There are not even ten days left till the start of the IPL. Indian cricket fans are counting the days waiting for breathlessness. Once the IPL is over, the T20 will be mastered again. Dhoni will be seen in the role of Kohli’s mentor.
The IPL was postponed due to Corona in May this year. In the first episode, however, Dhoni was not in good form. In seven matches, a total of 36 runs came from his bat. Or what? Chennai Super Kings are running like horses of Ashwamedh.
The Yellow Army will start the second phase with a high voltage match against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians from the second position in the points list. Let’s see which record Dhoni is going to make.
Captain Cool Dhoni, Captain 200
In the first edition of the IPL, Mahendra Singh Dhoni became the captain of the Chennai Super Kings. Then the fairy tale. Dhoni, who has become very popular in Tamil Nadu, has led the Chennai team in 195 IPL matches.
The former India captain will lead Chennai Super Kings in 200 matches in the 48th match of this year’s IPL against Rajasthan. Under his leadership, CSK has won 115 out of 195 matches.
25 Half Centuries on the way
And only two fifties. Only then will Dhoni set a record of 25 fifties in the IPL. He has scored 479 runs at a strike rate of 138.64 in the best T20 league in the world.
Right now, Dhoni has 23 fifties in his book. However, there are not a hundred. In fact, he has to play the role of finisher to bat a lot behind. Dhoni’s highest run in IPL is 84.
Dhoni to reach 5000 Runs
Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been seen playing in the jerseys of both the teams in the IPL. 4095 runs came from his bat for Chennai Super Kings. Thala played for Rising Pune Supergiants in two editions. In 2016, he scored 564 runs in the IPL for the Pune team.
At present, Dhoni has 4669 runs at an average of 40.25 in the IPL. If he scores 339 runs in this edition,he will get a place in the list of elite batsmen of the best T20 league in the world. The list includes Virat Kohli (606), Suresh Raina (5491), Rohit Sharma (5480), Mr. 360 Degrees AB de Villiers (5056).
