At the Wankhede Stadium, MS Dhoni’s extraordinary power hitting saw Chennai Super Kings cross the 200-run mark. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shivam Dube’s fifties provided a solid platform for CSK after a slow start. Yet Dhoni’s incredible last four ball sixes on the other hand made their total to climb up to 206 runs for the loss of 4 wickets.

186/4 in the 19th over Dhoni started his innings by nailing three consecutive balls into a six. He remained unbeaten at 20 off just 4 deliveries, which he rounded off with a final double.

Chennai opted to bat first after winning the toss and they suffered an early blow when Ajinkya Rahane was out cheaply. However, some key partnerships between Rachin Ravindra, Gaikwad and Dube resulted in a commanding total.
