The DC vs LSG IPL 2024 reverse fixture of IPL 2024 will be played in Delhi on May 14 from 7.30 pm IST. This is the final league game for the Capitals while the penultimate one for LSG. Both teams need a win to stay alive in the playoff race. Delhi Capitals lost their previous game against RCB which has opened up that table with all kinds of possibilities now. 

DC vs LSG Team Analysis

Delhi Capitals 

Delhi Capitals won their previous match at home against Rajasthan Royals by 20 runs. The win kept them relevant and alive in the race to the playoffs. However, the loss to RCB has now made things difficult for the franchise needing to win their final game.

Rishabh Pant after being banned for one match will return to the XI to lead the side. He has been an impactful player for the Capitals and has batted, led, and kept brilliantly for them.

The return of Pant will bolster the chances of his team winning the match. They are playing at home where they have won three out of the four games played so far and will be gunning for a win against LSG. 

Lucknow Super Giants 

LSG are coming back to play this match after a five-day break to play this match. SRH blew them away in the last game as they chased down 166 in less than 10 overs and won with 10 wickets to spare. 

The team owner was seen to have an animated conversation with skipper KL Rahul after the match. His behavior towards Rahul was criticized by cricket experts and fans alike. 

There are reports that L Rahul will lead the team in the last two games and will not be retained by the franchise in the last season. Whether he plays the last two games will be an interesting observation.

DC vs LSG Key Factors 

Pitch Conditions 

The Arun Jaitley Stadium has been a high-scoring venue so far with the bowlers travelling to all parts. The key for Delhi in this match will be their spinners, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel. 

It is expected that the spinners from the visiting team will also hold the key. 200 has been breached almost every time batting first and this is expected to be another high-scoring contest.

Form and Fitness 

Rishabh Pant will return to the aide after serving his one-match ban in the match against RCB. There are still concerns over David Warner's fitness in the DC camp.

There are no fitness concerns with the current squad of players for LSG. Mayank Yadav is already ruled out for them from this season. 

Talking about the form for both teams, they will be under pressure knowing that it is a must-win game to make the playoffs. The team that keeps their nerves will emerge victorious. LSG are on shaky grounds, especially after their last defeat to SRH.

Tactical Acumen

Rishabh Pant has been brilliant as captain, especially in the match against Delhi Capitals and RCB. There is a lot of confusion in the LSG camp as to who will lead the side in the last two games with KL Rahul unlikely to lead and probably play in the last two games.
