Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants have not been at their best in TATA IPL 2023 so far. LSG has tasted victory once, but DC has been disappointing since the beginning. Their first event was versus LSG, where they fell short by 50 runs. It was Delhi’s decision to bowl first at Ekana Sports City. Meaning they had to chase 194 in 120 balls.
Prithvi Shaw struggled with fast bowlers, and Mitchell Marsh departed when Mark Wood struck the right chord.
Ajit Agarkar, the assistant coach of DC, has noted their forms. He has rebutted individual criticism saying that DC as a batting unit needs to improve a lot. The statement came to light when Shaw once again failed to deliver a promising top-order partnership with David Warner. Shaw has received criticisms for his form, but the management believes that a focus on the entire batting unit is needed.
However, batting first did not help when facing Gujarat Titans. A target of 163 was chased down by GT in 18.1 balls, courtesy of Sai Sudharsan for scoring 62 off 48 balls. He remained unbeaten, surviving the bowling spell of Anrich Nortje.

LSG has something to think about as well. A victory over DC is praise-worthy, but a defeat against CSK has sought the management to consider a few decisions. LSG still has less to worry about since the team is in the top four with 2 points and an NRR of +0.950.
The loss against CSK came when LSG fell short by 12 runs while chasing the target of 218. Kyle Mayers delivered a performance no one wants to forget. LSG was at 75 in 5 overs, giving a thrill to CSK. Tables turned when Mayers was sent back to the team’s rest area by Moen Ali. A half-Century, definitely, but that went down the drain in the same manner in which KL Rahul could not capitalize on his batting. A set batter played the role of rotating the strike, put down by the same bowler for 20 off 18 balls.
