Dhoni 1st captain to record 100 wins in IPL history

MS Dhoni and records go hand in hand. On Thursday, the 37-year-old became the first captain to win 100 matches in the Indian Premier League. This was after he led Chennai Super Kings to a thrilling four-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur. Former KKR captain Gautam Gambhir is second on the list with 71 wins (129 matches).

Prior to this match, Dhoni had 99 wins as captain from 165 matches at a win percentage of 60.36. Dhoni has led CSK in 152 matches wherein he has won 95 as captain. In 2016, Dhoni led Rising Pune Supergiant in 14 matches and won only five of them.

Dhoni has been in a good run of form in IPL 2019. On Thursday, he once again played a match-winning 58 of 43 balls to take CSK over the line against RR.

The wicketkeeper-batsman has also scored more than 200 runs from six matches and has remained unbeaten on three of those occasions.
