The mighty CSK led by Thala Dhoni, which started the tournament with a defeat is gearing up for the second match. The Whistle Podu team will lock horns with Punjab Kings today at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Today's match might create a venue for four CSK players to achieve big records. Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, all-rounder Suresh Raina, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chachar are close to chive the milestones.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is known for his lightning stumpings and wicket-keeping skills might achieve the rare milestone of 150 dismissals in the IPL tournament. Dhoni, who has 148 dismissals under his name is just two dismissals away from the milestone of 150 dismissals. The 148 dismissals include 39 stumpings and 109 catches.
Suresh Raina, who has 198 maximums in IPL, needs just two sixes to achieve the milestone of 200 sixes in IPL. If he reaches the milestone, Raina will emerge as the fourth Indian player to achieve the record. Earlier, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli achieved the milestone.
CSK pacer Shardul Thakur is just two crickets away to achieve the milestone of 50 wickets. Thakur has 48 wickets in the IPL tournament in 46 matches.
Deepak Chahar is also very close to achieving a rare feat in IPL. The speedster is two wickets away from taking 50 wickets against Punakb Kings, making him the only player to have achieved this.
