Delhi Capitals take on Lucknow Super Giants in a crucial game at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Sunday, May 1. This is Delhi’s ninth game of the season and every game from here on is a must-win for the side. They head into this game after beating KKR in their previous game.
Lucknow beat Delhi when the two teams met earlier in the season. This match thus is redemption for Delhi Capitals and also a changer to get to 10 points and stay alive in IPL 2022.
