Rayudu rampant as Super Kings thump Sunrisers

Dhinchak Pooja and MS Dhoni

"Ambati Rayudu is batting like a dream, wherever he's asked to bat in the order".

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings will be played at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium located in Pune.

Rayudu, who has been in great touch this season, remained not out on exactly 100 which he made from 62 balls with the help of seven fours and seven sixes as CSK chased down the target of 180 with one over to spare. All told, he took 31 runs off 14 balls from Kaul at a strike-rate of 221.42 and a control percentage of 85. Despite those two quick wickets, Sunrisers managed to score 49 runs in the last 5 overs to finish with a competitive total on board. The hosts went on to hammer the visiting bowlers as the openers lifted Chennai to 93 runs at the end of 10 overs.

On the other hand, New Zealand Skipper Kane Williamson has kept the Sunrisers'command well.

So far, batsmen are the major reason behind Chennai's success as they have been in top form this season.

On a track where batting looked, rather easy in the second innings, CSK overhauled a stiff target of 180 runs easily and still had 6 balls to spare. Though CSK narrowly lost the match by four runs, Dhoni ended up scoring an unbeaten 79 runs in 44 deliveries, which included five sixes. In their last encounter, Hyderabad hammered Delhi Daredevils by nine wickets while chasing a massive total of 188 runs.

Earlier, opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan and captain Kane Williamson continued their top form this season as the two batsmen struck fluent half centuries to take Sunrisers to 179 for 4 after being sent in to bat.

Asked about the performance of his bowlers, Fleming said, "Yes, it could have been better, they could have been more accurate". Even as his teammates gave away runs at well over 7.5 an over, Chahar finished his quota at a miserly 4 runs an over. With Chennai struggling to break the partnership, it was Dwayne Bravo who came with the much-needed breakthrough in the 16th over. While Thakur, who had impressive figures of 1/22 in his four overs against Rajasthan Royals, is set to feature in the playing XI against Sunrisers Hyderabad (CSK vs SRH), Willey's inclusion look hard as the English pacer leaked 47 runs bagging a wicket. If that would be the case in this game as well, then it would be a treat to watch out for Rashid Khan and Shakib Al Hasan as they are the core of the best bowling line up in this year's IPL.

For Chennai, Thakur bagged a couple of wickets conceding 32 runs while Bravo and Chahar settled for one wicket each.
