In the 64th match of the IPL 2024, the Delhi Capitals (DC) will face off against the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the iconic Arun Jaitley Stadium. This high-stakes encounter is scheduled to kick off at 7:30 PM IST on May 14th.

After a disheartening defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Delhi Capitals find themselves in a tight spot. Their playoff hopes hang by a thread, necessitating a win in their final game. Rishabh Pant’s return to lead the team adds weight to their aspirations. However, their recent performance, falling short in a chase of 188, raises questions about their form and resilience.

On the flip side, Lucknow Super Giants also find themselves in a must-win situation. Two consecutive losses have dimmed their chances, putting immense pressure on the likes of KL Rahul, Marcus Stoinis, and Nicholas Pooran to deliver a stellar performance. LSG’s batting lineup needs to fire on all cylinders if they are to keep their campaign alive.
