Match 15 of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will see two neighbors taking on each other. Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Delhi Capitals (DC) will be up against each other, and KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant will have a point to prove with respect to their leadership skills. While Delhi are coming on the back of a loss to Gujarat Titans, Lucknow Super Giants defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous game. Although Delhi has played a match less than Lucknow, they have shown what they are capable of against Mumbai Indians. However, in their second game, they faltered a bit and could not chase 171. Rishabh Pant will hope that return of David Warner changes things for his team. Meanwhile, Lucknow will just want to replicate their performances from the last two games.
Both captains are back among run charts for their respective teams. While Pant smashed a 29-ball 43 against Gujarat, KL Rahul hit a half-century against Hyderabad. So, these two become obvious picks for the fantasy team. Apart from KL, Deepak Hooda has consistently performed for Lucknow and should definitely be in one’s 11. Ayush Badoni can also be included considering his pinch-hitting abilities at the fag end of the innings. From the Delhi Capitals camp, David Warner and Lalit Yadav will be two names that can be added to the fantasy 11. From the bowling and all-rounders departments of both teams Jason Holder, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, and Mustafizur Rahman can be valuable picks.
Lucknow: KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Andrew Tye, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan
Delhi: Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Sarfaraz Khan, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Anrich Notje, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman
