A must-win game for both teams, Delhi Capitals (DC) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the 64th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Even though DC lost their last match against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), they still have a chance to qualify for the playoffs if they defeat the LSG side with a good margin and get a better net run rate.

On the other hand, it's a must-win game for the KL Rahul-led LSG as they are in the 7th position and have the lowest run rate as compared to others. LSG have lost their last two matches and now have to win their remaining matches to be in the race for playoffs.

Let's discuss the key battles in the DC vs LSG match:

1. Rishabh Pant vs Ravi Bishnoi:

Pant

DC skipper Rishabh Pant is one of the most dangerous batters in the world who loves to attack the bowlers. With his weird shots, he likes to entertain the viewers a lot as well as scare the bowlers. However, while playing against LSG's leggie Ravi Bishnoi, Rishabh doesn't have a good record. He has scored 54 runs in 47 balls while Bishnoi has taken his wicket twice. Bishnoi's performance in this IPL has been great and he will definitely look to dismiss the DC skipper. 

2. Marcus Stoinis vs Axar Patel:

Stoinis

Marcus Stoinis is one of the most significant players in the LSG team and also their backbone. The same goes for Axar Patel as well who was the skipper of DC for one match. Both players will look to have a good game and strengthen their records against each other. Stoinis is known for hitting long sixes and since this game is very important he'll look to smash Axar. 

3. Nicholas Pooran vs Khaleel Ahmed:

Pooran

Nicholas Pooran is another player who has always played well for the team. The way he attacks every bowler and makes it look easy is an amazing skill which everybody doesn't have. Meanwhile, Khaleel Ahmed is a terrific bowler for the DC team. He has given some important breakthroughs to the team which were necessary.
