Coulter-Nile is playing his first global match since June previous year having battled a series of serious injuries.
India were rattled by Nathan Coulter-Nile's incredible line and length, and the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli and Manish Pandey fell prey to his accurate spell.
Having first removed Rahane, who edged behind for five, Coulter-Nile lured Kohli into an uppish drive outside the off stump. It was memorable outing as Dhoni smashed three consecutive sixes and the fans loved it.
He was later undone by Zamapa in the 41 st over after the right-hander tried to go against the spin and only managed to top edge the ball and give a sitter to James Faulkner at short-third man. Pandya and Dhoni stitched a partnership of 118 runs for the sixth wicket.
The former India captain had garnered a great deal of popularity in the Tamil Nadu capital, after his eight-season stint with the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League.
Pandya played a couple of cheeky ramp shots but otherwise was largely playing a safe game till Adam Zampa came to bowl the 36th over.
The teams: India: Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli (captain), Manish Pandey, M.S. Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah.
