CSK win a thriller

Mitchell Santner smashed Ben Stokes into the stands off the final delivery to guide Chennai Super Kings to a thrilling four wicket victory in an IPL game which saw a very public outburst from winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni yesterday.

CSK recorded their sixth win in seven games as they made rough weather of a 152 run target before Santner's six sealed a dramatic final over in which CSK needed 18 runs.

Dhoni scored 58 off 43 and added 95 with Ambati Rayudu for the fifth wicket. However Stokes got him with a yorker before a clear waist high no-ball to Santner was ruled out by Ulhas Gandhe.

This prompted an angry Dhoni to enter the ground and blast Gandhe before leg umpire Bruce Oxenford calmed him and sent him back before Santner finished it off in style.


RAJASTHAN: 151 for 7 (Stokes 28, Buttler 23; Jadeja 2-20)

CHENNAI: 155 for six in 20 overs (Dhoni 58, Rayudu 57; Stokes 2-39)

Result: CSK won by 4 wkts.

Player-of-the-match: Dhoni
