MS Dhoni completes 5000 runs in IPL

During the match against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni accomplished another impressive feat in his remarkable 16-year-long Indian Premier League (IPL) career by surpassing the 5000-run milestone in the cash-rich tournament.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain, etched his name in the history books yet again during their encounter against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The veteran cricketer smashed two massive sixes off Mark Wood in the 20th over of the CSK innings to become only the fifth Indian and seventh overall to complete 5,000 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The adoring Chepauk crowd went into a frenzy as they caught a glimpse of their beloved 'Thala', Dhoni, as he carted two big sixes in style. The first six traveled a whopping 89 meters before Dhoni dispatched another to the boundary ropes. However, the CSK skipper was dismissed off the third ball of the over when he tried to go for a third six but ended up losing his wicket after scoring 12 runs off three deliveries.

Dhoni, who achieved the milestone in his 236th IPL match, joined an elite list of players, including Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, David Warner, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, and AB de Villiers, who have scored over 5,000 runs in the IPL. Currently, Kohli leads the chart with 6,706 runs in 224 matches, followed by Dhawan (6,284 in 207 matches), Warner (5,937 in 163 matches), Rohit (5,880 runs in 228 matches), Raina (5,528 runs in 205 matches), and de Villiers (5,162 runs in 184 matches).

Despite his dismissal, Dhoni's feat was celebrated by the CSK fans as they showed their love and admiration for the former Indian captain. His incredible contribution to the IPL has not only cemented his legacy as one of the greatest Indian cricketers of all time but also elevated his status as a legend in the history of the league.
