On Friday, former Indian Captain MS Dhoni played his 200th match for the Chennai Super Kings(CSK) against the Punjab Kings(PBKS) at the Wankhede Stadium. CSK won the one-sider by 6 wickets, it was the icing on the cake for the CSK skipper as it made his day more special.

CSK has been amongst the most successful franchises of the Indian Premier League. Dhoni has been one of the key persons in building the team into one of the most successful franchises. Thala Dhoni is the heartbeat of CSK, no one can imagine the team without him.

After winning his 200th match, here is what captain cool had to say at the post-match presentation on completion of his 200th game.

“Makes me feel very old (smiles, on being asked how he feels to have played 200 games). Been a very long journey. Different conditions, countries, a very interesting journey.”

Dhoni speaks on Chahar heroics:

Deepak Chahar bowled one of his dream spells against PBKS. He took 4 wickets and conceded just 13 runs off his four overs. This is such a nice gift to Dhoni on his 200th IPL game for Chennai Super Kings. This is what Dhoni had to say on Deepak Chahar’s performance-

“Chahar is somebody who has developed as a death overs bowler too. If I’m looking to attack and there is movement. I try to bowl him out because he gets more out of the pitch. As a bowling unit we have more resources. I was looking to attack, so bowled his four overs. And it helps in becoming fit because to bowl 4 successive overs you need to be fit.”
