LSG vs DC Prediction: As the bandwagon of the IPL moves forward, two sides from the north – Lucknow Super Giants and Delhi Capitals will lock horns in the 15th match of the competition.
Lucknow Super Giants were stumbled in the opening hurdle as the fellow new entrant Gujarat Titans defeated them by 5 wickets in the opening game. However, the Super Giants got up quickly to win the next two matches back-to-back to reach 5th place in the points table with two wins and one loss after three matches.
Lucknow Supergiants defeated Chennai Super Kings by 6 wickets and then they toppled Sunrisers Hyderabad by 12 runs to register their 2nd win of the season.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals won a nail-biter as they defeated their arch-rivals Mumbai Indians by 4 wickets in their opening game. Delhi Capitals were scratchy in the win and Gujarat Titans exposed them in the 2nd game after winning by 14 runs.
Delhi Capitals will face a stern test in the form of Super Giants and they will look to be at their best to register a much-needed victory.

It is a batting-friendly wicket and it could be a high-scoring encounter. However, there is some grass on the surface and the new-ball bowlers should get some movement and bounce as well.

IPL 2022 Match Prediction: Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals
Lucknow Super Giants have a rock-solid opening pair in KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock. However, Manish Pandey’s form will be a cause of concern for the team management. Moreover, it might also be the last chance for Evin Lewis to prove himself before Marcus Stoinis becomes available for selection.
In the bowling unit, Jason Holder has added some solidity to the attack. Andrew Tye had an average last game and he has to pull up his socks now.
For Delhi Capitals, the return of David Warner is a welcome sight. However, the number three position is not settled after the failures of Mandeep Singh. Delhi Capitals are also lacking the fire in the bowling but Mustafizur’s good form has made their bowling a bit better.
LSG Playing 11 (Probable): KL Rahul (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Andrew Tye/Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, and Avesh Khan.
DC Playing 11 (Probable): Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mandeep Singh, Rishabh Pant (C & WK), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, and Mustafizur Rahman
LSG vs DC Prediction: Probable Top Performers
KL Rahul: Rahul is one of the most consistent performers in the IPL. After getting out for a duck in the opening game, KL Rahul is getting back to his best as the right-handed southpaw has amassed 108 runs in the last two matches.
Avesh Khan: The young pacer entered the season with a huge price tag and he has managed to live up to the billing so far. Avesh is the leading wicket-getter for the Super Giants so far with 7 wickets in 3 matches at a fantastic strike rate of 10.
Prithvi Shaw: The batting has been a cause of concern so far for the Delhi Capitals this season. With 48 runs in 2 matches, Prithvi Shaw has shown glimpses of his brilliance but hasn’t been able to pile up a big total. However, it could be the game where he finds his feet against a thin bowling attack of Lucknow Super Giants.
Mustafizur Rahman: The Bangladesh import has a knack for outfoxing the batters with his clever variation. The left-handed pacer accounted for 3 wickets in the last game against Gujarat Titans and he will look to continue his good form.
