Chennai: The 14th season of the Indian Premier League starts on the 9th of this month. The Chennai Super Kings, who missed out on a place in the play-offs last season, are gearing up for a strong comeback this time around. CSK, who have won the title three times, are looking forward to the performance of skipper MS Dhoni.
When Dhoni did not live up to expectations last season, CSKA was eliminated for the first time in history. Dhoni, who started training earlier this season, is aiming for a strong comeback. Many records are waiting for Dhoni this time. Let’s see what they are.
MS Dhoni is currently the eighth highest run-scorer in the IPL. Dhoni needs 368 runs to reach the milestone of 5,000 runs. Unlike last season, Dhoni, who started training earlier, is doing well on the net. Dhoni, who fills the net with sixes, is expected to reach 5,000 runs this season.
MS Dhoni is a player who brings his own style when he hits sixes. The balls that Dhoni flew to the gallery through a helicopter shot will never be forgotten by the fans. This time, Dhoni has a chance to hit the milestone of 250 sixes. For that, Dhoni needs 35 sixes this season. Dhoni has hit 215 sixes so far. Chris Gayle (349) and AB de Villiers (235) are ahead of Dhoni in this record. Dhoni, who batted brilliantly in the death over, was the highest run scorer in the 20th over.
As a wicket-keeper, MS Dhoni has a chance of getting 150 dismissals. Dhoni is one of the greatest wicket-keepers of all time in world cricket. Dhoni, who currently has 148 dismissals, needs just two more wickets to become the first wicket-keeper to make 150 dismissals in the IPL. This time, of course, Dhoni is sure to break the record.
