MS Dhoni: Two off last ball

Skipper MS Dhoni led from the front as the Chennai Super Kings snatched a last-gasp victory over Rajasthan Royals in their IPL clash on Saturday.

With eight required at the start of the last over, Dhoni scampered two off Stuart Binny's final ball to seal a fourth victory in seven matches for the home side.

Owais Shah was the standout performer for Rajasthan, smashing three sixes and four fours on his way to 52 off 43 balls.

Shah, the second highest run-scorer in this year's IPL with 268 in seven games, fell to the last ball of the innings when he was caught behind by Dhoni off Nuwan Kulasekara.

Chasing 147 for victory opener Faf du Plessis clobbered 73 off 52 balls, including two sixes and six fours, to put Chennai in position.

Du Plessis put on half-century stands with Subramaniam Badrinath (15) and Suresh Raina (26), before Dhoni, partnered by Dwayne Bravo carried the home side over the line .
