IPL 2019: CSK skipper MS Dhoni who is very good when it comes to opting for DRS was in a confused state when Chahar wrapped Ajinkya Rahane on his pads. The umpire initially adjudicated it as not out. Dhoni was in a dilemma, Chahar went up to him and convinced him to take the DRS. Replays showed Deepak Chahar was right as the ball was hitting the wickets and the umpire had to overturn his decision. Rahane had to depart for 14 off 11 balls. It was a fuller-than-a-good-length ball and Rahane had walked across a long way to work it square on the leg-side trying to flick it on the on-side.
