Most Matches in The IPL History as a Captain

The IPL is a super popular and wealthy cricket league. Leading a team here is a big deal!  Out of all the captains in the IPL’s history, only a few have played over 100 matches as captain, and just two have done it more than 150 times. Let’s see who are the top captains, who have played the most number of IPL matches.


MS Dhoni

Dhoni holds the record for most IPL matches captained (226), won 133 and lost 99, boasting a win percentage of 58.84 – the highest among captains with over 80 matches. Leading CSK and RPS, Dhoni has clinched an impressive 5 IPL trophies and reached the finals a record 11 times!


Rohit Sharma

Second on the list of players with the most matches as captain of a team is Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma captained Mumbai Indians for 11 years, winning an impressive 87 matches out of 158.  His win rate is second only to Dhoni’s. However, he has stepped down and Hardik Pandya is now leading the Mumbai Indians. His win percentage of 55.06 is only behind Dhoni’s


Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli, another IPL leader, sadly never clinched a trophy despite captaining Royal Challengers Bangalore for 11 seasons. Kohli captained RCB in 143 games, won 66 matches but lost 70, the only captain with more losses than wins among those leading over 100 games.


Gautam Gambhir

Gautam Gambhir, a two-time IPL champion with KKR, is back with the team as a mentor for IPL 2024.  An aggressive leader, he captained KKR and Delhi Capitals for a total of 129 matches, winning an impressive 71! His win percentage of 55.03 is only marginally behind Rohit’s 55.06. Gambhir has now rejoined KKR for IPL 2024 as a mentor.


David Warner

David Warner captained both Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals, winning the 2016 title with Hyderabad. He became the skipper of the Capitals after Rishabh Pant could not play in the 2023 IPL.  However, his leadership struggled later in his career and was released by Sunrisers in 2022. He has won 40 out of the 83 matches he led a team in and lost 41.
