Grammar aside, I bow to your thoughts, Joshwin. Bless you.

Is "having lost a few wickets" a participial phrase acting as an adverb as it answers the "why question"?

Yes, that is one way of looking at it. It states why, or in what way, Delhi were struggling.

Alternatively, it could be regarded as a participial phrase acting as an adjective describing the state that Delhi were in. It would then be equivalent to "Delhi, having lost a few wickets, were struggling".

I think either analysis is justifiable.

Audiendus
Should there be 'after' before ' having lost a few wickets', in the above sentence?

Najib is on his guard. Unusually, polling is on a weekday. This will discourage many workers in the cities from traveling far off to the countryside where they are registered to vote/for voting. High voter turnout is generally associated with discontent; when the BN lost the popular vote to the opposition in 2013, the turnout hit a record high of 84.8 while the average turnout for the Malaysian general elections since 1964 is 74.8%. IMO
