On the day of the 13th anniversary of his captaincy debut for Chennai Super Kings, Mahendra Singh Dhoni scripted a world record as he took the field in the IPL 2021 game against Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. 

On April 19, 2008, Dhoni had donned the Chennai yellow for the first time in his career, while leading the side to a 33-run win against Kings XI Punjab in Chandigarh. 13 years hence, Dhoni is captaining the same side for the 200th time, becoming the first-ever captain in T20 cricket to lead a single side or franchise in 200 games. Virat Kohli, the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore, stands second with 128 appearances as captain for the franchise.

In 200 games as captain, which includes matches in the presently-defunct Champions League T20, CSK have won 120 matches and lost 77. Overall, he has played as a skipper in 286 T20 matches, which includes 72 for the Indian cricket team and the remaining 16 for the Rising Pune Supergiants.
