"I just bowl according to how the captain wanted me to bowl and it is always beneficial taking advice from Mr Dhoni. He is an absolute legend and been helping me a lot this season, so actually the credit goes to him than myself," Tahir said during the post-match press conference.
"There are few things which I do not think personally and then he comes and tell me like what I need to bowl and which area and where the guy is looking to hit," he added.
Chennai then easily chased down the target and won the match by five wickets.
Man of the match, Tahir, took four wickets which helped him achieve the purple cap, a cap entitled to the player with most number of wickets in the ongoing season.
