Dhoni most capped IPL player

4 October, 2020

DUBAI AFP: India’s Mahendra Singh Dhoni has become the most-capped IPL player even as his Chennai Super Kings team -- currently bottom of the table -- faltered in yet another run chase.

The 39-year-old has now played 194 Indian Premier League matches and overtook on Friday his former India and CSK teammate Suresh Raina who has 193 games.

The former India skipper Dhoni and Raina both announced their retirement from international cricket last month. But unlike Dhoni, Raina at the last minute pulled out of this IPL edition which because of the coronavirus pandemic is being held in the United Arab Emirates.

Dhoni has now played 164 of his 194 games for the CSK franchise.
