DC vs LSG Clash Defines Fate in IPL 2024 Playoffs Race

IPL 2024: DC vs LSG Showdown Shapes Playoff Picture

DC and LSG will go head to head for the IPL 2024 playoffs race. Due to a mistake near the end, both DC and LSG are at 12 points going into their match in Delhi on Tuesday. However, the guests have played one more game. 

Even so, two wins will only get LSG to 16 points. From there, they will need to hope that both CSK and SRH lose their last few games. Also, DC has lost two of its last three games. This puts it in a dangerous position and makes it impossible for it to qualify. 

Not only do they need to win big against LSG, but they also need SRH to lose by a large margin. Hence only then, they can stay ahead, on NRR in case of a 14-point tie. DC will almost certainly be out of the race if they win by a small margin.

Player Form and Team Strategies: DC vs LSG

DC lost to RCB on Sunday night, when their two best scorers missed two chances to score. The bowlers helped them make an amazing comeback in the second half of the innings. When Axar Patel filled in as captain, he led from the front. 

However, DC will be glad to see their regular captain Rishabh Pant back in the XI. After serving a one-match ban for the team’s third over-rate offense of the season, at home against RR.

In T20 cricket, Kuldeep Yadav has a big lead over Nicholas Pooran. Pooran was out for a golden duck when they last played in the IPL in 2024. This is the fifth time in all T20s that the wristspinner has bowled him out. 

If Pooran doesn’t get out, his strike rate drops to just over 91 against Kuldeep in this format. Thus,this will be an exciting middle-overs match to watch.

The other player would also be getting a lot of attention, “KL Rahul.” He was seen having a heated conversation with the team owner after the big loss in Hyderabad. Many people have questioned what he was trying to do in the PowerPlay. 

Pant’s strike rate is going down (~115) against spinners in IPL 2024. Furthermore, he has a lot of trouble with legspin in particular. Ravi Bishnoi got rid of the DC leader in the first game, making the second one exciting. 

In addition, it only takes 112.5 hits to get out of him, and Bishnoi has already done it twice. He’s also been out three times by Krunal Pandya in the IPL. Nevertheless, he has a crazy 179.5 strike rate against the left-arm spinner.

IPL Playoffs Stakes and Scenarios: DC vs LSG

Furthermore , Quinton de Kock’s lack of interest put pressure on the middle-order. This hit LSG’s NRR so hard that it is now the lowest (-0.769) of the three teams with 12 points.

In the IPL 2024, LSG has the second-lowest run rate during the powerplays (8.15). Unfortunately, they have also done badly in the dying stages (10.35), which is the lowest of the ten teams. 

By the way, DC isn’t much better either; their 10.65 death overs are just a bit better than LSG’s. 

In PowerPlays, DC has lost the most wickets (27), and their top three players have been used the most (9). This is partly because so many people in their camp have been hurt.

But one good thing that came out of that was the rise of Jake Fraser-McGurk. Fraser-McGurk has the only strike rate above 200 (237.41). 

This is out of the 293 hitters who have faced at least 100 balls in IPL history. And it all began in Lucknow, where the Australian came in with one wicket down and hit a fifty off of 31 balls on his debut. 

BCCI looks for New Cricket Coach, so close to T20.

This was the start of DC’s comeback in the middle of the season.
