MI vs CSK: Rayudu smashes second-fastest 50 of period; Bumrah records his worst IPL bowling figures
Ambati Rayudu’s blistering 72 from 27 balls, laced with 4 fours and 7 sixes, butchered Mumbai Indians (MI) bowling into submitting while he helped Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to an enormous 218 for four in Indian Premier League (IPL) within Arun Jaitley Stadium on Saturday.
Rayudu’s attack left MI in a state of shock following the Rohit Sharma-led ensemble did actually have got back to the match with fast wickets.
The Andhra batsman pulverized the Mumbai team bowlers as they conceded 82 runs within the last five overs. Rayudu added an unbeaten 102 (off 49 balls) with all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja (22 off 22 balls).
Rayudu smashed the second-fastest IPL 2021 fifty while he took MI bowlers to your cleansers. He could be currently tied up with Deepak Hooda, who had in addition a 20-ball half-century in 2010. Prithvi Shaw is first on the number with an 18-ball fifty.
Rayudu is also now tied with MS Dhoni at second place in the menu of people who’ve struck fastest fifties when it comes to Chennai team. Raina appears first with a 16-ball half-century, accompanied by Rayudu and Dhoni (20 deliveries each). Sam Billings is next with a 21-ball half-century against Kolkata Knight Riders inside 2018 IPL edition.
Fastest half-centuries for CSK in IPL history:
- Suresh Raina (16 balls) vs Punjab in 2014
- MS Dhoni (20 balls) vs Mumbai in 2012
- Ambati Rayudu (20 balls) vs Mumbai in 2021*
CSK, which destroyed Ruturaj Gaikwad in the first over itself, got an excellent start by their particular international batsmen Faf Du Plessis (50 off 28 balls; 2x4s, 4x6s) and Moeen Ali (58 down 36 balls; 5x4s, 5x6s). Both included 108 runs in only over 10 overs.
Three fast wickets in 14 balls left CSK struggling at 116/4 at the end of 12 overs plus risk of getting bowled completely early.
But Rayudu had various other tips. He destroyed every bowler’s numbers and reputation, perhaps not sparing anyone including Jasprit Bumrah (1/56 in four overs). Dhawal Kulkarni was others bowler to drip runs (0/48 in four overs).
It absolutely was a forgettable day for Bumrah while he recorded their most expensive enchantment in the history of the IPL. Formerly, their worst IPL bowling figures had been 1/55 contrary to the Delhi outfit in 2015.
