MS Dhoni Joins Elite 5000 Run Club in IPL: What’s Next for the CSK Skipper?

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni made headlines on Monday when he joined the exclusive club of cricketers who have completed 5000 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The right-hander achieved the feat during CSK’s homecoming match against Lucknow Super Giants, where he scored a quickfire 12 runs off just three balls, including two massive sixes.

Here’s a closer look at what MS Dhoni’s achievement means for him and the IPL

  • MS Dhoni becomes the seventh player to breach the 5000-run mark in the history of IPL.
  • Before the Lucknow Super Giants match, he had scored 4978 runs in 207 innings. He reached the 5000-run landmark in his 208th innings.
  • Currently, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, David Warner, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, and AB de Villiers are ahead of Dhoni in the list of most IPL runs.
  • MS Dhoni now needs 158 runs during the tournament to surpass AB de Villiers in the list and take the No. 6 spot on the table.
  • Kohli leads the overall IPL run chart with 6707 runs from 224 matches, followed by Dhawan with 6284 runs in 207 IPL matches.
  • With 5937 runs, David Warner acquires the third spot, while Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma is fourth with 5880 runs in 228 IPL matches.
  • Former CSK player Raina (5528 runs in 205 IPL matches) and AB de Villiers (5162 runs in 184 IPL matches) are fifth and sixth on the list, respectively.
  • Dhoni has 5004 runs from 234 matches, with a strike rate of 135.54 and an average of 39.09.
  • Dhoni made his IPL debut for CSK in 2008 and has played for the team ever since, except for the two seasons when he played for Rising Pune Supergiants.
  • CSK posted a challenging total of 218 runs for Lucknow Super Giants to chase, courtesy of fine knocks from Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, and Ambati Rayudu.

Dhoni’s achievement is a testament to his exceptional skills as a batsman and his contribution to the IPL over the years. It will be interesting to see if he can surpass de Villiers and move up the ladder in the list of most IPL runs. For now, CSK fans can revel in the glory of their captain’s latest milestone and look forward to more fireworks from the team as the tournament progresses.
