LSG vs DC 7 April: Lucknow Super Giants beat Delhi Capitals by six wickets

LSG Vs DC April 7: At the end of 20 overs, KL Rahul led Lucknow Super Giants successfully chased down the target of 150 runs set by Rishabh Pant led Delhi Capitals.

LSG won the toss and decided to field
For the first time at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. Stay tuned here for all the highlights of the match.

Quinton de Kock showed scintillating form of 80 off 52 balls as Lucknow Super Giants beat Delhi Capitals by six wickets for their third successive win in their maiden IPL season here on Thursday.

Delhi Capitals lost their way after a swashbuckling innings from Prithvi Shaw (61 off 31) and ended at 149 for 3 after Lucknow decided to field first.

With the resources Lucknow have, the 150 should have been a comfortable chase and the KL Rahul-led side ensured it reached home on a difficult surface with two balls to spare.

De Kock was at his devastating best as he shared a 73-run stand with his opening partner Rahul (24 off 25).

The South African wicketkeeper-batsman was particularly hard on compatriot Enrique Nortje who was playing his first game since November. Playing his first IPL game in India, de Kock hit three fours and a six in an over of 19 runs to the fit-again fast bowler.

In what turned out to be a forgettable night for Nortje, the South African pacer was later forced to withdraw from the attack after bowling two waist no balls.

After the fall of Rahul, his team needed 76 runs in the last 10 overs. De Kock, who hit nine fours and two sixes, took the team to the pinnacle of victory with his second 50-plus score of the tournament.

With the pitch not being the easiest to bat on, Lucknow struggled to finish the game, even with Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya not getting a big hit.

Lucknow eventually managed to complete the job with young Ayush Badoni hitting a decisive four and a six off Shardul Thakur in the final over.

Jason Holder was on the receiving end in the next over when Shaw hit him for a six at mid-wicket. Then came the turn of fast bowler Avesh Khan who hit three consecutive fours in the fourth over.

It looked like Shaw was batting on a different surface while the others were struggling around him. He used his sharp hands to cut the ball and was equally quick to drive anything over cover.

It was on skipper Rishabh Pant (39 not out on 36) to take the team to a respectable total and he did so in the company of Sarfaraz Khan (36 not out on 28) who was playing his first match for the franchise.

Pant mainly hit straight boundaries and Sarfaraz showed skill without taking too much risk, which got him tons of runs in domestic cricket.

Brief Scores:

Delhi Capitals: 149 for 3 in 20 overs (Prithvi Shaw 61, Rishabh Pant 39 not out, Sarfaraz Khan 36 not out, Ravi Bishnoi 2/22).

Lucknow Super Giants: 155 for 4 in 19.4 overs (Quinton de Kock 80; Kuldeep Yadav 2/31).
