On the third ball, Ben Stokes castled Dhoni to add another twist to the game.

Jos Buttler hit 23 from 10 balls at the top of the order and Stokes top-scored with 28 from 26. Image sourceQuite dramatically, the decision was reversed after Gandhe consulted square leg umpire Bruce Oxenford over the decision. leaving people in shock, a furious Dhoni, who was seated in the dugout, crossed the boundary rope and confronted the umpires asking them the reason behind the change of decision.

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

Ravindra Jadeja and Mitchell Santner started questioning the on-field umpires and amid that, Dhoni walked onto the ground to talk to the umpires. Initially, it looked as if umpire Ulhas Gandhe was about to signal no-ball only to decide otherwise as it is the duty of the leg umpire to signal the waist-high No-ball. The scene was as weird as it could get as even Stokes tried to pacify the man who is famously called "captain cool".

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. But CSK had the last laugh as Santner hit a six off the last ball to win the game for Chennai.

The 37-year-old was fined 50% of his match fee. Known for his "captain cool" tag, Dhoni's anger had unsettled a lot of people and many felt he had set up a bad precedent through his gesture. Dhoni's former India teammate Virender Sehwag is also one of them. Whereas, Dinesh Karthik and men have lost three games out of seven and are on number two of the points tally. Because if he did this, tomorrow another captain can do the same. "Then what is the value of an umpire", Sehwag told Cricbuzz.

"I feel he should have been banned for a few games by IPL to set an example".

Echoing Slater, former India wicketkeeper Deep Dasgupta said: "He's got every right to go and speak to the fourth umpire, he's got every right to speak to the match referee. but walking in while the game is on (is wrong)".
