But those who watched the match will know that Delhi were nowhere in the match, despite having all the makings of a thriller.
A short ball that swayed to Dhoni's leg-side was missed by the batsman, as a quick throw back to the bowler Trent Boult from gloveman Rishabh Pant put Delhi in a position to break the stubborn stand.
Vijay Shankar added unbeaten 54 runs with his willow.
RUN OUT! Iyer pushes one towards cover, makes the run but there is frightful miscommunication with Pant at the other end.
Watson, who hit a hundred earlier in the tournament, got going by depositing Liam Plunkett for two sixes in the fifth over that leaked 20 runs.
Former Australian all-rounder, Shane Watson's career was at the crossroads before the IPL began. While the rest of the bowlers struggled to contain the runs, Khan gave away just 28 runs from his four overs.
The head to head stats favours CSK with 11 wins, while DD have won 5 games in 16 matches that they have faced each other. With the new ball at the other end, KM Asif, an MRF Pace Foundation trainee who impressed in the domestic T20s for Kerala with raw pace, also cranked it upwards of 140 clicks. With the explosive batting line up that CSK possess and their ability to chase down nearly anything, it is a given that teams winning the toss would like not to give them this advantage.
Suresh Raina was bowled by Glenn Maxwell (1-5) in the next over and Amit Mishra (1-30) ended Watson's stay with a little over six overs remaining but the runs kept coming. Delhi is still playing an outdated brand of cricket and the team has let down people of Delhi time and again despite acquiring big names.
The inventive Rayudu extended a commanding lead in the 2018 tournament's highest run-scoring ranks, finishing on an entertaining 41 from 24, while Dhoni struck this season's second longest six - 108 metres - en route to an authoritative 51 off 22.
Chasing 168, Duminy came to bat at number three after the wicket of Ishan Kishan in the first over. His tornado of an innings saw Chennai get past the 200 run mark easily. Apart from an ugly full toss off the last ball that Dhoni sent soaring into the stands, he bowled a neat mix of yorkers and speedy low full tosses to keep the batsman in check.
Pune:Chennai Super Kings skipper M.S. Dhoni said his back was "quite bad", but nothing much he could do because of a lack of resting period in the IPL. At one stage, a last-over six that earned Shankar a 28-ball fifty, reduced the equation to 19 off four, but all it managed to do was reduce Daredevils' margin of defeat.
