LKN vs DEL, Indian T20 League 2022 Match 15, MPL Prediction and Top Picks

Match: Lucknow vs Delhi (LKN vs DEL, Match #15)

Date: April 7, 2022 – 7:30 PM IST

Venue: Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai

IPL 2022 debutants Lucknow will take on Delhi in match 15 of Indian T20 League 2022. The game will be played in Mumbai’s DY Patil Stadium.

Lucknow got off to a disappointing start in their maiden Indian T20 League season. They lost their season opener to Gujarat by five wickets after being unable to defend an inadequate 158. However, they bounced back to win both of their next two games against Chennai and Hyderabad respectively.

In their most recent clash against Hyderabad, half-centuries by KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda propelled Lucknow to a first innings total of 169. Later, Avesh Khan picked up four wickets and Jason Holder chipped in with another three to help the side successfully defend the target. With two wins in three games, Lucknow are currently fifth in the points table.

Delhi, on the other hand, have one win in two games. They won their season opener against Mumbai by four wickets, but succumbed to a 14-run loss to Gujarat. Chasing 172 to win, Delhi put up a shoddy performance with the bat, with four of their batsmen scoring in single digits. Captain Rishabh Pant’s 43 was the only significant knock.

Ahead of Indian T20 league match 15, let’s look at the head to head total of both teams, the pitch report, weather update, MPL top picks and more.

LKN vs DEL: Top Picks for Indian T20 League 2022, Match 15 (Five players to watch out for)

Top Fantasy Picks for LKN vs DEL

KL Rahul – Wicketkeeper batsman, Lucknow

Lucknow captain scored a golden duck in the first game, but made a strong comeback in the next two games. The opener scored 40 against Chennai and 68 against Hyderabad and will be looking for another good knock against Delhi in the next game. KL has been consistently performing well in the Indian T20 league in the last four seasons.

Avesh Khan – Bowler, Lucknow

Avesh Khan was the leading wicket-taker for Delhi in Indian T20 League 2021, and overall the second-highest wicket-taker after Harshal Patel. He has seven wickets in three games this season, including a match-winning spell of 4 for 24 in the most recent game against Hyderabad.

Rishabh Pant – Wicketkeeper batsman, Delhi

The Delhi captain is among the most fearless batsmen in the world across all three formats. Pant loves to go for the big shots and can change the course of the game with his strike rate. The southpaw scored a knock of 43 against Gujarat in the last game and will be looking for a bigger score in the next game.

Deepak Hooda – All-rounder, Lucknow

All-rounder Deepak Hooda has already scored two fifties in three games this season and is among the most picked players for this fantasy game. The Baroda cricketer who recently made his India debut has a strike rate of nearly 140 in his T20 career.

Mustafizur Rahman – Bowler, Delhi

Playing his first match of the season against Gujarat, Mustafizur Rahman picked three wickets for 23 runs and will be looking to carry the same form into the next game. The fast bowler has become a T20 globetrotter over the years and can be a game-changing bowler.

Note: The players recommended here need not be a part of the Playing 11 on game day. Users are advised to do their own research also and follow official sources and create their teams.
