Watch cricket video highlights between Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants. Indian Premier League 2024 sixty fourth match, played at Delhi.

Delhi Capitals ended their group stage campaign in Delhi with a 19-run victory against Lucknow Super Giants, securing their spot in the top four—at least mathematically. With one game remaining against the Mumbai Indians, LSG is also not out yet, but if any side wants to finish in the top four, other outcomes must go their way. LSG led the match until the last over after going down 44 for 4 in a chase of 209, courtesy of 61 from Nicholas Pooran and an undefeated 58 from Arshad Khan at No. 8.

But Rasikh Salam held off 20 off the last six to give DC its seventh IPL 2024 triumph. DC needed to score 200 or more on a high-scoring surface in order to have a chance of winning two points. Abishek Porel and Tristan Stubbs shined with fifty-hits each after being invited to bat, lifting DC to 208 for four. Ishant Sharma destroyed LSG with the ball early on, taking three wickets, and despite Pooran and Arshad’s best efforts, LSG could not stop losing wickets at the other end and ultimately failed.

Jake Fraser-McGurk, DC’s aggressive opener, was caught at long-on after swinging his bat a little against the left-arm fast Arshad in the opening over. However, Shai Hope and Porel didn’t allow that wicket to slow down the hosts. In the second over of Arshad, Porel hit three fours and a six after hitting a six against Mohsin Khan. Hope struck 4, 4, and 6 against Yudhvir Singh in the next over. After four overs, DC had quickly reached fifty. Naveen-ul-Haq was also spared by the pair as he let up 17 runs in his opening over. With Porel still undefeated at 43, DC finished the powerplay at 73 for 1.

Because LSG’s spinners applied pressure in the middle overs, Porel reached his fifty in just 21 balls, but he managed to score just eight runs in the following 12 balls. After the powerplay, Rahul brought in Ravi Bishnoi right away and forced Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya to restrain themselves on the other end. In the ninth over, Bishnoi ended the 92-run second wicket partnership between Porel and Hope. Hope hit a full-length wide delivery straight to covers, and Rahul made an amazing low catch to remove him for a mere 38 runs on 27 balls. Porel tried to go big but finally fell for Naveen’s slow ball after a few calm overs. During his stay, Bishnoi performed admirably, hitting 26 for 1. DC, on the other hand, only managed 42 runs between overs 7 and 12.

DC were 136 for 3 at the conclusion of 15 overs, and the 200-mark appeared a long way off. But Stubbs entered. He started off well, hitting two fours and a six off Arshad and two sixes off Naveen to reach his fifty in 22 balls after scoring seven off his first nine deliveries. With his unbroken 57 off 25 and Rishabh Pant’s fast-bowling 33, DC was reduced to 208 for 4, with 72 runs coming off the last five overs. The Impact Player, Ishant, made an immediate impression with the ball. He dismissed KL Rahul, Deepak Hooda, and Quinton de Kock, three of LSG’s top players, in his opening three overs. Marcus Stoinis’s removal by Axar Patel, which puzzled Pant, meant that LSG was quickly down to 44 for 4.

Pooran’s powerful hitting kept LSG in the game after early setbacks. Shortly after the left-arm spinner removed Stoinis off his first ball, he hammered Axar for 4, 6, 4, 6. After that over, he proceeded to smash two more sixes and four more fours, including a reverse sweep off Kuldeep Yadav’s bowling over extra cover for a six. LSG had a half-time score of 97 for 5. But Pooran angled away, fell for the short slower ball from Mukesh Kumar, and sliced it to Axar at extra cover for a 27-ball 61. It appeared as though LSG had lost control of the pursuit at 101 for 6.

When Arshad emerged with a vengeance, Delhi was treated to even more entertainment. With a left-handed stroke at 175.5, he hammered five sixes and three fours to keep LSG in the game all the way to the conclusion. His undefeated knock reduced the total to 29 off the previous 12. However, Rasikh and Mukesh’s outstanding final two overs kept him from scoring any runs, and LSG lost by 19.
