In the 15th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will take on Delhi Capitals (DC) at Mumbai’s Dr DY Patil Sports Academy on Thursday.
After two wins out of three matches, Lucknow are placed at the fifth spot in the points table with a positive NRR of 0.193. On the other hand, Delhi, with one victory out of two games, are positioned at seventh place with a positive NRR of 0.065.
The pitch at DY Patil Academy offers equal support to both seamers and spinners. Surviving the initial phase will help batters find their rhythm here. Dew is likely to impact, therefore, bowling first will be an ideal choice here.
