When former Indian cricketer and current Chennai Super Kings (CSK) wicket-keeper batter, MS Dhoni, takes the field against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Sunday, he will join Rohit Sharma in the list of players to have made more than 350 appearances in the shortest format of the game.
Rohit is the only other Indian on the list, having played 372 matches in total for club and country. Among world cricketers, West Indies player and Rohit’s Mumbai Indians (MI) teammate, Kieron Pollard, leads the way with 583 appearances.
Additionally, Dhoni also has the chance to surpass former teammate, Suresh Raina, in the list for most sixes for a single franchise. Raina has scored 219 in total for CSK while Dhoni is currently sitting at 217 sixes.
Chris Gayle tops the list with 263 sixes for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) while Pollard has scored 249 for MI. RCB batting duo of AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli are next with 240 and 226 sixes respectively.
Meanwhile, CSK has lost their first two games of an IPL season for the first time ever. They were humbled by KKR in the opening match of the season before being undone by Lucknow Super Giants in the next.
They have a lot of things to figure out going into the game against PBKS, who are strong in the batting department. CSK also needs to address their death bowling, which took a beating in the previous game.
CSK expected playing XI against PBKS:
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Dwaine Pretorius, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, KM Asif.
