MS Dhoni makes another IPL record with 200th match as Chennai Super Kings skipper.

The 39-year-old, who has led CSK to three IPL titles, is at the eighth spot in the list of leading run-getters in IPL, with 4,632 runs.

Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni again made a record in his Indian Premier League career. He added another feather to his cap as he played his 200th game for Chennai Super Kings as skipper. Dhoni became the first player to captain a franchise 200 times in T20 cricket.

Dhoni retired from international cricket last year but has continued to play franchise cricket. He batted against RR and made 18 runs off 17 balls.

Dhoni achieved the feat during the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday.

Dhoni, who has played 207 matches in the IPL, has featured for CSK in the tournament and Champions League T20. Last week, Dhoni played his 200th game for CSK when he took the field against Punjab Kings. In one game, Suresh Raina had captained CSK in the 2012 Champions League T20.

The former India captain also represented Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) in 30 IPL matches during the 2016-17 seasons when CSK was serving a two-year ban from the cash-rich league.
