Lucknow Super Giants have started the season with a bang.  They have now won two back-to-back games at home. Against Punjab Kings, they posted 199 which PBKS failed to chase. Against RCB, they defended 183 at the Chinnaswamy, and against GT they defended 163 at Ekana Stadium. Lucknow have figured out a way to win matches at home and the par score which is enough for them to win at home. The KL Rahul-led side would like to continue their winning momentum.

On the other hand, Delhi Capitals’ bowlers got a lot of beating in the last two games. Tristan Stubbs played a magnificent innings that helped the Capitals score up to 200 which actually reduced the margin of loss by runs. Prithvi Shaw played an excellent knock which kept the Capitals in the game initially. In bowling Axar Patel bowled beautifully and helped DC to restrict MI below 250. However he did not get the support from other bowlers. The Capitals will hope all these continue their good form and good support from bowlers as well.  Thus, the Capitals would like to come back to their winning momentum in the tournament.
