IPL 2022: Lucknow Super Giants Defeated Delhi Capitals | Third Consecutive Win
On Sunday, the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) held their nerve to defeat the Delhi Capitals (DC) by 6 runs in the gripping 45th match of the IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. After setting a difficult 196 to win, LSG defeated DC at 189/7 to earn their seventh win in ten games and move into second place in the standings.
Mohsin Khan took 4/16 for LSG. Earlier in the day, LSG captain and opener KL Rahul continued his great form with a 77, while Deepak Hooda also hit a half-century – 52 off 34 – to assist his team to a massive 195/3 against Delhi Capitals. Only Shardul Thakur, who took all three wickets, was able to put his name in the wickets column as the DC bowlers were off-color, conceding plenty of boundaries.
Rahul chose to bat first and made one change to his XI, benching fast bowler Avesh Khan and replacing him with allrounder Krishnappa Gowtham. DC, on the other hand, has remained untouched. LSG is on a two-game winning streak and will aim for a hat-trick of victories. DC comes into this match on the heels of a convincing victory over Kolkata Knight Riders.
As they take on the high-flying Lucknow Super Giants, the Delhi Capitals will be trying to make it two wins in a straight. So far, DC has been plagued by inconsistency, but the good news is that the club now has all of its top talents available. LSG, on the other side, is now ranked third in the ranking table. A win would bring them up to second place in the standings, increasing their chances of making the playoffs. This is the second time these two clubs have met this season, with LSG winning the first encounter last month.
