The Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will take on the Delhi Capitals (DC) in match number 15 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Thursday. This will be an evening game and will thus begin at 7:30 PM IST.

LSG have made an impressive start to their IPL 2022 campaign. After going down to the Gujarat Titans (GT) by five wickets, they hit back by defeating Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by six wickets. In their last match, they beat the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 12 runs, defending a total of only 169 runs.

Looking at DC’s performances in the tournament so far, they have played only two matches, winning one and losing one. After coming from behind to register a remarkable win against the Mumbai Indians (MI) in their opening game, they slipped to a 14-run defeat against Gujarat, chasing a target of 172.

LSG will be pleased with their form in both the batting and bowling. KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, Evin Lewis, Deepak Hooda and even the young Ayush Badoni have made significant contributions with the willow. Manish Pandey’s lack of runs is the only cause of concern. Will Lucknow give him a longer run?

Avesh Khan was excellent with the ball in the last game while Ravi Bishnoi just keeps improving. In Krunal Pandya and Jason Holder, LSG have two handy all-rounders.

LSG predicted XI: 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 will receive a big boost as David Warner will be available for selection. They would be hoping for him to fire straightaway. On paper, DC look a strong outfit. But Prithvi Shaw hasn’t fired with the bat while Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel have been below expectations with the ball.

DC predicted XI: Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mandeep Singh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman

Top fantasy picks for LSG vs DC clash: Quinton de Kock, Evin Lewis, Jason Holder, David Warner, Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep Yadav
