Not recognized to tweak his aspect a lot, Dhoni endured with Shane Watson and the Aussie veteran lastly got here to kind with an unbeaten 83.
Chasing 179 towards Kings XI Punjab, Watson and Faf du Plessis made gentle work of their bowlers in a report 181-run unbeaten stand to seal the chase.
The approaching to type of a mis-firing high order is what CSK wanted to come back out of a depressing begin and having accomplished that, they will surely look favourites towards a struggling KKR.
