Lucknow Super Giants are one of a number of teams with four points to their name. They can separate themselves from the rest of the four-point holders with a win here – which will be their third straight. Standing in their way are Delhi Capitals, whom they face on April 7 (Thursday) at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. The match is to begin at 7:30pm IST.

Teams Status

Lucknow Super Giants 

After starting their first-ever season with a defeat to fellow newcomers Gujarat Titans, Lucknow Super Giants have bounced back in style by notching back-to-back wins over Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The win over CSK was the more impressive of the two as it came in a successful chase of 211 runs.

Their best player over this three-game stretch has been Avesha Khan, who has seven wickets to his name already. Deepak Hooda also has two half centuries to his name and looks to be in superb touch.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals have blown hot and cold over their first two matches: the hot being their win in their first game against five-time champions Mumbai Indians and the cold being their loss to expansion franchise Gujarat Titans.

New recruit David Warner is in contention for this game but Delhi might be better served with him on the bench for this one as Lucknow legspinner Ravi Bishnoi is very effective against left-handed batters, thanks to his deceptive googly.

Another big boost for Delhi is the availability of South African pacer Anrich Nortje, who has been declared fully fit.

Delhi may have two less points than Lucknow at this stage but they bring with them more than a decade of IPL experience. This is why Delhi are the favourites for this IPL fixture. Parimatch has Delhi priced at 1.78 and Lucknow at 2.0. Paripesa has Delhi available for 1.86 and Lucknow for 2.068. Lastly, Sportsbet has Delhi priced at 1.79 and Lucknow at 2.02.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: David Warner total runs Under 26.5 @ 1.87

Even though we do not think it’s wise to play David Warner, Delhi may not be able to resist the temptation. They will play the Aussie owing to his big name and reputation without thinking of his horrible form last year. Warner will play and fall short of the 26.5-run mark. That’s our play. The odds for this have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Quinton de Kock to score more than 24.5 runs @ 1.87

One man who does love it in India and against Indian bowlers is South African keeper-batter Quinton de Kock. In his three outings, he has failed twice and scored a half century once. He is due some more runs and instantly. Therefore, we back him to score more than 24.5 runs @ odds of 1.87 (Parimatch).


Lucknow’s KL Rahul and Delhi’s Rishabh Pant form the spines of their respective batting units. If either team manages to get the other one’s star batter out early, the game could swing in their favour.
