IPL 2020: MS Dhoni Becomes First Player To Play 200 IPL Matches

On Monday, CSK skipper MS Dhoni, became the first player to play 200 Indian Premier League (IPL) matches when he took field against Rajasthan Royals at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Before Dhoni, Suresh Raina was the most capped IPL player but after he pulled out of the 13th edition, this record was there for the taking for the CSK skipper.

When asked about the achievement at the toss, Dhoni said: “You spoke about it and that’s how I got to know. It feels good but at the same time it’s just a number. I feel fortunate to play for such a long time without many injuries.”

Raina took to Twitter to congratulate Dhoni on the special achievement and wrote: “The first-ever player to play his 200th match in IPL, Best of luck for today @msdhoni Bhai .. Wishing you loads of success. You always make us proud.”

Dhoni has also played the most number of matches as a skipper, leading the side in 184 matches, and is the second-most successful leader in IPL history, winning three titles with Chennai Super Kings.
