MS Dhoni returned to action for Chennai Super Kings during their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 match against Delhi Capitals after missing their earlier game as he was down with fever. It was the second time Dhoni missed a CSK game this season -- the first being against Sunrisers Hyderabad because of back spasms.

“Less dew today, because of the cloud cover. When you’ve played enough international cricket it’s never 100% (talking about fitness). You’re always a little less than that. We were looking to bat first anyway,” he said at the toss.
