White and Shikhar Dhawan (36) put on 68 runs for the second wicket, but the Chargers suffered a double blow, losing two wickets in 10 balls.
Dhawan was run out backing up as White's firm drive struck bowler Bravo and deflected on to the stumps. In the next over, Raina removed Kumar Sangakkara accepting a sharp return catch diving to his right in a brilliant effort.
White, in the company of Daniel Christian, continued unfazed and after a few quiet overs, unleashed a barrage of shots, as Chargers fought back, taking 18 off the 18th over bowled by Jadeja.
