The IPL fans are having a gala time today as they have a mouth-watering contest between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians on display. CSK and MI rivalry is one that fans have enjoyed over time and look forward to the clashes between the two most successful teams in the history of the Indian Premier League. In their clash today, Ambati Rayudu breaks the fridge as he hit a maximum off Jasprit Bumrah.
MI skipper Rohit Sharma opted to bowl after winning the toss in Delhi, but his decision backfired badly as the CSK batsmen ran riot against the MI bowlers. Though the opener Ruturaj Gaikwad fell cheaply, Moeen Ali and Faf du Plessis made sure they kept the momentum going and strike at a healthy run rate. A mini-collapse in the middle overs put CSK a little behind, however, Ambati Rayudu had other plans.
Ambati Rayudu’s six breaks fridge
The right-handed batsman came to all guns blazing as he smashed the MI bowlers left, right and center. Rayudu’s scintillating knock consisted of 4 boundaries and 7 handsome sixes. In the process, Ambati Rayudu breaks the fridge of the MI dugout with his maximum over cover off Jasprit Bumrah who had a pretty bad outing in the match today.
Chennai Super Kings amassed a massive score of 218 owing to Ambati Rayudu’s brisk inning. Prior to that, all-rounder Moeen Ali and Faf du Plessis set a perfect platform for the batsmen to come with a score of 50 and 58 respectively. However, it was Rayudu who stole all the limelight with his unbeaten inning of 72 off just 27 deliveries with a whopping strike rate of 266.67. On top of it, Ambati Rayudu breaks the fridge of the Mumbai dugout.
Chennai Super Kings looks in a dominant position after the end of the first inning, however, Mumbai Indians have the firepower to chase this target down. It will take the combined effort of all the MI batsmen to get to 219. Whatever the result, the fans are in for a treat as Mumbai Indians’ openers enter the ground.
