Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni, who is well known for his calm nature, was seen in a mood to have fun as he scared teammate Ravindra Jadeja, acting to hit him with the ball during their clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune, on Sunday.
CSK rode on Ambati Rayudu's maiden ton to seal an eight-wicket win against SRH to virtually qualify for the Indian Premier League (IPL) playoffs.
Rayudu, who has been in great touch this season, remained not out on exactly 100 which he made from 62 balls with the help of seven fours and seven sixes as CSK chased down the target of 180 with one over to spare.
However, in the first innings when Chennai restricted Hyderabad to 179/4 in 20 overs, Dhoni decided to have fun with Jadeja.

Chasing the 180-run target, Dhoni remained not out on 20 from 14 balls as CSK reached 180 for 2 from 19 overs.
The win by former champions CSK also snapped Sunrisers six-match winning streak this season.
The Sunrisers, who have already qualified for the play-offs, remained on top of the table with 18 points from 12 matches while CSK are at second spot with 16 points from the same number of matches.
