Delhi Capitals will expect their batsmen to do better than their previous match in the IPL match here on Sunday while Lucknow Supergiants will be desperate to reduce their excessive dependence on their captain KL Rahul. Delhi Capitals had a tough few weeks due to the arrival of Covid-19 cases and the ‘no-ball’ controversy but captain Rishabh Pant and his team came out of it to register a four-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders.

Delhi’s chances of reaching the playoffs and the middle order crumbling while chasing small targets is a matter of concern. David Warner has continued his fine form but fellow opener Prithvi Shaw has not been able to convert a good start into a long innings. The team has tried many batsmen at number three, including Captain Pant, but so far it has not been able to find the right player for this position.

Mitchell Marsh has returned after completing isolation after Covid-19 and this Australian all-rounder will be expected to perform well. Pant himself has not been able to play the explosive innings for which he is famous. He will have to shoulder more responsibility along with all-rounders Lalit Yadav, Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel. There has also been some criticism of Pant’s captaincy, who did not allow Kuldeep Yadav to bowl the fourth over against Kolkata Knight Riders despite his impressive performance at four for 14 in three overs.

Delhi Capitals will be relieved that Rovman Powell is finally playing the finisher’s role well. The West Indies player came close to achieving the impossible target against Rajasthan Royals and did the same in the match against Kolkata. Delhi’s bowling department has done well.

Lucknow is moving towards securing the playoff spot. They are third on the points table with six wins from nine matches. Captain KL Rahul has scored two centuries and a half-century so far this season and his innings have played an important role in the team’s victory. This dependence is so high that in the three matches the team has lost, Rahul did not bat. The team has very good players in Quinton de Kock, Ayush Badoni, Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya and they will have to take up their responsibility. The team also has Jason Holder and Marcus Stoinis.
