Dhoni would go on to win the toss after the initial delay due to the sandstorm and he decided to put RCB into bat.
Kohli hit a fifty and combined well with opening partner Devdutt Padikkal, who too hit a half-century, as RCB started the match well.
However, CSK fought back with a few wickets to peg back RCB, who could manage only 155/6 after their very bright start.
Dwayne Bravo was the pick of the CSK bowlers with figures of 3/24.
In response, CSK looked very much in control throughout their innings despite losing the occasional wicket.
Ruturaj Gaikwad scored 38 and fellow opener Faf du Plessis hit 31 as CSK started well. Moeen Ali's 23 and Ambati Rayudu's 32 put them on the front foot before Suresh Raina and Dhoni finished things off.
The win saw CSK climb to the top of the standings with 14 points, ahead of Delhi Capitals on net run-rate. Royal Challengers Bangalore remain third with 10 points.
