Delhi Capitals registered their 2nd victory of IPL 2024 as they gunned down the Lucknow Super Giants at the Ekana Stadium by acing an impressive chase of 168 with 6 wickets to spare. IPL debutant Jake Fraser-McGurk's 55 was the highlight of their performance, while Tristan Stubbs finished the match with a massive six.

Ayush Badoni's half-century (55*) ensured that the Lucknow Super Giants finish with a potentially match-winning total of 167-7 in their stipulated 20 overs in the IPL 2024 clash against the Delhi Capitals on Friday. The unbroken 8th wicket partnership of 73 with Arshad Khan proved to be the game-changer as the home side stormed to 167 from being 94-7 at one stage.

Toss Update:

Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul has won the toss and has elected to bat first against the Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2024 clash at the Ekana International Stadium. With the Super Giants remaining unbeaten in 3 attempts against the Capitals, they will hope to continue the same on Friday in their home game.
