MS Dhoni is usually not the one to let his emotions out on field. It was, however, not the case on Friday night.

During the coin toss for their IPL fixture against Delhi Daredevils (DD), the Chennai Super Kings captain burst into laughter.

The reason? Well, DD skipper Shreyas Iyer threw it miles away (excuse the hyperbole) from where they all were standing.

Consequently, match referee Manu Nayyar had to take a few steps – much to the amusement of the two captains and commentator Simon Doull – before determining Dhoni had won the toss.

Put in to bat first, DD managed to score 162-5 before restricting CSK to 128-6. This came as a consolation win for DD, who are already out of playoffs contention.

CSK, on the other hand, have qualified for the knockouts, having won eight off their 13 fixtures so far. They will look to push for a top-two spot when they take on Kings XI Punjab in their final league match on Sunday night.
