  • MS Dhoni becomes the first cricketer to play 200 IPL matches.

  • Raina wishes the CSK skipper on achieving the iconic landmark.

MS Dhoni on Monday became the first player to feature in 200 Indian Premier League (IPL) matches after he stepped onto the field for Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) match against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Dhoni, who has been a regular face in IPL since its inception, played for CSK and Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) while breaking several records. The former Indian captain has helped the Super Kings win three IPL titles while being the only captain to take his side to the playoffs in every season they have participated in the IPL so far.

“It’s just a number. I have been fortunate to have played so many games,” said Dhoni after reaching the iconic landmark.

In the same light, CSK veteran Suresh Raina came up to congratulate Dhoni via Twitter.

“The first-ever player to play his 200th match in IPL, Best of luck for today @msdhoni Bhai. Wishing you loads of success. You always make us proud #yellove #chennaisuperkings #whistlepodu,” he wrote.

Dhoni, who announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15 this year, has achieved everything in this sport and the new milestone of 200 IPL appearances looks like another feather in his illustrative career.
