Despite losing the Chennai match, Mahendra Singh Dhoni set a personal record again


Bangla Hunt Desk: Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings and David Warner's Sunrisers Hyderabad faced in an important match of IPL yesterday. Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Chennai Super Kings by seven runs in this match. In the end, the world's best finisher Mahendra Singh Dhoni could not win the match against Chennai even after surviving at the crease.

However, Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni set a personal record again after losing the Chennai match. Mahendra Singh Dhoni holds the record for most matches played in the history of the IPL. With yesterday's match, Dhoni has played 194 matches in the history of IPL. Right after Dhoni is Dhoni's teammate Suresh Raina in Chennai Super Kings. Suresh Raina has played 193 IPL matches, one match less than Dhoni. And this time there is no Suresh Raina in the IPL, meaning there is no possibility for Dhoni to overtake Raina.

Right after Dhoni is Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma who is playing in this year's IPL. In other words, if Chennai Super Kings can make it to the play-offs in the IPL this time, then no one can beat Dhoni. But if for some reason Chennai Super Kings do not make it to the playoffs and Mumbai Indians make it to the playoffs, then Rohit Sharma has a chance to top Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
