IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Highlights: Delhi Capitals got off to a bad start to their chase of a 196-run target, losing their in-form openers David Warner and Prithvi Shaw early. However, Mitchell Marsh and Rishabh Pant turned the tables on LSG with a 60-run stand for the third wicket that came in just 25 balls. While Marsh fell to Krishnappa Gowtham in a rather strange fashion, Pant fell six runs away from his half century. Rovman Powell then kept them in the chase but his wicket in the 17th over turned out to be a decisive blow. While Axar Patel then scored an unbeaten 42 off 24 balls, it was just too much for the DC tail to chase down. Earlier, KL Rahul scored yet another half century and powered LSG to a score of 195/3.

    DC vs LSG: LSG beat DC by 6 runs

    Six to end the match from Axar Patel and that brings DC's margin of defeat down to six runs. LSG have got away with this one in some ways considering the amount of misfields. DC weren't far better either so the heat in Mumbai could have something to do with i9t. 

  • May 01, 2022 07:34 PM IST

    DC vs LSG Live Score: 13 needed off two

    Axar refuses a single off the fourth ball and so it is two sixes and a Super Over or nothing. Unless there are no extras off course.

    IPL 2022 Live: SIX! 

    Oh Kuldeep Yadav starts the last over with a biggie! Where has that come from. Stoinis is the bowler, short ball angling away from off and Kuldeep steps accross the line and pulls emphatically!

  • May 01, 2022 07:28 PM IST

    Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Live: FOUR!

    Slow ball from Chameera and Kuldeep pulls him to the boundary for four. Axar seems to be struggling with his hip and so it is all getting a bit too difficult for DC. 

  • May 01, 2022 07:22 PM IST

    IPL Score: Into the last two overs, DC 160/7

    They need 36 runs to win. Dushmantha Chameera is bowling the penultimate over and Kuldeep Yadav is on strike. Kuldeep has done well to rotate strike and give as many balls as possible to Axar thus far. 

  • May 01, 2022 07:17 PM IST

    DC vs LSG IPL 2022 Live Updates: Axar survives!

    Holder bowling the 18th, the batters get two off the first after which Axar goes for the pull. Top edges it and the ball goes up, Holder himself goes for the catch but can't quite get there.

    IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Live Score: OUT! Mohsin has four!

    Slog sweep from Shardul Thakur and he finds the deep midwicket fielder. Mohsin has four wickets and that is quite a decisive blow.

    IPL Live Score: OUT! Powell falls

    Mohsin gets his third wicket and that is another big one. Powell pulls the short delivery straight into the hands of deep midwicket.

  • May 01, 2022 07:06 PM IST

    DC vs LSG: DC 146/5 in 16 overs 

    They need 50 to win in four overs. It is perfectly gettable if Axar and Powell stick around for about two more overs. 

  • May 01, 2022 07:04 PM IST

    DC vs LSG Live Score: FOUR! 

    Holder bowls a poor ball and Powell punishes him for it. Second delivery of the 16th over and it is full and wide. Powell sends it to the boundary with ease.

    IPL 2022 Live: Final timeout of the match

    That Pant wicket has certainly set DC back. They now have Powell in the middle with Axar Patel at the other end. Axar can hit a mean one but now, the problem is if there can be sustained hitting from these two players. DC 124/5 in 14 overs. 

  • May 01, 2022 06:48 PM IST

    Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Live: OUT! Pant cleaned up

    IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Live Score: PANT DROPPED!

    Pant tries to hit the wrong ‘un over the extra-cover fielder but can’t quite get that height. It is captain Rahul himself over there, he reaches up but cannot hold on to it. There have been quite a few errors in the field today from LSG, as was the case with DC, but this one in particular might them a lot. 

  • May 01, 2022 06:31 PM IST

    IPL Live Score: FOUR! Pant continues

    Pant slashes a length delivery and it goes just past the diving deep backward point fielder. Interesting situation this. Pant is someone who can build an innings and he is looking very good today but he has Rovman Powell at the other end, who will have to play deep today to ensure that DC stand a chance in this chase. 

  • May 01, 2022 06:27 PM IST

    DC vs LSG: OUT! 

    Googly from Bishnoi that turns sharply and the ball takes middle and off. That is the end of a pretty forgettable day for Yadav. He did take a very good catch to dismiss Rahul but there were also some bad misfields and drop catches from him. 

    Lalit Yadav b Bishnoi 3 (4), DC 86/4 in 8.5 overs

  • May 01, 2022 06:26 PM IST

    DC vs LSG Live Score: FOUR!

    Pant continues his carnage against the spinners. Slashes a cover drive off Bishnoi and he moves to 37 off 17. 

  • May 01, 2022 06:19 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Live: OUT! Marsh falls

    That is a strange moment. The wicketkeeper celebrates the catch but the umpire waits a while before raising his finger. Even Gowtham indicates that he doesn't know if it is out or not as his team mates surround him. Marsh is shaking his head as he walks off, wonder if he is unhappy with that decision and if he was, why in the world did he not review that?Anyhow, that is the end of a 60-run partnership that has come in just 25 balls.  

    Marsh c De Kock b Gowtham, 37 (20); DC 73/3 off 7.1 overs

  • May 01, 2022 06:17 PM IST

    Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Live: DC 73/2 after 7 overs

    Just one boundary off the seventh over so Bishnoi manages to keep these batters relatively quiet. DC are going at a rate of over 10.5 an over and their required rate is around 9.5. 

  • May 01, 2022 06:09 PM IST

    IPL Score: Marsh-Pant put up over 50 in just 16 balls!

    These two are putting on a show now. Marsh first pulls Chameera to the top-tier of the longest boundary in the ground and then Pant drives a full delivery to the boundary to bring up the 50-run stand. 

  • May 01, 2022 06:05 PM IST

    DC vs LSG IPL 2022 Live Updates: 17 runs off the fifth!

    Well the tables have turned a bit. If those two wickets hurt DC, these last two overs have given them the impetus with Marsh and Pant going big guns. 

  • May 01, 2022 05:59 PM IST

    IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Live Score: Pant hits the ground running!

    Pant comes in and goes 4, 4, 6 and four off Krunal Pandya. He races to 18 off five balls. The second four is a lucky one with Pant somehow not playin on. 

  • May 01, 2022 05:53 PM IST

    DC vs LSG IPL 2022 Live Updates: OUT! Warner falls!

    Both of DC's in-form openers are out. Length ball outside off and Warner mistimes the pull and Badoni dives forward to take a low catch. Warner stands his ground and the umpire sends it upstairs. The third umpire deems that Badoni had got enough underneath the ball and so Warner has to go. 

    Warner c Badoni b Mohsin 3 (4), DC 13/2 in 3 overs

  • May 01, 2022 05:46 PM IST

    IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Live Score: FOUR!

  • May 01, 2022 05:43 PM IST

    IPL Live Score: OUT! Shaw falls

    He had hit an exquisite shot straight down the ground off the previous ball which was pitched up. This one was short of a length and Shaw miscues a pull. It goes straight down the throat of midwicket.

  • May 01, 2022 05:41 PM IST

    DC vs LSG: One run off the first over

    Mohsin Khan bowled the first over for LSG with Prithvi Shaw taking strike and David Warner at the other end. Shaw got off the mark with a single off the fifth ball of the over and he will be back on strike for the second.

    DC vs LSG Live Score: Deepak Hooda speaks

    "I'm enjoying batting at 3, I play up the order in domestic cricket too. I'm used to the heat, having played in these conditions all my life. This is a good pitch, but the slower balls are gripping. We didn't speak about any target, but the intent for every ball was the same. This is a very good total on this pitch, but we'll need to keep taking wickets at regular intervals."

  • May 01, 2022 05:21 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Live: LSG 195/3 in 20 overs

    An inch perfect yorker to end the innings from Mustafizur. That one six from Stoinis makes this a 15-run over and yet, one could say this remains a good recovery from DC. This is a big total to chase though, and DC will need their in-form openers to take them as far as possible in this. 

  • May 01, 2022 05:20 PM IST

    Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Live: SIX!

    Stoinis sends Mustafizur back over his head into the stands past long on. That was the fourt ball of the over and that takes LSG to 193/3. The 200 is still on, as it turns out. 

  • May 01, 2022 05:19 PM IST

    IPL Score: Into the last over

    LSG are 180/3. Mustafizur has the ball in his hands and Krunal Pandya is on strike. This has been a good recovery from DC, even though there is a lot on the board. 

  • May 01, 2022 05:14 PM IST

    DC vs LSG IPL 2022 Live Updates: OUT! Rahul falls

    And that is a brilliant catch by Lalit Yadav. He times the catch brilliantly as Rahul is forced to try and clear the long boundary by Thakur. That is such an important wicket, it was possibly the first chance that Rahul offered DC in this match. 

    KL Rahul c Lalit b Thakur 77 (51); LSG 176/3 off 18.4 overs

  • May 01, 2022 05:10 PM IST

    IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Live Score: SIX!

    Rahul throws his bat at a full delivery outside off. Rahul opens the face of the bat at the last moment to get that ball behind and he ends up hitting it so well that it has gone for another six. LSG 176/2, Rahul is on 77 off 50. 

  • May 01, 2022 05:06 PM IST

    IPL Live Score: 8 off the 18th over

    The last three have been fairly good overs for DC, they have done well to keep these two down. Stoinis especially has scored just 9 runs in 13 balls while Rahul is on 70 off 48. 

  • May 01, 2022 05:05 PM IST

    DC vs LSG: FOUR! What a shot from Rahul

    Yorker from Mustafizur, Rahul reverse scoops it just to the left of short third man. Almost a switch hit. What a shot that is, he moves to 70 off 48. 

  • May 01, 2022 05:02 PM IST

    DC vs LSG Live Score: Stoinis dropped!

    Lalit Yadav does not drop those. In fact, not too many fielders would have dropped that as he came running in and reached there in time to let the ball come into his body. But it pops right out of his hands. Lalit had earlier dropped a catch off his own bowling. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:58 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Live: SIX! Rahul goes aerial!

    He had just taken a new glove, KL Rahul, and with it, he picks up this ball that is pitched outside off and sends it flying over the boundary. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:52 PM IST

    Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Live: Five overs to go, LSG 145/2 

    Marcus Stoinis gets off the mark with a four off the very first ball that he faced. LSG can really accelarate here with Stoinis in the middle and Krunal Pandya and Jason Holder still in the shed. KL Rahul will also certainly be looking to shift gears. For now the two players have to deal with Kuldeep Yadav. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:46 PM IST

    IPL Score: OUT! There is the breakthrough

    Hooda hits a full delivery straight back into the hands of the bowler Shardul Thakur's hands. The partnership ends at 95 off 61 balls.

  • May 01, 2022 04:42 PM IST

    DC vs LSG IPL 2022 Live Updates: Half century for Deepak Hooda!

    A slightly tight single to get there, unlike Rahul, who just ran an easy one to get there. Umpire sends the run out decision upstairs but the replay shows that Hooda had even crossed the stumps by the time bails had come off. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:36 PM IST

    IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Live Score: Half century for KL Rahul!

    Yet another half century for Rahul, can he convert this into het another century? He has hardly given the DC bowlers anything today, no half chances, no dropped catches. Hooda, meanwhile, is two runs away from his own half century. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:29 PM IST

    IPL Live Score: DC 117/1 after 12 overs

    The run rate is 9.75. Both players going big guns and it has been an LSG show so far. At this rate LSG are projected to reach 194 and even a slight increase in the run rate takes them beyond 200. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:26 PM IST

    DC vs LSG: FOUR! Hooda getting closer to fifty

    Half volley on middle stump from Sakariya and Hooda smacks it inside out through covers. Runs are coming at both ends in this partnership and LSG can target a real big score now. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:24 PM IST

    DC vs LSG Live Score: SIX!

    Hooda takes LSG into three digits with a maximum off Axar. Gets out of his crease quickly, whips it over long-on. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:19 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Live: SIX!

    What a way to bring the 50-run partnership. Rahul smashes Kuldeep wit the turn over long-on and the stand is now worth 51 runs in 33 balls. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:17 PM IST

    Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Live: LSG 80/1 after 9 overs

    LSG are quietly maintaining a run rate of nearly 9 an over. The stand between Hooda and Rahul is now into the 40s as well.

    IPL Score: End of powerplay, LSG 57/1

    An eventful first six overs in which Pant used five bowlers. The heat at the Wankhede may have played a role in this decision. 

  • May 01, 2022 04:01 PM IST

    DC vs LSG IPL 2022 Live Updates: FOUR!

    Lovely shot from Hooda, who had got a lucky four just like De Kock off the very first ball he faced in the innings off Thakur. This one is off Mustafizur as Hooda just guides a length ball going away from him through point. 

  • May 01, 2022 03:54 PM IST

    IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Live Score: OUT! Shardul strikes!

    De Kock skies it, bakll comes off the bottom of the bat. The ball went high up under the sky and Lalit does well to keep his eye on it in the sun and and take the catch.

  • May 01, 2022 03:52 PM IST

    IPL Live Score: 16 runs and a dropped catch off the 4th over

    Two fours come in the over and a difficult one-handed chance for Lalit. A dissapointing one for DC after Axar Patel gave just three runs in the third. 

  • May 01, 2022 03:49 PM IST

    DC vs LSG: SIX!

    KL Rahul reaches for it, with his right hand coming off the bat after he completes the shot and he clears the boundary.

    DC vs LSG Live Score: Axar brought in 

    Axar has dismissed Rahul thrice in the past and so this is aimed at the LSG captain. However, Rahul just takes a single off the very first ball so no flare-ups for now. 

  • May 01, 2022 03:44 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Live: FOUR! 

    De Kock ends the second over with a six and a four. A little wide from Sakariya and De Kock goes for the aerial cover drive. 16 runs off the second over, LSG 22/0. 

  • May 01, 2022 03:40 PM IST

    Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants Live: SIX!

    That's the first maximum of the day and it has come off the bat of Quinton de Kock. Waited for it and smacked Chetan Sakariya over deep-midwicket. 

  • May 01, 2022 03:35 PM IST

    IPL Score: LSG 6/0 after the first over

    A single each for the batters after that lucky four from De Kock. There was a small appeal from Mustafizur after the ball took De Kock's pads and went behind, where Pant somewhat messed up his take. 

  • May 01, 2022 03:31 PM IST

    DC vs LSG IPL 2022 Live Updates: FOUR! Lucky inside edge for De Kock

    Mustafiqur angles one into the left hander and De Kock offers the straight bat. The ball goes to that gap between bat and pad and takes an inside edge before darting past the stumps for four. The Fizz was very close to getting a wicket off the very first ball.

    IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Live Score: The players are out

    Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul are in the middle for LSG, Mustafizur Rahman has the ball in his hands for Delhi Capitals.

    IPL Live Score: 50-50 win rate at the Wankhede

    Teams batting first and chasing have won five matches each at the Wankhede. With this being a day match as well, there will be no dew coming into play so conditions may not change too much through the course of this game. 

  • May 01, 2022 03:17 PM IST

    DC vs LSG: Krunal Pandya talks

    Pandya has taken two and three wickets in the last two games he played for LSG. “I read the wicket well comparatively (in the previous game). Felt if I pulled my lengths back, I have always varied my pace which has been my strength, so I backed that and was aware of how I can use the wicket to my maximum ability. I was playing a lot of shorter format cricket in the last 2-3 years. Batsmen are going hard whenever you bowl in this format, you just want to contain and want to squeeze out the overs. In that process, I was just trying to dart in the ball and was just varying the pace. With my mindset, if I develop some skills where I can impart some spin or if I am able to get the bounce, I'll be more effective and more dangerous as a bowler.”

  • May 01, 2022 03:13 PM IST

    DC vs LSG Live Score: Rishabh Pant

    We don't mind because we were in two minds. The wicket is looking on the slower side but this is a new wicket and no team has played on this wicket. We are always trying to improve the way we play. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, but you got to take positives and move forward. We are playing with the same team. He (Nortje) is coming off nicely after the practice, he didn't play enough cricket before coming into the tournament but he's getting there.

  • May 01, 2022 03:11 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Live: KL Rahul

    “We are going to bat first. Looks a good wicket, put some runs on the board and defend it. The last couple of games, we have defended quite well, so that gives us a bit a of confidence as a team. Try and go out there, put a par total on the board and ask our bowlers to defend it again. Mistakes do happen no matter how long you play this game. We just had an honest chat and everybody realises that we could have been a little bit more smarter. It happens under pressure, just spoke about it and guys are honest enough to accept their mistake and they've learnt from it. Hopefully we can come out here and assess the conditions really well and play smart cricket. Avesh Khan misses out and K Gowtham comes in. Avesh is just coming from a small injury, didn't want to play him back-to-back. The pitch looks quite dry, they have a couple of left-handers in their team. A good match-up, we thought KG would be a good option for us.”

    “A good pitch, 160-170 seems a good score,” says Kevin Pietersen.

    IPL 2022 DC vs LSG Live Score: Rahul left fuming

    LSG may have won their last match by 20 runs against PBKS but Rahul admitted that he was left fuming by the shot selection of some of his batters. "I was fuming after the first innings because it was stupid cricket with the bat, the experienced guys in the team. It does happen but we did talk about it at the timeout that it's a tricky pitch but 160 is something we can put on the board. But a couple of bad shots and the runout didn't help. I was unhappy with that middle phase but this game has been completely about the bowlers," he said.

    DC were restricted to 149/3 and Quinton de Kock's 80 off 52 balls led LSG to a six-wicket win. A lot has changed since then, most prominently the fact that DC's opening partnership of Prithvi Shaw and David Warner has well and truly taken off.

    IPL 2022 Live: Kuldeep's purple patch

    Kuldeep is second in the Purple Cap table with 17 wickets in eight innings. The fact that no other DC player has bagged a player of the match award apart from Kuldeep this season shows how dependent they have come to be on him.

    Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants: LSG's bowling strengths

    LSG have been helped by the consistency with which they have bowled and fielded this season. Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan Dushmantha Chameera, Jason Holder and Ravi Bishnoi have all stepped up at some point throughout the season, making LSG one of the most difficult to score against.

    DC have won and lost alternatively in their last six matches. Their dominant win in the first match against Mumbai Indians made it look like DC will enjoy another run to the final but that hasn't been the case since. They currently sit sixth, having won and lost four matches each.

    DC vs LSG Live Score: KL Rahul

    Jos Buttler is head and shoulders ahead of the rest of the batters in the IPL this season while Rahul, one could say, has been the best of the rest. While he has scored two centuries this season, it is to be noted that he has also got two single digit scores, including a duck in the last five innings. The fact remains, though that he has scored 374 runs at a strike rate of 143.84 and average of 53.43 and dismissing him will take DC a long way in their quest for victory.
