Lucknow Super Giants won the toss and ask Luknow Super Gaints to bat . DC lost Jake Fraser-McGurk for a duck as he tried to fo for a big hit in the very first over. Abishek Porel and Shai Hope quickly shifted the momentum with some incredible strokeplay. The pair took on the pacers aggressively, giving DC a strong start in the Powerplay. Porel reached a well-deserved half-century as Hope, after a powerful cameo, departed on 38. After a brief quiet period against the spinners, Porel’s attempt to accelerate led to his dismissal.


Rishabh Pant and Tristan Stubbs then rebuilt the innings with a crucial partnership of 47 runs. Pant’s innings came to an end as he attempted to increase the scoring rate on a well-made 33. Stubbs though played a clutch innings and helped DC dominate the slog overs and also scored a quickfire 50 off just 22 deliveries. Fifties from Tristan Stubbs and Abishek Porel helped DC brave a middle-overs slowdown and reach 208/4

Ishant Sharma would rain hell on the LSG ranks to scalp both openers within the first three overs and also dismiss Deepak Hooda for a duck in the succeeding over of his spell as LSG were pushed to an abysmal 44-4. Counter-attacking fifties from Nicholas Pooran and Arshad Khan provided a semblance of a comeback but LSG were left with a little too much to chase down in the end
