Who won yesterday’s IPL match 2022, LSG vs DC – Match 15?
In yesterday’s IPL match at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) defeated the Delhi Capitals (DC) by six wickets. Despite Prithvi Shaw’s 61 off 34 balls, Delhi struggled to 149 for 3 in their first innings. Quinton de Kock smashed 80 off 52 balls in the chase. After a brief stutter following his removal, Lucknow ultimately made it home in the final over. As DC’s bowlers struggled with the dew, LSG got off to a fast start in their pursuit of 150. KL Rahul (24 off 25) perished against Kuldeep Yadav, miscuing a lofted shot, as the openers scored 73 in under 10 overs. De Kock, as well as skipper Rahul, were the aggressors in the first half.
De Kock smashed fellow South African Anrich Nortje, who was back from injury after Lucknow cruised to 26 in four overs. As 19 came off the over, De Kock blasted a short ball over deep backward square leg for a maximum after smashing three consecutive fours. Nortje had a bad day and was removed from the attack after 2.2 overs after bowling two full deliveries over the waist (no-balls).
De Kock brought up his fifty off 36 balls by lifting Kuldeep over cover for a boundary, seeming to be in no difficulty at all. On the other hand, when attempting to take on Lalit Yadav, Evin Lewis was caught for 5 off 13 yards.
LSG restrict DC to 149 for 3 despite Prithvi Shaw’s blazing 61
Prithvi Shaw, the DC opener, hit 61 runs in 34 balls. LSG spinners Krishnappa Gowtham (1/23) and Ravi Bishnoi (2/22) smothered Delhi’s batsmen, limiting them to 149 for three. After losing the toss and being sent to bat, Delhi raced to 52 for no loss at the end of the powerplay. Shaw was the dominant partner, scoring 47 off 29 balls, while Warner only contributed 3 from 9 overs in the opening six. Shaw smashed Jason Holder for a four and a six in the next over after slicing Gowtham for two fours in the previous over.
The DC opener smashed Avesh Khan for three consecutive boundaries when he was introduced. Shaw scored 50 runs in 30 balls by slicing Krunal through point for a couple of runs. In the ninth over, off-spinner Gowtham was reintroduced, and Shaw clattered him for a maximum over long-on and a four through the cover. When Shaw edged an attempted cut, the Lucknow bowler got his revenge, catching the DC opener behind. Warner’s maiden innings of IPL 2022 ended with him top-edging Bishnoi to short third man for 4 off 12. Rovman Powell (3) was also retired by the Lucknow leggie with a googly after the West Indian batter missed his swipe. With a score of 74 for 3, Lucknow had clawed their way back into the game.
