- Match: Lucknow vs Delhi, Indian T20 League
- Date: 7th April 2022
- Time: 07:30 PM IST
- Venue: Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai
This 7th April, Lucknow and Delhi will collide for the very first time in the Indian T20 League. The two capitals have a lot of potential. However, KL Rahul’s Lucknow has mesmerised the cricket fans with their performance with bat and bowl. Youngsters like Ayush Badoni and Avesh Khan have proved their worth for their team. However, Delhi is still struggling to find thor footing this season. The thin batting lineup in the middle order has haunted Delhi. Eventually, it looks like this time around the capital of India will try and do everything in their hands to stop their opponents.
Lucknow is currently sitting comfortable at number five position at the points table. However, with the newfound talent in Ayush Badoni, Avesh Khan and many others, the team would want to move up in the table. Skipper KL Rahul showed some class in the last match. However, it was the spectacular bowling of former Delhi player, Avesh Khan who won the match for Lucknow. The team still lacks the depth in their batting lineup. Eventually, Lucknow would want to step up their game to move up the points table.
Delhi is having a tough season this year. Currently, Delhi is seventh on the points table. While Rishabh Pant smashed a well-needed 43 runs off 29 balls, the team couldn’t hide their batting lineup. Now that David Warner and Anrich Nortje are back in the Indian T20 League, it looks like the tides could change for Delhi. However, the team still needs to step up in their batting and bowling lineup.

Top Picks for Lucknow vs Delhi MyTeam11 Match:
The right-handed Ayush Badoni turned multiple heads when he scored a half-century (54 runs) in his debut match for the Indian T20 League. The young player from Delhi is making a name for himself at the expense of the experienced bowlers. For Lucknow, Badoni works as a hard hitter who could elevate the run rate for the team at any given moment.
All-rounder Deepak Hooda is yet another battesman from Lucknow who is looking to make it big this season. In his first match for Lucknow, Hooda smacked 55 runs off 41 balls. From time and time again, Deepak Hooda has proven his worth for Lucknow.
Avesh Khan is a right-arm fast bowler from Lucknow. In the last season, he played for Delhi where he was the second-highest wicket-taker of the series. However, he is still entertaining his fans for Lucknow where he performed extraordinarily in his last match against Hyderabad.
Wicket-keeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has been a key asset for Delhi. The 24-years-old captain played a quick knock of 43 runs off 29 balls. His ability to run between wickets and keeping the run-rate is something which helps his team in the long run. Surely, his performance in the last match would’ve given him a lot of confidence. Hence, this makes him one of the most anticipated players in the upcoming matches.
