For the important IPL 2023 match between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals, the Arun Jaitley Stadium was painted yellow by MS Dhoni supporters, and the crowd went wild with cries of “Dhoni, Dhoni” after the CSK captain won the toss on May 20.
CSK are well-positioned to make the playoffs. Second-placed CSK under Dhoni will play their final league match against the Delhi Capitals later today (Saturday) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. If they win, they will go to the playoffs.
They have a win to move to the next round and have 15 points after 13 games. However, if the Yellow Army fails to secure a victory, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians will have a good chance to surpass the Super Kings.

“We will bat first. I think that is what we are here for. We are trying to win each and every game since the beginning. We are playing with the same XI. We don’t make many changes, we are happy with the balanced side we have. Day game and heat are one of the factors and it slows down as the match progresses, hence we are batting first. I think we are trying to do that, we tell the youngsters as well. We have good games and bad games as well. We shouldn’t have the hangover and take it to the next game, so hence we need to get up fresh and ready for the next one,” MS Dhoni said after winning the toss at Arun Jaitley Stadium.
