MS Dhoni has arrived in Chennai and after a jittery start he is going all out.
Chasing 203, CSK were off to a flyer, thanks to some brilliant striking from Rayudu and Watson in the powerplay. However, the KKR spin twins got them back into the mix, after Tom Curran had dismissed Shane Watson.
The blistering start meant that Raina and Dhoni could take their time during the middle stages and were happy to get in first before even thinking of teeing off.
Raina though was struggling with cramps and couldn’t really put too much pressure on his legs and ended up holding out to Sunil Narine in the deep.
Dhoni was still around and he was looking for that little flourish to get going, as he was finding it difficult to rotate the strike.
Kuldeep was in operation and Dhoni who knows him in and out, smashed him for a four down the ground, followed by a monster six over mid wicket.

Dhoni and Billings are forging a very good partnership in the middle and it looks like we could be in for a another CSK heist at the Chepauk.
Just as I write this MS Dhoni has nicked off to the PC. Billings is still out there and Jadeja is out in the middle to join him. It is kind of baffling to see Bravo not walk out to the middle after his heroics against Mumbai on Saturday.
