LKN vs DC Predicted Playing XI
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
Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Prithvi Shaw, Tim Seifert, Mandeep Singh, Lalit Yadav, David Warner, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Mustafizur Rahman
There is expected to be good bounce and carry, which will help the pacers initially. The ball will come on to the bat nicely. But batters will have to work slightly hard since it is a big ground. Chasing is a good option on this surface.
LKN vs DC Match Prediction
Lucknow’s batting has been inconsistent so far. Moreover, Delhi Capitals will be strengthened by the return of their core players. Thus, they now appear more balanced. That said, Delhi start as favorites to beat Lucknow Super Giants in this clash.
