Lucknow Super Giants

With six wins in nine games played out of nine, the Lucknow Super Giants have momentum and a win in their last game will make them brim with confidence. Despite plenty of experience, the Delhi Capitals have struggled to make decisions on merit, at least in the last couple of games. The Delhi Capitals are relying a little too heavily on their opening pairing of Prithvi Shaw and David Warner to get them off to a quick start.

Delhi Capitals

With the kind of top orders they have, Delhi Capitals were one of the most fearsome sides to enter the tournament. Not that they don't wear that label anymore, their performance certainly doesn't match the reputation their batsmen have. They have six games left, but that number might not sound like enough if they fail to record a win in this upcoming game.

In the current points table, the Delhi Capitals sit sixth with eight points from as many games. They've lost their way from one and won one in their last six games and will want to add some consistency to their lackluster campaign so far.

Not only did they fill up on the field. The decisions of the management and the skipper were questionable at times. Consequently, they also have a poor net run rate and would want to improve that as well as it can prove to be a crucial difference in the backend of the competition.

Still, all is not bleak for the capitals. Their opening pairing, David Warner and Prithvi Shaw, has been as good as anyone in the tournament so far. Both come off the blocks quickly and can take away the game in minutes. They also have a decent batting unit with the likes of Axar Patel and Shadul Thakur able to hit a seven and an eight respectively. However, they would have to find a better way to capitalize on Rovman Powell, whose great hitting skills have so far remained generally hidden from the competition. The way they did it, they should do everything right in this upcoming game. If they are able to do this, getting past them will be an immensely difficult task.

Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow Super Giants are lucky to be hovering in the top half of the points table, especially with the kind of outing they had on their final night. They lost momentum after a decent start, leaving KL Rahul furious at the end of the first innings. However, their bowlers had other ideas as they managed to constrain Punjab Kings with considerable ease.

The Lucknow Super Giants are in a stellar position on the points table and another win here will bring them much closer not only to a playoff berth but also to filling the two. Also, their decent .41 net run rate only helps them when things get tight towards the end of the game.

Prediction

This is an important game for both sides, albeit for different reasons. While the Lucknow Super Giants will be looking to secure a first-place finish in the playoffs, the Delhi Capitals would be quite struggling to stay in the billing. Both sides have their respective strengths and weaknesses, but the one with the best nerve would probably come out on top. Given that and the combinations of the two sides on paper, Lucknow Super Giants appear to be in a slightly better position. For that reason and the odds on offer, we would bet our money on a Delhi Capitals to win and so should you.

Our bet is on the Delhi Capitals to win the game by 1.96.
