Dhoni was furious with a controversial call in the last over.
However, more drama followed when Stokes was adjudged to have delivered another no ball by Indian umpire Ulhas Gandhe only to be overruled by his Australian counterpart Bruce Oxenford at square leg. Criticising MS Dhoni for losing his cool and storming the field, Bishan Singh Bedi said that nobody is bigger than the game.
On Dhoni's shrewdness, Katich said his ploy to drop in-form Harbhajan Singh in favour of leftarm spinner Mitchell Santner who did well with the ball and hit a six off the last ball to seal the win, was a case in point.
The 37-year-old was fined 50% of his match fee.

This is not the same Liverpool by any means, but the weight of expectation can be a heavy weight indeed. Not featuring that day but ever present in the Chelsea squad were David Luiz and Eden Hazard .
But just as Rajasthan looked to be in the box seat for a much-needed victory over the league leaders, Stokes sent down a wide from the final ball of the game.
Suesh Raina (58) and bowling all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja (31) guided the visitors to a five-wicket victory on the back of an unbroken 41-run partnership with both experienced left-handers mixing caution with aggression against Kolkata's risky bowling attack. Because if he did this, tomorrow another captain can do the same. Chennai captain Dhoni was fined 50 percent of his match fee for an unprecedented confrontation with the umpires during their encounter against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur on Thursday. Then what is the value of an umpire? "So @virendersehwag has just said on @cricbuzz that MS Dhoni should have been given a 2 game ban for storming onto the pitch".
Sehwag is the first former India cricketer to demand suspension for his one-time teammate. Article 2.20 deals with "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game" and "is meant to cover all types of conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game and which is not specifically and adequately covered by the specific offences set out elsewhere" in the IPL's Code of Conduct. "I feel that everyone took responsibility and with each game, our thought process is becoming clearer, and our communication is also improving, which is a great sign for the team", Iyer added.
Echoing Slater, former India wicketkeeper Deep Dasgupta said: "He's got every right to go and speak to the fourth umpire, he's got every right to speak to the match referee. but walking in while the game is on (is wrong)".
