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 in the 2016-17 seasons when CSK was serving a two-year ban from the cash-rich league.
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.
