Rayudu blitz takes Chennai to highest tally against Mumbai

Kolkata: It was a superb display of batting by the Chennai Super Kings as they rode for half centuries by Faf du Plessis (50), Moeen Ali (58) and a ruthless 72 on 27 balls by Ambati Rayudu to reach a colossal total of 218 for four. against the Indians of Mumbai in New Delhi.

This is the highest total ever for the yellow jerseys against Mumbai, two of the most decorated sides in IPL history.

When Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma decided to race after winning the draw he might have shown confidence in his big lineup for a crack at a total of around 180 and up. However, they’ll need an extraordinary effort here to make it a game.

Rayudu, coming in at number five, showed some extraordinary strikes – attacking Jasprit Bumrah over and over again to finish with seven sixes and four limits up his innings.

Mumbai and Chennai renew old rivalry on new ground

Kolkata: A clash between the Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings has been one of the traditional rivalries in IPL history – and it will be no different when they face off at the neutral stadium site Arun Jaitley in New Delhi today.

It will be interesting to see if the current champions, in fourth place in the table after their seven-wicket win over the Rajasthan Royals on Thursday, can build on the latest win which saw them chasing a normal target on a decent hitting surface. . Kock opener Quinton’s return to form has been encouraging for Mumbai Paltan, although a few question marks linger over their middle order.

Chennai looked at the fuller side halfway through, with Dhoni’s captain always being an added bonus for them. With the former Kotla box office doing a bit for the couturiers, Mumbai’s best chance lies in the pursuit after limiting rivals with the Trent Boult-Jasprit Bumrah combination making early inroads.

Sure, we have a contest cracker in our hands.
