Lucknow Super Giants had a brilliant outing in the IPL 2022 as they managed to reach the playoffs. However, they lost to RCB in the Eliminator. Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals failed to make it to the top 4 after finishing 5th.
Both team have retained the core of the squad with minor changes. Delhi Capitals, however, has suffered a massive blow as skipper Rishabh Pant is out of the tournament having met a serious accident last year. In his absence, David Warner has been named the team’s captain.
The pitch will be a good one to bat, as has been the case in Lucknow in recent few matches. A score of around 170 will be just par.
The weather will be cloudy with the temperature ranging between 28 and 18 degrees. There is an 11 per cent chance of rain as well.

David Warner will have a big role to play for Delhi in Pant’s absence. He is a veteran in this format of the game and has been one of the most consistent performers in IPL history. He also has experience of leading a team to an IPL win.
KL Rahul has been out of form in international cricket but he is a beast when it comes to IPL. He has scored over 500 runs in the last few seasons. He is Lucknow’s best batter and will be eyeing a good start to the tournament.
Deepak Hooda will bring a lot of value to the Lucknow team. He is a solid batter in the middle order and can play according to the situation and his off-spinners will be very handy as well.
If Prithvi Shaw gets going, he will raise Delhi’s chances of a win significantly. Shaw at times can play at a better strike rate than Warner, which is a tough thing to do. Shaw stays at the wicket for 10 overs, Delhi will have enough runs on the board.
The young spinner can be a game-changer for Lucknow. He had a fruitful season for the franchise last year and will be looking to replicate his performance in IPL 2023.
