Furious Dhoni fined for storming on field in IPL

Indian umpire Ulhas Gandhe signalled a no-ball for height, only for his square-leg colleague Bruce Oxenford to overrule and Dhoni, who had been bowled by Stokes on the previous delivery, ran out of the dugout to argue with the officials.

Chennai beat Rajasthan Royals in a last-ball thriller but controversy erupted on the fourth ball of the final over when paceman Ben Stokes bowled a full toss to new batsman Mitchell Santner.

Former India swashbuckling opener Virender Sehwag feels Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who was fined 50 per cent of his match fees for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct, had been let off easy and the Chennai Super Kings' skipper should have been banned for at least two or three games. Dhoni was dismissed by Stokes on the third ball of the over but Mitchell Santner's last ball six ensured that the defending champions got over the line with four wickets to spare.

"My understanding in discussing it with the captain was that we saw a no-ball called and there was confusion". He had taken one of the best catches of the IPL to send back Kedar Jadhav and had also top-scored in the Royals' innings. In fact, he was seen constantly saying that Gandhe did call it a no-ball before the decision was overturned. I know it's MS Dhoni and he can do anything in this country but you are not allowed to leave the dug out and go and point a finger at the umpire.

"I am not sure if that's the right thing to do", Buttler said.

At the end no ball was not given, but Santer's six hit off the final delivery and made Chennai Super Kings the victor of the match by four wickets.

"Obviously tensions are running high in the IPL, every run counts and it was a big moment in the game", the Englishman said.

Meanwhile, after the super-thrilling CSK win last night, Dhoni has become the first ever captain to achieve the feat of 100 IPL wins to his credit. Chennai will next take on Kolkata Knight Riders on April 14.
