Dhoni fined 50% match fee for confronting umpires

A wide followed after which Santner lofted the final delivery - a full toss - over long-on to send the Jaipur crowd into a frenzy.

After the match, which Chennai won by four wickets, Dhoni had admitted of breaching the Level 2 offence under Article 2.20 of the IPL's Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction. Dhoni, who had just got out of the previous ball, walked on to the pitch all the way from the dugout after the umpire at the bowler's end had called a no-ball for height which was later overturned by the square leg umpire who had a better view of it.

The CSK captain lost his temper during the tense situation of the match and barged into the middle to mark his protest against the on-field umpires' decision of not giving a waist-high no-ball. He was seen angrily gesturing at the umpire before leg umpire Chris Gaffaney asked Dhoni to leave.

"My understanding in discussing it with the captain was that we saw a no-ball called and there was confusion". The drama unfolded soon when on the fourth delivery the main umpire signalled a no ball and then all of a sudden backed out.

"I can't say whether it was right or not. It is above my pay grade early to go further than that". To everyone's horror, an angry Dhoni entered the field of play, which certainly isn't allowed as per rule and took the umpire head-on.

With the win, Dhoni has added another feather to his illustrious career, becoming the first captain to register 100 wins in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Jadeja's "awkward" six and Mitchell Santner's last ball six that sealed a win for the defending champions are among the prominent highlights of the game. "They are both very closely related", Fleming said. The first ball went for a sixer, and second, went for a no ball.
