After the IPL 2023 match against the Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur, Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni recalls being 183 Not Out

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a former captain of India, has a special connection to Jaipur’s Sawai Mansingh Stadium. At this location, in 2005, Dhoni recorded his highest-ever ODI score of 183 not out during his illustrious international career.

It was Dhoni’s 22nd ODI game. Dhoni’s stunning innings, which came off just 145 balls and was laced with 10 sixes and 15 fours, is still his finest performance in this format. The 183 not out served as a testament to Dhoni’s class in international cricket, and he never looked back in his career after that.

Dhoni’s trip to the same location on Thursday didn’t go as planned

Dhoni’s trip to the same location on Thursday didn’t go as planned as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) lost to the Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals by 32 runs in an IPL 2023 encounter. In the post-game press conference, Dhoni did acknowledge the significance of this location to him.

“This is a very special place; my first ODI hundred gave me 10 games in Vizag, but the 183 I scored here gave me another year.” Being back here was wonderful, Dhoni remarked during the post-game presentation.

With 10,773 runs from 350 games, an average of over 50, 10 hundreds, 73 fifty-sevens, and a strike rate of 87.56, Dhoni finished his ODI career. Dhoni, 41, may be playing his farewell game at this location right now.

The CSK captain praised his bowlers for containing Royals hitters in the middle of their innings

The CSK captain praised his bowlers for containing Royals hitters in the middle of their innings. “Bowlers bowled well in the middle overs, but a lot of edges went for boundaries, at least 5-6 went for them, and that had made a difference. We struggled to start the power play with the bat well since they had par-plus, according to Dhoni.
