Dubai: Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the captain of the IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings, is known for his excellent game, captaincy and wicketkeeping. However, the magic of Mahi’s captaincy in IPL 2020 seems to have faded a bit.
But in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Friday, MS Dhoni will keep an eye on achieving a special achievement in this world’s biggest T20 league. Let’s know what new record Dhoni will create this time.
The only wicketkeeper to take 100 IPL catches
