Dhoni, who was a centre of attraction at the IPL Auction in 2008 due to his captaincy in the T20 World Cup previous year. His bid started at a base price for $400,000 but was eventually sold for $1,500,000.

He has captained CSK to five IPL titles, making him one of the most successful captains in the history of the tournament. Even though he’s let Ruturaj Gaikwad take charge this season, Dhoni still has a big impact on the team as everyone wishes to learn from the experience.
