IPL 2021: MS Dhoni achieves a milestone

MS Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), has become the first cricketer to play 200 matches for his franchise in IPL and Champions League T20 events as he stands versus Punjab Kings (PBKS) tonight.

Dhoni is the part of the CSK since 2008. Playing from the inaugural season, he barely has missed the match that might have been followed by an injury or other blowouts. Otherwise, he is a regular part of the league since Day 1 as his leadership commences for the Daddies Army.

Standing in the eighth match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021), the record-breaking feat for India’s successful skipper came underway. He has featured in as many as 175 IPL matches for the Yellow Team and donned CSK’s jersey 24 times in the Champions League T20 events.
