MS Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings captain, could be sidelined for a few days after picking up an injury during his team's victory against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens on Tuesday. Suresh Raina has been named captain in his absence.

Dhoni was hit on the arm by a rising delivery from Shane Bond during Chennai's innings but continued batting, scoring an unbeaten 66 off 33 balls to lead his team to a match-winning 164. He kept wickets as well during Kolkata's unsuccessful chase but was seen wearing an ice pack during the post-match presentation ceremony.

"Dhoni has been advised rest for a few days. The physio will assess him again on March 21 in Chennai and take a call on his return," a team official confirmed.

Chennai will face Delhi Daredevils in their away match on March 19.
