MUMBAI: Mahendra Singh Dhoni's return to action with an unbeaten 50 provided Chennai Super Kings (CSK) with a decent total of 131/5 against Kolkata Knight Rider's (KKR) in the opening match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Wankhede stadium here on Saturday.


After CSK faced the early loss of wickets, MS Dhoni and current CSK skipper Ravindra Jadeja scored 26 as the duo steadied the ship albeit at a slower pace at first.


After losing the toss and put to bat first, CSK had a terrible start as the opener Ruturaj Gaikwad was dismissed on the third delivery of the game by Umesh Yadav. The other opener Devon Conway fell prey to Umesh's deadly spell and departed in the fifth over, leaving the team's total at 28/2.


Uthappa tried to anchor the innings with Ambati Rayudu but he got caught by Sheldon Jackson on Varun Chakaravarthy's delivery after scoring 28. Following Uthappa's dismissal, Rayudu got run out, after which Shivam Dube's departed, with the team's total at 61/5.


Later, Jadeja and Dhoni came together and ensured that there was no further damage. They had a quick partnership of 70 runs and brought CSK to the total of 131/5 in 20 overs.
