Lucknow batted first in the match and collected 167 runs in the exchange of 7 wickets. Delhi won the match by 6 wickets after 168 runs. Jake Fraser-McGurk, who played his first match in the IPL, collected 55 runs off 35 balls to reach his half century. Kuldeep Yadav, who took the most wickets for the team, was adjudged the man of the match.

The Lucknow batsmen were caught by the lethal bowling of Kuldeep Jadav and Khalil Ahmed and eventually returned to the pavilion. The Delhi bowler created a threat for Lucknow from the beginning. Lucknow had already lost 7 wickets for 97 runs while Arshad Shaw and Ayush Badoni added 73 runs in partnership. As a result, Lucknow gave Delhi a target of 167 runs. In the reply, both McGurk and Prithvi played short shorts despite the loss of David Warner’s wicket from Delhi’s start. After Prithvi got out, Rushabh Pant and McGurk brought the team to a strong position by making it rain. In the end, Cy Hope and Tristana Stubbs’ partnership of 26 runs won the team.
