The Delhi Capitals (DC) suffered poor results in the IPL 2022 match which took place at DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai, Thursday. Against the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), a franchise team based in Delhi it was only able to record 149/3. This result is certainly not the result that any franchise team wants.
In this match, the team under captain Rishabh Pant got the third lowest first inning total or fewer goals in the IPL this season. Whereas throughout IPL history, DC has never gotten a total below 15. Previously, the lowest result was ever obtained by the Rajasthan Royal team when they only managed to get 139 against the Kolkata Knight Riders in Jaipur in 2019.
The Lucknow Super Giants' superb performance during the match resulted in disciplined bowling that allowed them to beat the Delhi Capitals. An 80 of 52 balls scored by Quinton de Kock's opener helped LSG beat Delhi and limit the Capitals to 149. LSG's performances were too much for Delhi and left the team in trouble. It was the most disappointing result for the Capitals who actually have two big players on the team, David Warner and Anrich Nortje.
