LSG vs DC Pitch Report: Lucknow Super Giants are all set to host the struggling Delhi Capitals in the 26th match of the Indian Premier League 2024 at Ekana Cricket Stadium on Friday. 

KL Rahul-led Lucknow started the IPL 2024 season with a big defeat against Rajasthan Royals but made a stellar comeback with three back-to-back wins. LSG registered a dominant 33-run win over Gujarat Titans while defending 163 runs in their last game at home and jumped to third place in the points table.

On the other hand, Delhi Capitals' poor start to the season continued as they suffered another big defeat against Mumbai Indians in their last game. Chasing a big target of 235, Delhi were restricted to 205 despite impressive hitting from in-form Tristan Stubbs and fit-again Prithvi Shaw.

Delhi find themselves at the bottom of the points table with just one win in five games and have yet to register a win in the past three encounters against Lucknow Super Giants.
