Delhi Capitals welcome Chennai Super Kings in match number 67 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 season on Saturday. DC are already ousted, having managed five wins and eight losses from 13 games and will want to sign out with a victory. CSK can seal the playoffs with a win; if they lose, they will depend on other results. So a crucial game is on the cards at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
DC skipper David Warner has scored 967 runs at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in the IPL. He is the top scorer at this venue, having surpassed Virender Sehwag (933 runs) recently. Warner is 33 runs shy of the 1,000-run mark. He has one ton and eight fifties at this venue.
Warner can become the second-highest scorer for DC
Warner has amassed 2297 runs for the franchise in the IPL at 31.90. He has 20 fifties for DC, besides two tons. Warner needs a solid 79 runs to become the second-highest scorer, surpassing Shreyas Iyer, who scored 2375 runs for the side. Overall, Warner has managed 6311 runs in the IPL at 41.24, slamming 60 fifties and four tons.
500 runs for Warner for the seventh time in an IPL season
Warner has scored 430 runs in IPL 2023. He needs 70 runs to register a mark of 500. If Warner accomplishes the feat, it will be the seventh time he will score 500-plus runs in an IPL season.
