Mumbai: MS Dhoni and his team had to start the 14th season of the Indian Premier League with a loss. Delhi Capitals beat CSK by seven wickets. For CSK, Suresh Raina (54 off 36 balls) thrilled the fans with his brilliant batting. Despite losing two wickets in the opening over, CSKA was led by batsman Raina. Raina, who was rushing for the best score, was run out. Raina had to return for a run-out due to confusion with Ravindra Jadeja.
This is Raina’s 14th run out in the IPL. Raina is a great runner and a great dive to the crease but he had to return for a runout 14 times. Raina is the third most run out player in the IPL. His comeback from last season’s tournament has also shown what his talent is all about.
Gautam Gambhir, former captain of Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals, has been run out more times in the IPL. He has been run out 16 times. Gambhir is also a several-time run-out in international cricket. Impossible speed between wickets and confusion with teammates are the main reasons for runouts.
Shikhar Dhawan is in second place in this record. There is no great speed between the wickets. Also, Dhawan does not try to make diving attempts. So he has been knocked out 15 times in the IPL. Dhawan, the opener for Delhi Capitals, was the second highest run-scorer last season. This time too, Dhawan got off to a great start. Dhawan scored 85 off 54 balls against CSKA.
In fourth place on this record is CSK’s Ambati Rayudu. Rayudu has been run out 13 times in the IPL. Rayudu is once again a key player in the CSK line-up. Rayudu, who came in at number five against Delhi, scored 23 off 16 balls.
