Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya chipped in with a crucial 23 off 18 balls.

“It’s a massive boost to any opposition if he’s (Dhoni) not around. His presence does a lot for their team. When you don’t have him when you’re chasing, it becomes slightly difficult. They must have felt his absence. He was sick, uncontrollable. It was a great effort from us. We played some excellent cricket. We are not yet there (playoffs). We have to be at it. Next three – two against KKR and one against SRH. As a team when we go forward, we are clear what to do. We want more good days than bad days. We have learnt from our losses,” said Rohit at the post-match presentation.

Brief scores: Mumbai Indians 155/4 (Rohit Sharma 67, Evin Lewis 32; Mitchell Santner 2/13) vs Chennai Super Kings
