Dhoni helped mastermind an unlikely victory for the Chennai Super Kings against Kings XI Punjab - setting a modest target of 160 before hanging on to win by 22 runs. The kid gave a fair chase before Dhoni stopped running.

Earlier, after electing to bat first, Chennai were off to a decent start with the pair of Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis doing well, notching up the highest opening stand for Chennai in this season.

MS Dhoni once again proved why he is still the boss behind the wickets as he nearly effected a no look throw into the stumps to dismiss KL Rahul in CSK's latest encounter at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Dhoni had arrived when R Ashwin and Murugan Ashwin had strangled the batsmen, and after absorbing a few deliveries to see off the spin threat, Dhoni unleashed another calculated assault on the KXIP quick bowlers. Meanwhile, Rahul realised a bit late that he has misjudged the run and by the time he would come back, the ball had hit the stumps.

But Dhoni's decision was more driven by the Chepauk pitch that was two-paced and taking turn, reminiscent of the track that saw Royal Challengers Bangalore being shot out for a paltry 70 here in the tournament opener.

With bowling figures of 4-1-17-2, veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was the pick of the bowlers for CSK and was also awarded the "Man of the Match" award.

In his absence, Scott Kuggeleijn is expected to make it to the playing XI and make his IPL debut against Kings XI Punjab tomorrow.

KL Rahul and Sarafaraz Khan then added 110 runs for the third wicket to revive Kings XI's chances. MS Dhoni came up with a good finish at the end, however, as 44 runs were scored off the final three overs to get the score up to 160. But the duo of Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan has turned it around for their team.

MS Dhoni became the second CSK player to play 150 games for the franchise after Suresh Raina.
