KKR vs MI Dream11 Prediction

Despite a depleted squad, Delhi Capitals managed to win the first IPL 2022 encounter against Mumbai Indians. They were close to making it two in two but eventually lost to the Gujarat Titans by 14 runs. For the next game, though, Delhi Capitals will receive a boost with the return of some big names in David Warner and Anrich Nortje.

Lucknow Super Giants are almost at their full strength and all they need to do is start piling up the wins. They have already won 2 out of their 3 games and the exceptional talent they have unearthed in Ayush Badoni is the talk of the town. KL Rahul has been quite active on the field and their middle order has been firing which is one of the most important boxes to tick so early in the competition.

Lucknow Super Giants- Team News- Marcus Stoinis To Remain Unavailable

LSG have all of their overseas players except Australian al-rounder Marcus Stoinis who will be in quarantine after having finished the one-off T20I game on the 5th of April against and in Pakistan. BCCI has made the 3-day hard quarantine mandatory and hence even accounting for the bubble to bubble transfer, Marcus Stoinis has to serve the quarantine which will make him miss the game against Delhi Capitals.

Lucknow Super Giants played Jason Holder directly in the 11 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and it paid off big time for them. The lanky Caribbean pacer bowled some crucial overs well enough to gain 2 points for Lucknow. Skipper KL Rahul would be disappointed with his batting performance though as he was not able to accelerate in the middle overs.

Avesh Khan (4/24), Jason Holder (3/34), and Krunal Pandya (2/27) were the chief wicket-takers against Hyderabad after KL Rahul (68) and Deepak Hooda (51) shone with the bat.

But Lucknow’s all-rounder Deepak Hooda made sure that Lucknow Super Giants had momentum in their favor with some extraordinary hitting in the middle overs. This game could well be one last opportunity for Quinton de Kock and Evin Lewis to prove their worth, as one of them will have to sit out when Marcus Stoinis arrives.

Delhi Capitals – Team News- David Warner Will Be Available But Anrich Nortje May Not Be Rushed Against Lucknow

David Warner, who has served his quarantine period will be available for the next game against Lucknow. This will be his first game of the season and the fact that he has already played for this franchise previously makes this a special occasion.

Delhi Capitals need a stabilizer at the top of the order and they will be mighty pleased with the availability of David Warner at the top of the order. The fact that he complements Prithvi Shaw is also an excellent aspect of the Delhi-based franchise.

DC is also expecting Anrich Nortje for this game who was originally reported to be available for DC from the 3rd game of the season but there is no clarity over his availability yet although he has started training with the team.

As Anrich Nortje is their most important bowler, it will only be wise if they don’t rush the Protea into action. The twin failures from Mandeep Singh will open the door for the likes of KS Bharat and Sarfaraz Khan for this game.

So far Delhi Capitals have played two matches, and they share an equal number of wins and losses. But with the inclusion of players like Anrich Nortje, David Warner, and Mitchell Marsh, DC’s squad will be even stronger.
