Chennai’s batting performance when setting a target is highly unpredictable with a wide range of performances. This has led to 3 losses out of 6 games. Two of those losses came against Mumbai. Dhoni therefore prefers to bowl first where the win rate is much higher at 70%. Should they end up batting first, Dhoni will be very comfortable if they manage to touch 170 and given their past record, it is unpredictable but not impossible.
