LSG vs DC Dream11: Top fantasy picks, probable XIs and pitch report

Lucknow Super Giants enjoy a 3-0 head-to-head lead against the Delhi Capitals.

Two teams that are at opposite ends of the points table, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Delhi Capitals (DC), are set to lock horns in Match 26 of IPL 2024. The match will take place at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on Friday, April 12.

LSG are currently riding a wave of confidence, having won their last three matches. They boasts a well-balanced team, where there is perhaps no overdependence on a single individual.

While they will miss the presence of teeraway pacer Mayank Yadav, LSG have more than enough bowling options. In the last game, another youngster in Yash Thakur shone as he took the maiden five-wicket haul of IPL 2024.

On the other hand, DC are struggling at the bottom of the points table. Their bowling attack, which has traditionally been their strength, has been inconsistent. Their batting, reliant on Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw, hasn’t quite clicked yet. This match will be a crucial one for DC to turn their fortunes around. They were hammered by a buoyant Mumbai Indians team in their last tie.

Historically, LSG has dominated the head-to-head record, winning all three encounters between the two sides. However, with DC needing a win to revive their campaign, this match promises to be an exciting contest.

LSG vs DC Match details

Match: Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) vs Delhi Capitals (DC), Match 26, IPL 2024

Ekana Stadium pitch report

While the surfaces at the venue were heavily criticized last season, the Ekana Stadium has provided much more balanced surfaces in IPL 2024 thus far.

In the two IPL matches played here so far, both have been won by the team batting first, with scores exceeding 160. This suggests a change in character for the pitch, as the match progresses on.

Having said this, expect bowlers being in the game throughout the 40 overs, with batters needing to grind hard to get their runs flowing.
