Dhoni claims century of wins
Mahendra Singh Dhoni notched his 100th win as a captain in the Indian Premier League on Friday (Thailand time), helping Chennai Super Kings pull off a thrilling four-wicket win against the Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur.
Dhoni top-scored with 58 off 43 deliveries as Chennai chased down their target of 152 with number eight Mitchell Santner hitting a last-ball six.
However, the emotionally-charged encounter witnessed Dhoni losing his cool as he argued an umpiring call in the 20th and final over after storming on to the field.
With Chennai needing eight runs off the last three deliveries Santner faced a full toss from Ben Stokes that seemed above waist height – the umpire duly stuck out his hand to signal a no-ball, only for him to be overruled by his officiating partner at square leg.
An angry Dhoni walked out of the dugout and got into a heated exchange with the umpires.
The former India captain has led Chennai to three titles in the world’s most popular T20 league.
