IPL 2023: 3 Talking Points Of DC vs CSK

DC vs CSK 2023

Delhi Capitals (DC) suffered a huge defeat at the hands of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Match 67 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 and ended their campaign with a defeat.

CSK on the other hand, became the 2nd team to qualify and they will be playing Gujarat Titans (GT) in Qualifier 1 on 23rd May 2023 at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai.

MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings were at their best in this game against DC and they posted 223 runs on the board. Delhi couldn’t get their bearings right in the run chase and fell short by a huge margin.

In this article, we take a look at the top 3 talking points of the DC vs CSK game in IPL 2023 which took place in Eden Gardens:

1. David Warner’s lone fight went in vain

At a time when all the DC batters perished away for paltry scores, skipper David Warner was the knight in shining armour for the home side. That has essentially been the entire story of Delhi in IPL 2023.

They have been overly dependent on David Warner and his heroics with the bat. In this DC vs CSK game, Warner scored 86 runs in 58 balls and was an absolute champion by all means!

One has to feel for the Australian swashbuckling player!

2. Ruturaj Gaikwad was at his usual best

One of Chennai’s finest batters, Ruturaj Gaikwad bagged the player of the match award for his stellar knock of 79 runs in 50 balls. Gaikwad smashed 3 fours and 7 sixes and had an incredible strike-rate of 158.00.

Along with Kiwi opener Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad put up a massive 141 run partnership for CSK. That essentially was the game won by Chennai Super Kings!

3. Deepak Chahar stars with the ball

After being a little rusty post his comeback from injury in IPL 2023, Deepak Chahar is now proving to be an asset for Chennai Super Kings. In this DC vs CSK game, Chahar bagged 3 wickets and had an excellent economy of 5.50.

In his 4 overs, Deepak Chahar conceded only 22 runs and was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors. He bagged the important wickets of Phil Salt, Rilee Rossouw and Axar Patel and sealed the deal for Chennai Super Kings.

Going into the playoffs, Deepak Chahar will be playing a big role in Chennai Super Kings’ bid for their 5th IPL title.
