3. Rohit Sharma (200 matches)

India’s current captain, Rohit Sharma has, unarguably, played the biggest role in helping Mumbai Indians become the most successful franchise in the Indian Premier League. He took over the captaincy midway during the 2011 season and the rest was history.

Under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, Mumbai Indians won five IPL titles in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020. All these years, Rohit has been a vital cog in the team. Ahead of the start of the 2024 IPL season, the franchise left their fans in shock as Hardik Pandya took over the captaincy from Rohit.

Under Pandya, MI haven’t made a great start to their campaign, having lost both games played thus far. On Wednesday, Rohit Sharma marked his 200th appearance for MI during the clash against SRH. With that, he became only the third player to play 200 IPL matches for one franchise.

2. MS Dhoni (222 matches)

 Legendary skipper, MS Dhoni is in the twilight phase of his IPL career. Ahead of the 2024 IPL season, Dhoni handed over the captaincy duties to Ruturaj Gaikwad, which signaled that this might be the last season for him as a player in Yellow Jersey.

Dhoni has been part of the franchise since the inception of the tournament. He was picked up as an icon player ahead of the start of the inaugural season and that turned out to be their best-ever pick at the auction.

CSK is, undeniably, the strongest outfit in the tournament. They are the most consistent franchise, having managed to reach the playoffs 12 out of 14 times.

MS Dhoni has led the franchise to win five titles with the last being won in 2023 after beating Gujarat in the final. MS Dhoni has played a record 222 matches for CSK, which is the second most by any player for a particular franchise.

  1. Virat Kohli (239 matches)

 Despite not winning a single title in the Indian Premier League, the Royal Challengers Bangalore boasts of massive fan following in IPL. Despite facing disappointment on numerous occasions, the fans turn up every year to support their franchise with the dream of winning their first-ever IPL title.

One of the biggest reasons behind RCB’s popularity is the presence of star batter Virat Kohli in the team. India’s run-machine, Virat Kohli has been the face of the Red Army for many years. Kohli has been a consistent performer for the team and has led the team for many years.

He, in fact, holds the record for playing the most number of matches for a single franchise in IPL. Virat Kohli has played 239 matches for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.
