Jason Holder is an excellent all-rounder and he will most probably shine with both bat and bowl today against the Delhi Capitals.

 Both Lucknow and Delhi have a very balanced and strong squad.

Delhi Capitals will get more stronger with the addition of David Warner who is available for this match.

The batting lineup of the Delhi Capitals is very strong and they also have some excellent bowlers in their lineup.

On the other hand, Lucknow Super Giants also have all bases covered.

Both batting and bowling departments are in good form which is helping them to win matches in their maiden IPL season.

The team combination of Lucknow Super Giants is much better than Delhi Capitals.

Hence, our prediction for match 15 is that Lucknow Super Giants will beat Delhi Capitals.
