XtraTime Web Desk: After playing 8 matches in the ongoing Indian Premier League season 11 Mahendra Singh Dhoni led Chennai Super Kings is holding the top spot in the points table ahead of Sunrisers Hyderabad as they have a better Net Run Rate. Their last win came against Delhi Daredevils last night in Pune where opener Shane Watson and skipper himself scored big runs to help the home side reach a total of 211 for 4 on board.

Away captain Shreyas Iyer sent Chennai Super Kings to bat first after winning the toss. At the start Shane Watson hammered Delhi bowlers through all part of the game and scored 78 runs from just 40 deliveries. After his departure MS Dhoni shared a partnership with Ambati Rayudu to take the home side past 200 runs mark. On the way Dhoni hit five huge sixes and two boundaries in his 51 runs knock and scored his second fastest half century in IPL in just 22 deliveries. In the last 5 overs CSK added 74 runs which were mostly scored by Dhoni himself.

With this knock Dhoni has achieved another record as he has scored 3556 runs in 11 seasons,  which puts him ahead of Gautam Gambhir as the IPL captain with most runs.
