With Chennai Super Kings (CSK) facing SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 fixture at the Dubai International Stadium, MS Dhoni has become the most capped player in IPL history on Friday. Raina, who withdrew from this year’s IPL, took to Twitter to congratulate the former India skipper. He wrote, “Congratulations Mahi bhai (@msdhoni) at becoming the most capped IPL player. Happiest that my record is being broken by you. All the best for the game today and am sure @ChennaiIPL will win this season’s @IPL.”

He has overtaken Raina’s tally of 193 IPL matches. The duo have featured together in 164 matches for CSK.
During his IPL career, Dhoni has scored 4,476 runs with a 84 (not out) as his highest score.
He has also registered a strike rate of 137.89. The CSK skipper has scored 23 fifties, but hasn’t notched a hundred yet.
His boundary count is also impressive, with 299 fours and 212 sixes.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Rohit Sharma has played 192 IPL matches and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli has played 180 IPL games.
Having won the IPL thrice, CSK began their 2020 campaign on a winning note, defeating MI by five wickets. They followed it up by a 16-run defeat to Rajasthan Royals (RR), and a 44-run loss to Delhi Capitals (DC).
CSK are currently at the bottom of the IPL table.
