The Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to begin with a match between Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants on April 1st, 2023. Both teams face challenges as they enter this match without key players.
Delhi Capitals Without Rishabh Pant
Delhi Capitals will have to brace up for life without Rishabh Pant. The wicketkeeper-batter continues his recovery from a severe car crash last December. Pant’s absence will be a significant blow to the team as he is known for his explosive batting and leadership skills.
Lucknow Super Giants’ Struggling Skipper
Lucknow Super Giants is an equally beleaguered outfit if not more, with skipper KL Rahul going through the toughest phase of his career. He has been on a downward spiral for quite some time now. Rahul’s form will be crucial for the team’s success in the tournament.
The match between Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants will take place on April 1st, 2023 at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow1. The match will begin at 7:30 PM IST on Saturday2.
Delhi Capitals will take the field under their new captain David Warner after Rishabh Pant remained unavailable for the side; the wicketkeeper-batter continues his recovery from a severe car crash last December3. Spinner Axar Patel was named Warner’s deputy for the season3.
Lucknow Super Giants enjoyed an impressive run in their maiden appearance at the tournament in 2022, as they reached the playoffs and defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the eliminator, before eventually conceding a defeat to Rajasthan Royals in the qualifier match3. This season, eyes will be on KL Rahul as he eyes a return to form after an extended rough patch across all formats of the game3.
