Mahendra Singh Dhoni was at the receiving end of yet another pitch invasion by a fan for the umpteenth time.

During the fifth game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) against Delhi, a fan invaded the pitch and touched Chennai skipper's feet. The fan was however taken away by the security officials.

Chennai registered a comfortable six-wicket victory against Delhi.
 
Shane Watson and Suresh Raina made batting look easy on a lifeless track. Shikhar Dhawan's painstaking half-century was the only silver lining in Delhi ' sub-par total of 147 for six which the defending champions overtook with two balls to spare.

He finished with figures 3/33 in four overs.

Meanwhile, for Delhi, Amit Mishra dismissed two set batsmen - Shane Watson and  Suresh Raina - to keep the game alive.
