Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants (Match 64) – Highlights 


Royal Challengers Bangalore took another step towards making the almost impossible possible. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals eased Bengaluru’s equation by defeating Lucknow Super giants in their last match. However, despite winning, Rishabh Pant’s team is on the verge of elimination. Besides, Rajasthan Royals benefited from Delhi’s win and Sanju Samson’s team has confirmed the play-off with 2 matches in hand.


The hosts beat Lucknow by 19 runs at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Tuesday (May 14). Chasing Delhi’s 209 runs, Lokesh Rahul’s Lucknow scored 189 runs for 9 wickets at the end of the stipulated over.


With this win, they have moved up from six to five in the points table, but as the net run rate is still negative, there is no chance of finishing in the top four, regardless of the results of the other teams’ matches.


However, Delhi’s win has made the playoff equation much easier for Bengaluru. They will reach the top four only if they beat Chennai Super Kings by a big margin in their last match. This equation is easy in front of Bengaluru who survived the tournament by winning 5 games in a row.


On the other hand, Chennai’s equation is simpler. Even if the last match is somehow won or abandoned, the ticket to the last four will be available. In front of Sunrisers Hyderabad, the calculation is also easy. They will go up if they win either of the last two matches. Even without winning a match there will be a chance. But in that case, the net run rate can come as.


With this loss, Lucknow’s exit from the league stage was somehow confirmed. Because, despite winning their last match against Mumbai Indians by a huge margin on Friday, Lokesh Rahul’s Lucknow, who are sitting seven, will not be able to make it to the top four.


Lucknow got off to a good start after winning the toss and fielding. Arshad Khan got Australia’s devastating opener Jake Fraser-McGurk off to a good start in the first over. But with the batting of Abhishek Porel and Shai Hope, Delhi immediately managed the initial shock. The duo’s 92-run stand laid the foundation for a big collection for the hosts.


Hope scored 38 runs off 27 balls. And 58 runs from 33 balls came from Porel’s bat. In the end, Tristan Stubbs made a fifty. The South African batsman scored 57 runs off 25 balls with 4 sixes and 3 fours. Finally, Lucknow stopped at 208 runs.


Chasing the target, Lucknow fell early. The team lost 4 wickets in the power play, 3 of which were taken by Ishant Sharma. Despite losing consecutive wickets at one end, Nicholas Pooran (61 off 27) was keeping hope alive by storming the other end. However, he also departed with a team score of 101 runs.


In the end, Arshad Khan showed resistance by raising a storm. He gave the team hope of victory by scoring 58 runs in 33 balls with 3 fours and 5 sixes. But in the end, it didn’t happen anymore. Lucknow had to leave the field with a loss.
