Match 15 of the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) will witness a clash between new side Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Delhi Capitals (DC). Thursday, the game will be played at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy Stadium in Navi Mumbai. DC will be eager to get back to winning ways while we present the match preview and predict the winner.

Current form
LSG is coming off a winning performance over former champion SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), having played three matches and winning a couple of them. On the other hand, DC is coming off a loss to another new side Gujarat Titans (GT), having played two games while winning and losing apiece. Thus, momentum is slightly in LSG's favour.


Teams strengths-weaknesses and players to watch
As for LSG, it is packed with bowlers. However, courtesy of some delicate batters, it is equally dangerous in the department. KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Evin Lewis, Marcus Stoinis, Jason Holder, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Quinton de Kock, Ravi Bishnoi and Avesh Khan are the ones who could make an impact.

On the other hand, DC is balanced, while it is marginally heavy in its bowling too. But, stars across departments make it a terrific side. The likes of Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Rishabh Pant, Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi will nail it.
