LKN vs DC: Lucknow Super Giants (LKN) and Delhi Capitals (DC) are all set to clash in the third match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Saturday, April 1st, at the Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium.
KL Rahul will once again lead Lucknow Super Giants, who had a great first season in the tournament and made it to the playoffs. This year, the team has added three top-class Caribbean players to their roster – Nicholas Pooran, Romario Shepherd, and Kyle Mayers, making them a formidable force to reckon with.
However, they have been dealt a blow just before the start of the tournament as Mohsin Khan, their key pacer from last season, will be unavailable for the first few matches. Jaydev Unadkat is likely to step in to fill the void. They will be looking to kick off their campaign on a high note.
With Rishabh Pant still recovering from injuries he sustained in a car accident last year, Delhi Capitals will have a new captain in David Warner for the upcoming season. However, they will be missing the services of Anrich Nortje in the opening games of the tournament and will have to rely on local bowlers like Chetan Sakariya, and Khaleel Ahmed.
A great start to their tournament campaign is what both teams are hoping for, and they will be looking to start off with a victory. All in all, an exciting T20I game beckons at Ekana International Cricket Stadium.
