Rs. 34 cr insurance cover for Dhoni in IPL-4

New Delhi: State-owned Oriental Insurance Company has provided the highest ever personal accident cover of Rs. 34 crore to the captain of Indian cricket team Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is also the skipper of the IPL team Chennai Super Kings.

The cover includes travel risk, medical emergencies and loss of baggage. Last year, he was given an insurance cover of Rs. 10 crore.



Besides Dhoni, Oriental has provided insurance cover to five IPL teams - Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals, Deccan Chargers, Pune Warriors and Kochi Tuskers Kerala. Deccan Chargers, winner of the second edition of IPL 2009, have been provided cover of about Rs. 98 crore, said an official source.

Indian Premier League starts on Friday and will continue until May 28. This will be the first time that the league will feature 10 teams with the inclusion of Pune Warriors and Kochi Tuskers Kerala.

The cash-rich Twenty 20 cricketing extravaganza gets underway at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai where Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings (CSK) takes on Gautam Gambhir-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

Ten teams would contest for the IPL trophy and there will be a total of 74 matches.
Oriental Insurance provided an insurance cover of more than Rs. 1,000 crore to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the apex governing body and the owners of different franchises in the last edition. There were eight teams in the last season of the IPL.
