The airports and steel VS energy and coal. Who will win? No, we don’t joke. The Delhi Capitals is owned by GMR Group (airports) and the JSW Group (steel). The Lucknow Super Giants is led by RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group (energy, coal). 

So, let’s analyze who will get 2 points in the Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Match 2022.

DC now sits in the 6th place with 6 matches, 3 won, 3 lost:

  • The team won over MI, KKR, PBKS;
  • Lost to GT, LSG, RCB.

LSG got to the 4th place, had played 7 matches, 4 won and 3 lost:

  • They won over CSK, SRH, DC, MI;
  • Lost to GT, RR, RCB.

The 1st match between them was on the 7th of April, at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy venue. LSG beat DC by 6 wickets. LSG was leading and looked very confident. 

After the event, DC’s skipper Rishabh Pant said that the dew factor impacted them greatly, and they were short of 10-15 runs. The LSG captain KL Rahul said that every team likes chasing and praised the team’s batters.

What should we expect from the second 2022 DC vs LSG match? Let’s see.

Match Details & 2022 Pitch Report

The Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Match #45 is scheduled on the 1st of May (03:30 PM local time) at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The dew factor will be reduced as it will be the daytime match. Although Mumbai usually is very humid, it also may impact the play. 

The weather forecast says that the 1st of May will be sunny and hot, 31°C. The humidity will be 71%, and it’s a high parameter. The wind will have 19Km/h speed and WSW direction.

The Wankhede Stadium, founded in 1974, has hosted 87 IPL matches since 2008. The highest score was 235, and the lowest was 67. Though, mostly we can expect a 150+ score because of these reasons:

  • the pitch is made of red clay, which is tough and gives extra bounce;
  • short boundaries;
  • the team batting first scores slightly more runs (in 1st innings, on average);
  • toss factor: the team winning the toss would like to select batting first (in the daytime).

DC won 5 times at the Wankhede Stadium and participated in 15 IPL events there. Mostly, the venue is linked with a painful experience.

LSG were there only twice, and both matches were lost. We see that DC knows the venue slightly better. For LSG, the field may have an upsetting memory. Nevertheless, Lucknow won over Delhi in the previous match and has performed very confidently.
