The 37th match of the Indian Premier League is taking place between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals. MS Dhoni’s CSK is stumbling in this season to make a mark and are currently in the seventh position of the points table. They will have to try hard enough from their ongoing match in order to seal a spot in the playoffs. Their next five matches, including the current one, will make all the difference for them.

With this match in action, MS Dhoni became the first-ever cricketer to enter in 200th IPL match. In the same light, CSK’s integral part for years, Suresh Raina came up to wish Dhoni. Raina, pulled out of the IPL 2020 owing to some personal commitments, and his absence at the third position in the team is being felt big time.

Suresh Raina wrote on Twitter, “The first-ever player to play his 200th match in IPL, Best of luck for todayb@msdhoni Bhai .. Wishing you loads of success. You always make us proud #yellove #chennaisuperkings #whistlepodu.”

If CSK ignites a turnaround from their current match against Rajasthan, they can still dream of playoffs. However, their chance of being in the top four will also depend on the performances of other teams as well. Also, the net run rate will matter, and therefore, CSK will need to win matches with a good margin. Talking about CSK’s golden history, it has played all the playoffs in the season it appeared. Apart from that, the yellow team has lifted the precious trophy thrice under the guidance of MS Dhoni.

In the latest turn of events, former Indian spinner Pragyan Ojha also came with some strong views on skipper Dhoni. He stated that ‘Brand MS Dhoni’ will keep going strong irrespective of CSK’s dim performance in the season. He has earned enough in the field of cricket that his legacy can play a great role now.

Also, the sight of youngsters lining up to seek guidance from him after the match speaks volumes about his stature in the cricket world. In the current match, CSK is batting first to set their foot strong.
