Raina is fifth on the list with 5528 runs in the 205 matches he has played during his IPL career. He has scored runs at an average of 32.51 and at a strike rate of 136.73 with the best score of 100*.

Rohit Sharma's valiant second Indian Premier League century went in vain as a four-wicket haul from Matheesha Pathirana managed to restrict a power-packed Mumbai Indians line-up to 186/6 in their 20 overs, and Chennai Super Kings secured a 20-run win at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday.

MI won the toss and put CSK to bat first. After big half-centuries from Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shivam Dube , MS Dhoni enthralled fans with a hat-trick of massive sixes.

Dhoni came in during the final over, with his team at 186/4 after the fall of Daryl Mitchell's wicket. 'Thala' delivered a perfect finish, with a hat-trick of sixes, one over long-on, the other over long-off and the third over square leg. This helped CSK end their innings with a strong 206/4 in their 20 overs. Dhoni made 20 runs in just four balls, with three sixes, scoring at a strike rate of 500.

In the run-chase, MI was off to a fine start, with Ishan Kishan and Rohit having a 70-run partnership. Rohit managed to score his second IPL ton but did not get much support from the other end, except for another fifty-run stand with Tilak Varma .

With this win, CSK is at number three with four wins and two losses, giving them eight points. MI is in the eighth spot, with two wins and four losses, giving them four points.
