Indian T20 League 2024

DEL vs LUC, 64th Match

 

Preview

It's almost another knock-out match set to occur between Delhi(DEL) and Lucknow(LUC) in match 64 of the IND T20 League 2024. This thrilling contest between two northern sides is scheduled to occur at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi on Tuesday, 14 May 2024. The Hosts Delhi is placed at the sixth spot with six wins out of 13 league matches, on the other hand, the Visitors Lucknow is currently holding the seventh spot in the league standings with six wins out of 12 matches. 

Despite being in the middle of the table, DEL and LUC are still very much in contention for the playoffs. Tied with 12 points each, this crucial encounter will see both sides vying for the coveted fourth playoff spot. Expect a tense and exciting battle as DEL and LUC look to solidify their position in the tournament.

Unfortunately, Delhi played their last league match without the services of their skipper Rishabh Pant after he was suspended by the Apex Indian Cricket Authority for the slow-over run rate and handed a one-match ban. The left-handed batter also received a fine of Rs 30 Lakh against Rajasthan. In his absence, Axar Patel took charge of the side against Bengaluru which they lost by 40 runs against Faf du Plessis-led BLR.

The Northern sides Delhi and Lucknow, contrastingly, scratched around to victory in 1 out of their recent three league matches and lost the other two matches by a heavy margin. The margin of victory against Mumbai and Gujarat was not too big, but Delhi found a way to get over the line. In their last outing, DEL was mayhem by Bengaluru who posted 187 on the board and restricted Delhi to 140 runs. On the other hand, KL Rahul-led Lucknow played their worst match of the season so far when they were brutally assaulted by Hyderabad(HYD) who won the match by 10 wickets and chased down the target in 9.4.

DEL and LUC have faced each other in 4 matches in IND T20 League history. Out of these 4 matches, Delhi has won 1 whereas Lucknow has come out victorious on 3 occasions. It is fair to say that Lucknow has better stats against their neighbour in this league.

Pitch and Weather Report

Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium provides maximum assistance to the batting side as they gradually settle down and focus on the game. Shorter boundaries and a speedy outfield make it simple for the batters to score runs on this venue. Unfortunately, the pace bowlers have very little scope because of the sluggish surface. Yet, the wicket offers the spinners significant aid, and they have a successful track record on this ground.

The sky will be clear on the match day in Delhi. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be between 41°C - and 28°C. The surface mostly assists the batters in the 2nd inning of the game. We might expect a big score on this track.
