LSG Team News & Playing 11
LSG Team News
The only marquee player not available for the Lucknow Super Giants will be South Africa wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock who is busy with his national commitments.
LSG Key Players
- KL Rahul- The 30-year-old Indian batsman scored the team’s best 484 runs in the previous edition. However, his form in recent months has dropped. The IPL 2023 could provide the perfect opportunity for the LSG captain to earn his place back in the squad for the upcoming ICC World Cup later this year.
- Avesh Khan- The electrifying right-arm pacer managed to take 10 wickets in his last 8 games for LSG. However, his only problem was his economy rate, leaking more than 8.8 runs per over. This 27-year-old pacer will be crucial in securing early wickets with the new ball for his team in the powerplay.
- Krunal Pandya- The Indian all-rounder can not only provide a quality finish to LSG but can even take much-required wickets in the middle overs. Given that the wicket in Lucknow can suit Krunal to spin the ball both ways, he is much more likely to bowl out his quota of four overs.
LSG Possible Impact Players Substitute
Ayush Badoni, Krishnappa Gowtham, Prerak Mankad, and Karan Sharma
While Badoni can be a crucial player if LSG loses wickets early, the likes of Gowtham and Karan can come in handy on a track that favors the slow spinners.
LSG Team Form
The 2022 season was a successful campaign for LSG as they managed to secure a berth in the playoffs in their very first season. However, they were knocked out by RCB in the eliminator.

LSG Predicted Playing 11
KL Rahul (C), Mayank Yadav, Avesh Khan, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran (Wk), Ravi Bishnoi, Naveen-Ul-Haq, Daniel Sams, Manan Vohra
DC Team News & Playing 11
DC Team News
With Rishabh Pant out of the season, David Warner - a former silverware-winning captain with SRH - is likely to lead the newly-shaped side. However, their bowling department will be short as Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi won’t be available to feature in the game due to national responsibilities.
DC Key Players
- David Warner- He is the only player in IPL’s history to win the orange cap thrice and if DC is to contest for the playoff berth this time, Warner should be chasing his fourth. Having scored 367 runs from his last 10 matches, batting at an average of 52, Warner will be required to be at his best as the Capitals will miss out on the counter-attacking prowess of Rishabh Pant.
- Khaleel Ahmed- The left-arm pacer can get the ball to move away from the right-handed batsman which enables him to get early wickets in the powerplay. The 25-year-old has registered 9 wickets in his last 7 matches against his name.
- Axar Patel- He has been the find of Indian cricket over the last few months in Ravindra Jadeja’s absence on the international stage. Having the ability to contribute with the bat as well as with the ball, Axar will have the chance to clinch wickets for DC as the nature of the wicket suits the spinners. Plus his wicket-to-wicket length can help him even more on this track in Lucknow.
DC Possible Impact Players Substitute
Sarfaraz Khan, Yash Dhull, Abhishek Porell, and Ishant Sharma
While Ishant can be used to bring in experience into the bowling lineup, Dhull and Porell are exceptional young talents who can stabilize the batting innings in case Marsh and Warner fail to fire. Lastly, we have witnessed Sarafaraz Khan provide a quality end by being explosive in the latter overs.
DC Team Form
The spoken off franchise was just 2 points away from securing a berth in the playoffs last time around. They finished their campaign with 14 points.
DC Predicted Playing 11
David Warner (C), Rilee Rossouw, Prithvi Shaw, Manish Pandey, Axar Patel, Khaleel Ahmed, Chetan Sakariya, Phil Salt (Wk), Mustafizur Rahman, Lalit Yadav, Mukesh Kumar

Who will win Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match?
There is no doubt in stating that the performance of the top-order batsmen and the bowling unit could well decide the outcome of this game. On those aspects both these concerned teams have some noticeable absentees. But KL Rahul’s LSG does appear to be a more set team on paper.
LSG vs DC Prediction
There is no doubt that Match 3 has all the ingredients to become a nail-biting contest. But with Ngidi and Nortje both being unavailable, the Capitals could be restricted in the bowling department.
