1. Winning most IPL trophies as captain
The reason behind Chennai Super Kings’ incredible consistency might be Dhoni and his leadership. Dhoni has led the team to nine semifinals in the ten seasons that the team has played. From those nine times, Dhoni has managed to win the trophy thrice.
Till now Mumbai Indians’ Rohit Sharma and CSK’s Dhoni are the two captains to have won the title thrice. Both of them will look to repeat the feat and become the team with most titles. CSK is much more experienced and might urn away with the title if they replicate their previous season’s performances.
Last season Dhoni played a vital role by scoring 455 runs. Most of the CSK players have one or two years at most left in their career. As a result they will keen to win the trophy for one last time. If that happens, Dhoni will become the captain with most IPL trophies. The record might be broken later but it will be a highlight of his career when he retires.
