“The most consistent and successful captain”, Twitter bows down in respect as MS Dhoni to lead CSK for the 200th time

MS Dhoni has been a terrific name in the antiquity of the Indian cricket

MS Dhoni has been one of the leading revolutionaries of Indian cricket and his presence in the IPL has been nothing short of mesmerizing. Today is a big day for the hard-hitting former Indian captain as he is going to lead in his 200th match in the antiquity of IPL for the Chennai Super Kings.

Another age-old rivalry in the antiquity of the IPL will unfurl ahead of us as Chepauk builds up the battle-symphony to the clash of two reckoning foes who are soaring high through the ranks of the latest IPL campaign. It is Chennai Super Kings versus Rajasthan Royals as the former plays host to what can be an extremely unwelcome outing for the latter.

Chennai Super Kings would be hoping to carry forth their newfound momentum as they secured 2 consecutive wins in their last couple of games, beating the likes of Lucknow Super Giants and Mumbai Indians. In a massive sigh of reprieve, they were happy to see their batting unit stage a strong turnaround and most importantly through different batters with Ruturaj Gaikwad being the constant.

Rajasthan Royals started their campaign on an extremely bright note as they tamed the Sunrisers Hyderabad without any real contention but were soon humbled by a high-flying Punjab Kings in a run-fest like none other. However, they were quick to learn from their mistakes and left Delhi Capitals in absolute shatters as they secured another 57-runs win.

This is a contest where both the teams have two in-form batters who will try and put their best foot forward, hoping to pile up a 190-plus total on the scorecard wherein the bowlers of both the sides would have a few questions doing eminent rounds, particularly that of Chennai Super Kings who are still to get in that groove that they would have bargained for at the beginning of the season.
