Rohit Sharma stands at threshold of historic IPL milestone, set to join MS Dhoni in elite list

Rohit Sharma is set to join MS Dhoni in an elite section of the list of players who have played the most number of games in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Rohit is the second-most capped player in the history of the cash-rich league with 249 games.

If he goes on to play for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the 33rd game of the 17th season against Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur, Chandigarh on Thursday (April 18) then he will become the second player ever to play 250 or more IPL games.

The former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Dhoni is the most capped player in the lucrative tournament with 256 matches. Notably, Rohit is jointly tied at the second place alongside Dinesh Karthik, who has also played 249 IPL games.

Rohit’s IPL career kicked off his IPL career with Deccan Chargers (DC) under the leadership of Adam Gilchrist. The right-handed batter played a total of 45 matches for the now-defunct Deccan Chargers between 2008 to 2010. Rohit has played 244 games for his current IPL side – Mumbai Indians.
