This time, Dhoni will complete the historic double as the skipper for only CSK and thus become the first captain in the history of IPL to lead a franchise for the 200th time. Meanwhile, the skipper was felicitated by CSK owner N. Srinivasan ahead of his milestone match.  Follow CSK vs RR & IPL 2023 Live Updates with InsideSport.IN.
