DC vs LKN Dream11 Match Preview

Delhi Capitals have won 4 games out of 8 they've played till now and are at the 6th position in the points table. This is a very crucial game for them and they will look to win this match and strengthen their chances of making it to the play-offs. They are heavily dependent on their openers to score the majority of the runs. Mitchell Marsh looked good in the last game while the middle-order including Rishabh Pant failed badly. Rovman Powell has done well in the last two games for them. The middle-order needs to start performing now.  

Their bowlers have been brilliant and were the heroes of their win in the last game against KKR. Shardul Thakur has been inconsistent but he has bowled well and economically as well. Mstafizur Rahman did really well in the last game while Chetan Sakariya was superb as well in his first game of the season.  Kuldeep Yadav has been super consistent and picked his second 4-for against KKR this season. Axar Patel was good with the ball as well. DC needs their middle-order to fire. 

 Watch: Rishabh Pant accidentally stumps Andre Russell with neat deflection onto stumps

Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, too are winning games mainly because of their bowlers. They defended 153 runs against the Punjab Kings and won the game by 20 runs. They have one of the best opening pairs of the league in KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock. Their middle-order has been a little inconsistent as well. Krunal Pandya and Deepak Hooda are the consistent performers. 

Their bowlers have been phenomenal. Dushmantha Chameera is in great form while Mohsin Khan bowled really well in the last game and picked 3 wickets. Krunal Pandya is in exceptional form with the ball and has been the star of his team in the last two games. Jason Holder has bowled very economically as well. Ravi Bishnoi hasn’t been at his best but he is bowling well. Lucknow needs support from their batters and they will be the team to beat in IPL 2022 if they can do so.
