A valiant effort from Axar Patel as he struck two sixes in the final over, bowled by Marcus Stoinis but they aren’t enough as Delhi Capitals finish with 189/7 in chase of 196. Lucknow Super Giants have won by six runs and climbed up to the second spot in IPL 2022 points table. Axar Patel remains unbeaten on 42 off 24, Kuldeep Yadav 16* off 8.
21 runs needed off the last over now. This is Gujarat Titans territory. Can Delhi Capitals pull this off? They have a capable batter Axar Patel still in the middle but he has some trouble with his hip requiring the intervention of team physio. Axar did end the over of Dushmantha Chameera with a six over long leg. Score 175/7 in 19 overs, chasing 196.
He gave away an easy boundary in the Powerplay and then off his own bowling he dropped Axar Patel twice off consecutive deliveries – both difficult catches though. The first one he stick out his left hand but failed to hold onto it and on the second he ran back and stretched forward but spilled it. And then he failed to collect a throw cleanly to take the bails off with Kuldeep Yadav miles away from the crease at the non-striker’s end. 10 runs from the over. DC 160/7 in 18 overs, chasing 196.
Mohsin Khan finishes is potentially match-winning spell of four overs – 4/16. Delhi Capitals 150/7. They need 46 runs to win off 18 now. Axar Patel has been joined by Kuldeep Yadav. This match is going LSG’s way.
WICKET! Another one bites the dust. Shardul Thakur had to go for the big hits. A cutter from Mohsin Khan and Thakur goes for the pull shot but doesn’t time it well to be caught by Krunal Pandya at deep midwicket. He scored 1. DC 148/7 in 16.4 overs, chasing 196.
WICKET! Mohsin Khan continues to land major blows to Delhi Capitals’ hopes. After David Warner and Rishabh Pant, he has gotten rid of dangerman Rovman Powell. A short delivery and Powell goes for the pull but doesn’t hit it well to hole out to Krunal Pandya in the deep. He scored 35. DC 146/6 in 16.1 overs, chasing 196.
Rovman Powell gets a boundary off Jason Holder – sliced over backward point. 11 runs from the over take Delhi Capitals to 146/5 in 16 overs. They need 50 to win now.
Lucknow Super Giants continued to build pressure on the Delhi batters but Axar Patel clears his front leg and launches one from Ravi Bishnoi over long-on for a six. 11 runs from it. Delhi need bigger over(s) than this. Score 135/5 in 15 overs, chasing 196.
Dushmantha Chameera is back into the attack. Pressure back on Delhi Capitals now with the dismissal of Rishabh Pant. Just four singles in the over. Asking rate is now exactly 12 an over. Axar Patel has joined Rovman Powell in the middle now. DC 124/5 in 14 overs, chasing 196. They need 72 off 36. Time-out.
WICKET! Mohsin Khan has gotten rid of the well-settled Rishabh Pant on 44. This might be the turning point of this contest. Pant wanted to flick this away, lazily, but misses and gets bowled. DC 120/5 in 13 overs, chasing 196.
Rovman Powell shows his brute force. He has teared into Krishnappa Gowtham to bring Delhi Capitals back in the chase. A pull shot over deep midwicket for a six and then a slog-sweep over long-on for six more. He then finished the over by muscling a straight hit past the bowler for four. 18 runs from it. DC 113/4 in 12 overs, chasing 196.
DROPPED! The captain KL Rahul is the culprit this time. This would have been the match for LSG had Rahul managed to hold onto the difficult catch at extra cover as the ball bursts through his palms. DC 95/4 in 11 overs, chasing 196.
Jason Holder is back into the attack. This is a decent over from the big man barring one delivery as Rishabh Pant continues to go after boundaries – sliced over backward point region for four. 7 runs from it. DC 94/4 in 10 overs, chasing 196.
WICKET! Ravi Bishnoi strikes to get rid of Lalit Yadav on 3. A googly from the leggie and Lalit has been outfoxed to be bowled. LSG continue to hit back. DC 86/4 in 8.5 overs, chasing 196.
Well, replay of Mitchell Marsh dismissal throws up an interesting picture. Ultraedge didn’t show any spike. What did Marsh hear then? Big moment in this match. Had he reviewed, Marsh would have been not out. 5 runs and a wicket in the over. DC 78/3 in 8 overs, chasing 196. Lalit Yadav has joined Rishabh Pant.
WICKET! Krishnappa Gowtham has more than redeemed himself for that fielding mishap in the previous over. He has gotten rid of dangerous Mitchell Marsh by having him out caught-behind off his very first delivery of the match. Marsh scored 37. DC 73/3 in 7.1 overs, chasing 196.
Ravi Bishnoi introduced after the end of Powerplay and first time-out – LSG needed that badly considering how things were moving away from them. A misfield in the deep from Krishnappa Gowtham allows Mitchell Marsh to collect his third four of the innings. 7 runs from the over. DC 73/2 in 7 overs, chasing 196.
Delhi Capitals were 13/2 in 3 overs. They have smacked 53 off the next three overs. Dushmantha Chameera continues. And Mitchell Marsh picks his slow delivery to send it through point for four before bringing out a ferocious pull shot for a big six. Rishabh Pant then picked the gap through covers for his fifth four. 17 runs from the final over of Powerplay. DC 66/2 in 6 overs, chasing 196. Time-out.
Now Mitchell Marsh joins the fun. These past few minutes have been excellent for Delhi Capitals. Jason Holder introduced. And Marsh welcomes him with a six over the bowler’s head. And then flicks the third delivery over square leg region for six more. Rishabh Pant drives one between backward point and short third man for four more. 17 runs from it. DC 49/2 in 5 overs, chasing 196.
Rishabh Pant has teared into Krunal Pandya. He first swept one powerfully to square leg region and then wanted to hit the following delivery down the ground but got an outside edge for four. And then he muscled the fifth over the bowler’s head for a maximum before a poor fielding at mid-off resulted in four more to finish the over. 19 runs from it. DC 32/2 in 4 overs, chasing 196.
Rahul opted to bat first and made on change to his playing XI with fast bowler Avesh Khan benched and replaced by allrounder Krishnappa Gowtham. On the other hand, DC have gone unchanged. LSG are on a two-match winnings streak and will be targeting a hat-trick of wins. DC come into this match on the back of an impressive win against Kolkata Knight Riders.
Delhi Capitals will be hoping they finally are able to jot together two wins in a row as they take on high-flying Lucknow Super Giants. DC have been plagued by inconsistency so far but in a positive news, the franchise now has all their top stars available. On the other hand, LSG are currently third in the standings and a win today would move them a place up to the second spot, further improving their chances of making it to the playoffs. This is the second meeting between these two teams this season with LSG winning the first time they clashed last month.
