rishabh Pant. David Warner has taken over the reins for IPL 2023.

With their wicket-keeper Pant unavailable, DC have decided to give the responsibility to Sarfaraz Khan. Rovman Powell and Rilee Rossouw are fighting for one spot in the playing XI. Anrich Nortje will miss this fixture due to international duties, with Mustafizur Rahman likely to fill in.

Predicted XI: David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Mitch Marsh, Manish Pandey, Sarfaraz Khan (wk), Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Chetan Sakariya
