Suresh Raina has congratulated MS Dhoni after the Chennai Super Kings skipper became the most capped player in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The veteran wicketkeeper-batsman achieved the feat when he took the field for the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2020.
Incidentally, MS Dhoni broke Suresh Raina’s record to achieve the incredible feat. MS Dhoni now has 194 IPL games to his name, one more than Suresh Raina who has pulled out of this year’s tournament.
The World Cup-winning skipper has been plying his trade for Chennai Super Kings since the inaugural season of IPL in 2008. He, however, had to play for now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant in 2016 and 2017 when the Chennai-based outfit was suspended due to corruption charges.
Along with him Suresh Raina has been playing for Chennai Super Kings since 2008 barring those two seasons in 2016 and 2017 when he turned up for now-defunct Gujarat Lions. And as soon as MS Dhoni stepped on the field to become IPL’s most capped player, Suresh Raina took to Twitter to congratulate him, writing:
“Congratulations Mahi bhai (@msdhoni) at becoming the most capped IPL player. Happiest that my record is being broken by you. All the best for the game today and am sure @ChennaiIPL will win this season’s @IPL.”
