Durban - Mahendra Singh Dhoni blasted a quick-fire 31 (off 23 balls) to help the Chennai Super Kings to a four-wicket victory over Yorkshire in their Champions League Twenty20 match at Kingsmead on Monday.

Full scorecard

Dhoni struck two fours and two sixes as the Indian side reached 141 for six, with six balls to spare, in reply to Yorkshire’s 140 for six. Subramaniam Badrinath also shined for Chennai with 47 from 38 balls.

Gary Ballance was Yorkshire’s best batsman with 58 off 38 balls while Chennai’s bowling attack was led by South Africa's Albie Morkel, who claimed 2-12, while Australian paceman Doug Bollinger claimed 2-16.

The result had no impact on the final standings in Group B as both teams had already been eliminated from semi-final contention.
