Talking about the match, LSG skipper KL Rahul won the toss and opted to field. DC opener Prithvi Shaw looked in great touch. He smashed 61 runs off 34 balls. His innings consisted of 9 fours and 2 sixes.

In reply, LSG had a steady start. Openers KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock added 73 runs for the first wicket. Quinton de Kock played a brilliant innings of 80 runs off 52 balls. His knock included 9 fours and 2 sixes.
In the final over, Lucknow needed just 5 runs. The task seemed easy. But a wicket and a dot ball in the first two deliveries, kept Delhi’s hopes alive. Ice-cool Ayush Badoni then smashed a 4 and 6 to take Lucknow home.
LSG will next face Rajasthan Royals on 10th April.
