"The reason we loved to bowl was because of the dew factor. I felt the first few overs were brilliant from our bowlers," Dhoni said at the presentation ceremony after his side defeated Mumbai Indians by six wickets.

Replying to the Mumbai team's 183/7, Chenai clinched the issue by reaching 189/4 in 16.4 overs.

Dhoni on Friday said he was more worried about his team's bowling because it' s a good wicket.

However, pacer Ashish Nehra picked up wickets in his first two overs, while his opening partner Ishwar Pandey claimed success in his second.

Dhoni said CSK was not surprised at the Mumbai Indians promoting harbhajan Singh, who played a cracker of an innings against the Kings XI Punjab last wee.

"We don't really get surprised if the opposition promotes someone  up the order. Bhajji batted well in the last game and maybe that's why they promoted him. Our plan was to bowl dot balls at him," he said.

Having started off the high profile league on the right note, Dhoni said he just wanted the boys to stay in a positive frame of mind.
