Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni made history by playing in the 37th match of the IPL at the Sheikh Abu Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Monday night.
Dhoni holds the record for most 200 matches played in an IPL career against Rajasthan Royals. No other player has that record in the IPL.
However, Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma is breathing down Dhoni’s neck. Rohit played his 197th match against Punjab on Sunday night. Suresh Raina is in third place on this list. He has played 193 IPL matches. However, he will be far behind in the race to play the highest match as he rushed to India before the start of this IPL
Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli is in the fifth position in the list of highest matches played in the IPL. He has played 186 matches so far.
So far, Dhoni has scored 4568 runs in 199 matches in the IPL. There are 306 boundaries and 215 sixes. Dhoni’s highest run in the tournament is 84 unbeaten.
