With runs flowing in all directions, MS Dhoni turned to the off-spin of Ravichandran Ashwin to stem the run flow with no avail though. The first ball was smashed straight down the ground and over the long-on fence for a huge six and brought up his fifty a few balls later. There was spin at both ends with the wily  Ravindra Jadeja on the other end. The ball still perished over the boundary ropes with yet another massive hit to clear the long on six.

 

Earlier, There was no-stopping him. He lofted the ball over the infield straight down the ground and then. The next over witnessed absolute carnage from Ashish Nehra’s over. The Delhi battle was a one way street to Najafgarh. Rolling back the years, he went ballistic on the off-side and spanked three consecutive boundaries. MS Dhoni’s men looked clueless and the score  raced over 50 in just the fifth over. The run flow continued with a clever six over the wicket-keeper for another six.

 

Earlier, Chennai Super Kings won the toss and predictably decided to field first. Chennai have retained the same team that cruised to a seven wicket win against Mumbai Indians in the eliminator. Kings XI Punjab on the other hand have brought in their strike bowler Sandeep Sharma, who replaces Rishi Dhawan.
