One of the best things about this year’s IPL has been how K.L Rahul has shown his class and stamped his authority on the tournament and how he and Gautam Gambhir have guided a newly built franchise into the successful team that they have become. They are positioned at 3rd place on the points table with 12 points from their 9 games. They will be looking to keep that winning run going as we head into the business end of the tournament.
Delhi Capitals on the other hand will be hoping to find some continuous momentum. They win one game and lose the other and then so on and so forth. But now that they have found their solid playing XI and now that everyone knows what their roles are, one can expect them to hit the ground running. With the batting depth and quality they have in their squad, they will know that if they stick to the basics and play smartly, this Delhi Capitals team will be very hard to beat.
Both the teams will be hoping to get 2 crucial points from this game. Delhi will know that they really need to hit the ground running and get those two crucial points. Lucknow on the other hand will be vary of the fact that if they win this game, they will be climbing up to the second position on the points table. All in all there is a lot to play and this should make this game a very interesting one.
