Delhi Capitals (DC) will be ending their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 campaign with a game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Saturday, May 20 at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi. The David Warner-led side hasn’t had a memorable campaign in the ongoing season as they’re ranked in the second last position on the IPL points table having ten points to their name with five wins from 13 games.
DC will be ending their campaign on a colorful note as the players will be seen donning a special rainbow jersey in the last home game of the season. Notably, the Delhi-based franchise wore the jersey in IPL 2022 as well midway through their season.

Delhi registered a win in their last fixture against Punjab Kings (PBKS) by a decent margin of 15 runs at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala. They will be eager to continue their winning momentum against CSK and end their campaign on a high by hammering the four-time champions.
DC started their campaign on a forgettable note, losing their first five matches of the season. However, they made a remarkable comeback by winning four out of their next five games. But their consecutive losses against CSK and PBKS in their 11th and 12th match respectively knocked them out of the tournament.

The game is extremely important for CSK as they desperately need to win against DC to qualify for the playoffs and have a chance to finish in the top two in the league stage. If the MS Dhoni-led side ends up losing their last game, their fate will be in the hands of RCB and MI as their qualification will depend on the loss of any of the two teams in their remaining fixtures.
