CSK defeated DC by a margin of 77 runs and sealed their place in the second position of the IPL 2023 points table to qualify for the playoffs. CSK batting first posted 223/3 in 20 overs with the help of a humongous 141-run opening partnership between Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway. In the last five overs of the innings, Dube and Jadeja's cameo accelerated the team's total to another 200-plus score.
