MS Dhoni has become the worst captain while defending 200+ scores in the history of the Indian Premier League.
He has suffered most defeats as a captain. The 41-year-old achieved the feat after CSK‘s 4-wicket defeat against Punjab Kings at Chepauk. Batting first, the four-time champions posted 200 runs on the board, with Devon Conway slamming 92 not out.
However, the runs were not enough, as PBKS completed the chase on the last ball of the game. Almost all the batters made valuable contributions to the visiting team.
It was Dhoni’s third defeat as a skipper while defending 200+ plus total. The veteran surpassed Virat Kohl and Fad du Plessis, who registered the unwanted record twice in their careers.
