IPL 2023 - LSG vs DC Predicted Playing 11 team. Check Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals Playing XI and Player Stats
Lucknow Super Giants will take on Delhi Capitals in the 3rd Match of the IPL 2023. LSG will play on their home ground in Lucknow for the first time. Both the teams faced each other twice in the last season and LSG won both the times.
KL Rahul will lead LSG once again this season while DC will be led by David Warner in the absence of Rishabh Pant.
Take a look at the predicted Playing 11 for the LSG vs DC match.
Lucknow Super Giants
- Top Order: Undoubtedly, LSG has the strongest top order with KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock opening the pair but Quinton will miss this match. Manan Vohra is expected to open alongside Rahul for this match.
- Middle Order: The middle-order of LSG comprises Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Nicholas Pooran, Marcus Stoinis. Pooran is roped in by LSG in the December auction and he will surely strengthen this middle-order. Hooda and Stoinis can score some crucial runs at a required strike rate.
- Lower Order: Naveen-ul-Haq and Daniel Sams will be part of the bowling unit alongside Ravi Bishnoi and Avesh Khan. Sams is the only player among these, who can be a handy batter as well but this is certainly a strong bowling unit which can help to restrict rival teams to lower scores.

- Top Order: Skipper David Warner will open the innings alongside Prithvi Shaw. Rilee Rossouw will be perfect for DC at the 3rd spot and he is in terrific form lately.
- Middle Order: Manish Pandey and Axar Patel will lead the middle order and Phil Salt will play his first ever IPL. Salt is an effective middle order batter and it will be interesting to see him in the IPL.
- Lower Order: The bowling looks a little weak currently in the absence of Anrich Nortje. Mustafizur Rahman is expected to lead the pace attack. He will be supported in the pace by Chetan Sakariya.
