new Delhi. MS Dhoni has turned 40 years old, but age is just a number. From time to time, he keeps reminding the fans about this thing with his awesomeness on the field. He proved it just last week. In the opening match of IPL 2022 (IPL 2022), former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Dhoni played an unbeaten 50 off 38 balls against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
Dhoni came on the field in the match when CSK lost 5 wickets for 61 runs. Then with the captain Ravindra Jadeja, he made an unbroken partnership of 70 runs and took the team to a respectable score of 131/5. Although the team lost the match by 6 wickets, now Dhoni’s return to form can prove to be a big plus point for CSK.
Dhoni just 15 runs away from the big record
CSK’s eyes are now on the match to be played against Lucknow Super Giants on Thursday, where Dhoni can also make another special achievement. Dhoni is just 15 runs away from this big record. So far in the history of T20 cricket, only 4 Indian batsmen have been able to cross the 7 thousand runs mark and Dhoni can make this special achievement in his name on Thursday.
Highest run scorers in T20 cricket by Indian cricketers
The former Indian captain is just 15 runs away from the figure of 7 thousand runs in T20 cricket. Right now only Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Robin Uthappa have been able to score more than 7 thousand runs in this format.
