In the process, he went on to score his maiden IPL century in just 57 balls.

After bringing life to their campaign with a win over Sunrisers Hyderabad, courtesy Dhoni's smart captaincy, CSK were done in by sloppy fielding and Shikhar Dhawan's scintillating 101-run knock while chasing a competitive 180-run target.

Du Plessis scored 58 off 47 while Rayudu scored 45 not out off 25. Both teams are on the opposite end of the points table as Shreyas Iyer's team sit comfortably at the top with 12 points while MS Dhoni's team are lingering near the bottom in sixth with just six points from their eight games so far this season.

After winning toss and opting to bat first, CSK were off to a bad start as Sam Curran departed for a duck in the 1st over.

However, by that stage Chennai should have had Dhawan at least once. The left-hander edged one towards the third-man where Anrich Nortje completed a fine catch.

While Ambati Rayudu scored at a brisk pace and moved to 34 off 18 balls, DC picked their fourth wicket as Nortje dismissed MS Dhoni. He danced down to a full ball and hit it straight down the ground, and forced Karn to shorten his length.

"He was playing aggressively and he was staying right up there with the required run-rate, if we had got him out, we could have put pressure on their middle-lower order, the game might have been different, dropping three-four catches against him was a bit too many". While the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side lost to table toppers Delhi Capitals by five wickets, Rajasthan Royals were defeated by seven wickets by Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Why did Dhoni turn to Jadeja instead of Dwayne Bravo? He was unimpressed at being called with a wide first up but Dhawan could only work a single from the first legal delivery, taking it down to 15 from five balls with Axar on strike. He slog-swept the second ball of the over for a six and then followed it up with another maximum over long-off.
