The pitch is likely to have some grass coverage, which could aid the pacers during the early overs. Teams have piled up a large total on this ground in three of the four matches played here.
As a result, batters may find it simple to score runs here. The team that wins the toss will most likely bowl. However, it is all even as out of the 4 matches played on this track so far 2 are won by the side batting first and 2 by the chasers.
Lucknow Super Giants
When his team was suffering at 27 for 3, KL Rahul produced a captain’s knock against PBKS, scoring 68 runs off 50 balls. The right-hander took his time assessing the situation at the start but made up for it with lusty punches at the conclusion. He’ll continue to work on improving his strike rate so that his team can post even higher totals, especially when batting first.
Mustafizur Rahman made his debut for DC in the last game against GT. He went on to pick 3 wickets & gave away only 23 runs in 4 overs. Thus, he will be once again ready to haunt the batsman in the powerplay.
Lucknow Super Giants: KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Manish Pandey, Evin Lewis, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Andrew Tye, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan.
Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mandeep Singh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman.
