Lucknow Super Giants were handed an embarrassing 10-wicket by the Sunrisers Hyderabad as they’ll be looking to stay alive in the playoffs race with a win over the Delhi Capitals at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Tuesday.

The playoffs chances for the Capitals were dented by the sprightly Royal Challengers Bengaluru where they were deprived of a 16-point finish in the table.

With two matches still left for LSG, their hopes are not yet diminished. The KL Rahul-led side would look to forget the past losses and turn their fortunes against DC. As both teams look to win their remaining matches, they’ll still test their fate on the results of other teams.

Venue Details

The teams batting first this year have won their respective matches while no team has won batting second. Therefore, the teams playing here are likely to prefer batting first and post a huge total on the board to put pressure on the opponent team.

Match Prediction

With both teams coming from a loss in their last encounters, a win will be desperately fancied. Although the LSG lead the head-to-head against DC, they lost their previous encounter against them. While DC won their last encounter at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, they might be in for another win against a struggling LSG.

As per the Google Win Predictor, DC holds a 53% chance of winning their clash against LSG.
