Raina, Dhoni and Tahir power CSK to comprehensive win over Delhi

M.S. Dhoni scored quick fire runs and claimed crucial stumpings to guide Chennai Super Kings to victory in their clash with Delhi Capitals on Wednesday.

He struck 44 off 22 balls and Ravindra Jadeja smashed 25 off 10 balls as the Super Kings came alive in the final six of their 20 overs to reach 179-4.

Dhoni then stumped Shreyas Iyer which was one the most crucial wickets, just as he posed a major threat on 44.

The Capitals, who were sitting at the top of the table at the start of the game, collapsed to 99 all out and an 80-run defeat.

"I watch the ball and hit the ball," was his simple explanation for the explosive batting.

"I think by the 20th over you are almost ready and you swing at everything," he added.

Delhi were in the hunt whilst Iyer was at the crease but after he was stumped the pitch assisted the spinners as Imran Tahir took four wickets and Jadeja three to skittle Delhi out in less than 17 overs.

Delhi collapsed from 81-4 to 99 all out.

Both teams have already qualified for the playoffs that start next week.
