Dhoni becomes most-capped IPL player; Priyam Garg is youngest to get a 50 for SRH
Even though CSK slipped to their third loss in a row - it was a day to remember for MS Dhoni; here are a few noteworthy statistical milestones from the game between CSK and SRH

Here are a few noteworthy statistical nuggets - apart from the usual number-crunching -  from the game between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad:

MS Dhoni surpasses Suresh Raina to become the most capped player

When MS Dhoni went in for the toss against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday, October 2, 2020, he became the most capped player in IPL. Prior to this match, his team-mate Suresh Raina had appeared in 193 matches, which was the most by a player. Dhoni has played 164 matches in a Chennai Super Kings jersey, which is the joint-most alongside Raina. His other 30 matches came when he was playing for the now defunct Rising Pune Supergiant franchise. Dhoni has captained 178 matches out of the 194 played and he is the only captain to win over 100 matches.

David Warner fails to register a 50+ scores for the 4th consecutive innings

It is a rarity in IPL that David Warner fails to achieve a 50+ score in four successive innings, especially from the time he shifted to Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2014. This was only the 2nd instance of such a drought for Warner in Hyderabad colours, which is also the most. The other 4-inning streak came in the 2016 edition of IPL, which started against Gujarat Lions and ended against Delhi Capitals. Warner also broke the chain of 50+ scores he had against Chennai Super Kings in IPL. Prior to this match, Warner was on a five match streak of 50+ scores against Chennai.

Youngest half-centurion for SRH in IPL

The Sunrisers Hyderabad middle order lies in the hands of youngsters who are fairly new to this standard of cricket. One of them, in fact, two of them stepped up to the task, but it was Priyam Garg who went on to register his maiden IPL half-century. At the age of 19 years and 307 days, Garg became the youngest half-centurion for the Sunrisers in IPL. Prior to him, in the debut season of Sunrisers, Biplab Samantray scored a half-century at the age of 24 years and 154 days, which was the youngest then.

Ravindra Jadeja registers his maiden IPL half-century

Batting down the order, Ravindra Jadeja hasn’t got the amount of chances to prove himself with the bat. Today, he got a chance to showcase himself as a batsman after a disastrous bowling and fielding effort. Jadeja, reached his first IPL half-century with a six of T Natarajan in the 18th over. En route his half-century, he also reached 2000 IPL runs. By virtue of that fifty, Jadeja became the fourth allrounder in IPL to score 2000 IPL runs and bag 50 wickets.

Chennai Super Kings lose three in a row

Chennai Super Kings are one of the most successful teams in the IPL and it is not often that they lose three in a row. The last time Chennai lost three consecutive matches was way back in the 2014 edition of IPL. They lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore, Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad. In this edition of IPL, they have lost to Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. In addition, this is only their 2nd season of IPL in which Chennai have lost three out of their first 4 matches. In the 2009 IPL season, they lost to Mumbai Indians in their first match, Delhi Capitals in their 3rd and Deccan Chargers in their 4th match.
