Cricket News: Reactions: MS Dhoni reaches 200 matches as CSK captain | Twitter reactions to MS Dhoni reaching landmark 200 figure

The great MS Dhoni has added another feather to his cap, becoming the first ever player to captain 200 matches for a single Indian Premier League (IPL) team. Dhoni reached the milestone for his beloved Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their encounter against Rajasthan Royals on April 12 at Chepauk.

Dhoni is widely considered as the greatest IPL captain and one of the best ever in all white-ball cricket. Heading into his 200th match as CSK captain, Dhoni had a win percentage of 60.60%, with 11 playoff appearances, nine finals and four titles. With CSK back at Chepauk in the 2023 season, Dhoni, affectionately known as “thala”, is determined to add another title in what could be the 41-year old’s final season.

That Dhoni has reached the landmark considering CSK were not in the IPL in 2016 and 2017 is a terrific achievement. He captained Rising Pune Supergiant in those two years, leading the franchise to a final in 2017, where the team fell agonisingly short against Mumbai Indians.

Dhoni was presented with a special momento before the match against the Royals. Of course, fans were all over it on social media, taking to Twitter to praise one of India’s most loved sons.

“CSK isn’t just a franchise, It’s a family & the Daddy of this family is MS Dhoni,” one tweet read. “Everytime MS Dhoni steps on the pitch, there’s a record made. As he leads Chennai Super Kings against Rajasthan Royals #IPL2023 today, Dhoni will mark his 200th appearance as their skipper in the tournament. THE GOAT of IPL,” read another.
