IPL 2022 Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Match Details, Team News, Pitch Report, and the Match Prediction

May 1, 2022

The Indian Premier League 2022 is into its most important weekend and the 45th game would see the Delhi Capitals face a confident Lucknow Super Giants. The Capitals registered a win against Kolkata Knight Riders in the leadup to this game. The Super Giants won comfortably in a low-scoring game against the Punjab Kings.

Delhi Capitals have struggled with their consistency. Apart from a couple of batsmen, most others have looked ordinary in most games. Their bowling attack lacks depth and the side would be worried about that. The Super Giants have young players who have risen to the challenge.  A win would serve both sides well in terms of their standing on the points table and we hope to see a close contest.



Rishabh Pant’s side did well against Kolkata Knight Riders in their last game to win it by 4 wickets. However, the side has struggled with consistency. They haven’t won back-to-back games this season which would be worrying the team management. Bowling form has been a problem area for the side and having lost against the Super Giants earlier, Pant would want his key players to deliver in this game and move up on the points table.

David Warner has played like a champion, and he would look to team up with Prithvi Shaw and set up a good opening wicket stand. Mitchell Marsh is yet to deliver on the promise and the side would like him to build partnerships with Lalit Yadav and Pant. In Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, and Shardul Thakur the side has good hitters of the ball, and they will have to come up with contributions.

Their bowling has struggled but the side did well against KKR in the last game. Mustafizur Rahman has been in good form, and he needs to deliver early blows sharing the new ball with Chetan Sakariya. Kuldeep Yadav and Patel form a good spin bowling pair and the side would need a good show from them.  Thakur’s form is a bit of worry, and he must deliver for the side to win.
Top Batsman – David Warner
Top Bowler – Mustafizur Rahman


Back-to-back wins have put KL Rahul’s side in a comfortable position on the points table. They did well to defend the small total against the Punjab Kings in the last game to win it by runs. Rahul would like to carry this form forward and repeat their success against the Capitals. A win here would take them closer to a berth in the playoffs.

Rahul and Quinton de Kock have done well opening the batting and the side would need a good show from them considering the form of other players. Deepak Hood needs to score runs at a faster pace and he must anchor the middle order with Krunal Pandya and Marcus Stoinis. Jason Holder, Ayush Badoni, and Dushmantha Chameera make it a formidable batting line-up.

Their bowlers did well under pressure in the last game with Dushmantha Chameera and Mohsin Khan doing well with the new ball. The same would be needed from them in this game. Avesh Khan continues to impress and along with Ravi Bishnoi, Holder and Pandya make it a well-balanced attack.
Top Batsman – KL Rahul
Top Bowler – Dushmantha Chameera


Venue: Wankhede Stadium
Date & Time: May 1, 3:30 PM IST


The weather is expected to be hot and humid in Mumbai on May 1. The pitch has looked good so far for batting this season and we expect batsmen to have a cakewalk in this game. Bowlers have struggled here and the side that bats first shall be aiming to get near the 200-run mark.


Wankhede Stadium Mumbai has witnessed several high-scoring contests this season and has always been one of the best batting wickets in the country. The smaller size of the park makes it easy for the batsmen here. There is a small margin of error for the bowlers who must be on the money to do well on this surface.


It is an afternoon game, and the batting conditions are expected to be best at the start of the game. We have seen some of the biggest totals for the season at this venue. While teams have won chasing, the side winning the toss would opt to bat first when bowling conditions are expected to be tough.


The Wankhede pitch has been really good for batting and a high-scoring thriller can be expected in the upcoming fixture. The small boundaries will make it difficult to defend on this wicket and hence, the captain winning the toss is expected to bowl first.



Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya


Quinton de Kock (wk), KL Rahul (c), Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan



KL Rahul was dismissed by a dream delivery from Kagiso Rabada and there was not much he could have done with the delivery. The LSG skipper despite the failure in the previous game is second on the list for most runs in the tournament this season and he has piled up 374 runs in 9 games so far with two centuries. The right-hander will be looking to continue his assault in the upcoming fixture.


Avesh Khan has picked up 11 wickets in 8 games so far in the tournament and he has been playing a crucial role for the LSG side in the back end of the innings when it comes to death bowling. The right-arm quick could not add wickets to his tally in the previous game but nailed his yorkers to ensure his side ended up winning.


Delhi Capitals must show consistency. They will need to get out of this habit of losing alternate games. Their bowlers have a big role to play for the side to win here and the middle order also needs to build partnerships. The Lucknow Super Giants have depth in their batting and bowling line-ups. They come here with massive wins, and this would put them ahead of the Delhi Capitals in this contest.

Lucknow Super Giants to win.
