In the 2022 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), MS Dhoni is playing as a wicketkeeper-batsman for Chennai Super Kings i.e. CSK. Even IPL 2022 has started well for them, but the team had to lose the first match. MS Dhoni scored a strong half-century against Kolkata Knight Riders, but CSK did not get much contribution from the rest of the players. At the same time, MS Dhoni’s target against Lucknow Super Giants will be to achieve a big achievement.
MS Dhoni scored 50 runs in 38 balls against KKR. At the same time, if MS Dhoni scores only 15 runs in the match against Lucknow Super Giants today i.e. on March 31, then a big achievement will be recorded in his name. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who made Chennai Super Kings the IPL champion four times, is about to achieve a special achievement in T20 cricket. Although five more Indian players have achieved this feat before, he will be the only player to do so as a wicket-keeper. Actually, Dhoni needs only 15 runs to complete 7000 T20 runs.
MS Dhoni has so far scored 6985 runs in this short format of cricket by combining T20 International cricket, domestic cricket and franchise cricket. He will be the sixth Indian batsman to reach this milestone. This will be a huge achievement for Dhoni, who has batted lower down the order throughout his career. Scoring so many runs despite batting for so long shows how consistent he has been over the years. Before Dhoni, this feat has been achieved for India by Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina and Robin Uthappa.
