Rayudu, meanwhile, brought up his first fifty of the season as he and Dhoni added 95 runs from 71 balls to keep CSK alive in the game. In the bowling department, spin duo Imran Tahir and Harbhajan Singh have been the top performers in the last games followed by Deepak Chahar, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo.

Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni played knocks which could be preserved as a template for run-chases and rescue acts.

He lost Rayudu in the 18th over and with 30 needed from the final 12 deliveries, Dhoni, known for his finishing prowess, got his team in a winning position despite struggling with cramps in the final few overs.

At 24 for 4, Dhoni walked in and with two young spinners in Shreyas Gopal and Riyan Parag (0/24 in 3 overs) bowling in tandem, he launched into the duo hitting them for a six each as Rayudu kept on rotating the strike, hitting the odd boundaries in between. Stokes delivered the ideal yorker that castled the CSK captain for 58 from 43 balls.

Ben Stokes delivered a full toss that seemed pretty high.

But the graphic wasn't entirely wrong - the poll did find that Trump had a 58% approval rating on the economy. The Labor Department also said the number of people seeking unemployment benefits fell to a 49-year low.

"Our understanding was that the umpire at the bowler's end had called the no ball and then there was confusion around whether it was a no ball or not", Stephen Fleming said. He was seen angrily gesturing at the umpire before leg umpire Chris Gaffaney asked Dhoni to leave. It was not his call to make as a no-ball for height is usually signalled by the square-leg umpire. After sending Shardul Thakur's first three balls to the boundary, he tried to hit him over the off-side and skied a catch to extra-cover. Ravindra Jadeja got into a heated argument with the on-field umpires thereafter.

Even as Ravindra Jadeja protested against the decision, a furious Dhoni walked onto the field to confront the two umpires.

He was very angry and pointed at the umpire that he had signaled a no-ball. However, RR still managed to keep things in their favour as CSK needed 39 off the final three overs. Santner struck one down the ground to collect runs. Stokes missed his line as the next one went for a wide.

At the end no ball was not given, but Santer's six hit off the final delivery and made Chennai Super Kings the victor of the match by four wickets. Once again, the defending champions found a way to win from a tricky situation.

Following the game, MS Dhoni, who scored 58, was charged for breaching IPL's code of conduct.
