He later returned with figures of 1/18 in three overs, accounting for the wicket of SRH captain David Warner and thus providing CSK with their first wicket.
CSK lost their first three wickets within the powerplay as SRH ensured that the chasing side’s run rate remained alarmingly low. At the start of the 10th over, CSK found themselves at 43/4.
Chasing 217 for the highest total chased in IPL history, Dhoni on Tuesday came to the middle in the 14th over when CSK needed 103 off 38 balls. Faf du Plessis at the other end was struggling at that point.

In videos posted on their Instagram handle, Dhoni could be seen facing Ravindra Jadeja and Piyush Chawla under the lights at the ICC Academy in Dubai.

Both Dhoni and Raina have called time on their international careers.
It marked the end of a trophy-laden career spanning nearly 15 years, in which Dhoni also oversaw the rise of the likes of current Indian captain Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
From the inaugural World T20 triumph in 2007 to the fabled 2011 50-over World Cup win on home soil and then the 2013 Champions Trophy victory in England, Dhoni led by example and tasted the success which no other Indian captain has ever managed.

Dhoni, who made his ODI debut in 2004, changed the face of Indian cricket with his calm demeanour, sharp understanding of the game and astute leadership qualities.
The 39-year-old’s last outing in India colours was during the World Cup semi-final defeat against New Zealand.
Renowned for his ability in the field, Raina was part of the Indian teams that won the 2011 World Cup and the 2013 Champions Trophy, both under the captaincy of Dhoni.
“Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout.from 1929 hrs consider me as Retired (sic)”, read the post of the formal announcement.
Dhoni had undergone the mandatory test before being eligible to join the camp alongwith teammate Monu Kumar Singh at a Ranchi hospital, sources told IANS.
Dhoni will lead CSK in the 13th edition of the cash-rich league which will be played in UAE from September 19 after it was postponed in March due to the COVID-19 crisis.
