The highly anticipated “Rivalry Week,” which runs from May 6 to May 13 2023, is living up to its billing, according to Star Sports, the official television broadcaster of the IPL 2023. With each new game, The Rivalry Week keeps up with the hype. It continues to provide some of the most heated and thrilling matchups featuring the best rivals in IPL history to demonstrate the intense competition of this league.
As the tournament’s final stretch approaches, fans are also getting to see the rivalry between North and South teams as some of the biggest clubs from each region compete against one another for two vital points. One of the most closely contested games in the tournament’s 15-year history, all clubs are still in contention for a playoff position. On May 6, one of the “Greatest Rivalries” of the IPL saw CSK and MI square off, kicking off the rivalry week.
In the following match of Rivalry Week, Delhi Capitals travel to the South to face CSK in the latter’s home arena, Chepauk. Following the thrilling victory over RCB at home, the David Warner-led team must be filled with confidence.
Two victories in a row, according to former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh, may have boosted this team’s confidence, but Warner’s inability to produce runs is a worry for DC, who are currently last in the standings.
Harbhajan stated on Star Sports’ Cricket Live that while the Delhi Capitals’ confidence has grown after winning two straight games, captain David Warner’s recent run drought is worrying. Although some young athletes have admitted fault, Delhi’s issue still stems from the beginning. They remain where they were previously.

Irfan Pathan declared, “CSK is a ruthless team and it deals with opposition teams in its own way.
Former India cricketer S Badrinath, who has previously played for CSK, thinks MS Dhoni has done a good job of managing CSK’s inexperienced fast bowling attack.
“It’s concerning because CSK’s pace bowling assault appears to be rather inexperienced. The bowlers will need to step up, but MS Dhoni has handled his resources well, according to Badrinath.
S Sreesanth, a former cricketer for India, echoed Badrinath’s assertion and continued, “Their legendary skipper knows how to bring the best out of the players.”
“MS Dhoni’s biggest strength is that he brings the best out of the players,” Sreesanth stated. If they don’t already know, he will make sure they are aware of their advantages. after receiving the bac
