Even without Rishabh Pant, Delhi Capitals have a lot of firepower in their ranks. They are likely to go for their big shots which makes them favourites to hit the most 6s. I am backing Delhi Capitals to hit the most match 6s.

  • Lucknow Super Giants are without Quinton de Kock for this match (IPL)
  • Quinton de Kock or KL Rahul top-scored for Lucknow Super Giants in 11 of their last 15 matches (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have hit the most 6s in 9 of their last 14 matches (IPL)
  • David Warner has scored at least 42 in 6 of his last 11 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


As Lucknow Super Giants made their debut only last year, there have only been two matches against Delhi Capitals. Both were won by Lucknow side.

Quinton de Kock scored 80 as Lucknow chased down 150 in the 20th over in the first of those matches. Mohsin Khan then took four wickets to give them a six-run victory in the second match. Both these players are missing in action in this match for Lucknow.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow were one of the best sides in the IPL regular season last year racing off the blocks. At one stage they looked set to finish top of the standings but eventually finished third.

They then lost in the eliminator to the Royal Challengers Bangalore. This year they added Nicholas Pooran to their side while also bringing in Jaydev Unadkat.

KL Rahul’s side will be banking on a clutch of all-rounders as a mix of domestic and international options gives them flexibility.

Lucknow Super Giants Team News


The Lucknow side will miss the services of Quinton de Kock who is with his national team. Left-arm quick Mohsin Khan is also out and is expected to miss a major part of the season.

Delhi Capitals Form


Delhi finished 5th in the group stages last season with seven wins and seven losses. They were very close to making it to the playoffs, but in the end missed out for the first time since 2018.

This year, they signed Phil Salt and Rilee Rossouw to strengthen their batting. David Warner has been named as the team captain after Rishabh Pant’s horrific accident ruled him out of the season.

While questions remain over Pant’s replacement as a ‘keeper, they are likely to go with Sarfaraz Khan’s part-time ability while Abhishek Porel is signed as a replacement.

Delhi Capitals Team News


Delhi Capitals will be without their main bowlers – Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada for the first match.

Verdict

Lucknow Super Giants have been brilliant last season but the absence of de Kock and Mohsin Khan takes some sheen off their side. Delhi Capitals are missing Rishabh Pant, but have enough batting firepower to make a dash. I am backing Delhi Capitals to score the most 6s of this match.

With the tournament offering new rules like impact player, keep an eye on who’s getting in and out during the substitution process. That could decide your intra-game picks.
