The IPL has had legends of the game playing in the tournament and piling numbers over the last decade. A total of 37 cricketers have gone on to play more than 100 IPL games over the last 12 years while more than 500 other players have played less than 100.
Fondly known as ‘Mr. IPL’, Suresh Raina has played 192 games for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Gujarat Lions. He has enjoyed a lot of success with CSK with respect to title wins and individual performances. He was also the highest run-getter in the tournament for quite a long time and is not far away from the first position at the moment.
His captain at CSK, MS Dhoni, has played 193 matches followed by Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik with 192 and 185 respectively. Four more players have played over 170 matches each.
The table is going to change a bit as Raina will not be playing IPL 2020 and will thus slip down a few places.
