Delhi Capitals (DC) had won the toss & opted to bowl first against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). LSG scored 193-6, Kyle Mayers was in a beast mode where he scored 73 runs in 38 balls and he smashed 2 fours & 7 huge sixes. LSG have got lethal pace duo in the form of Mark Wood & Avesh Khan. Mark Wood‘s experience would be invaluable.
Apart from DC left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed, all the bowlers were taken to the cleaners. LSG batters didn’t panic after playing a string of dot balls & capitalized on loose deliveries where Nicholas Pooran played a breezy cameo of 36 runs in 21 balls where he struck 2 fours & 3 sixes. It was quite astonishing to see that the LSG batter struck 15 sixes while scoring 193 runs.

Uphill Task for DC
DC skipper David Warner now needs to make sure that he bats till the end of the innings & capitalizes on loose deliveries & at the same, it won’t be easy for the new batter to go berserk from ball 1. All eyes would be on Sarfaraz Khan as the right-handed batter is in sublime form in the domestic circuit.
It won’t be a surprise if Mark Wood bowls another over as he is generating sheer pace & so far has shown good control over his line & length. The pitch doesn’t have any significant demons where LSG will have to keep on picking wickets as DC bat quite deep as they have got the likes of Rovman Powell & Rilee Rossouw present.
