Watch LIVE IPL Ambati Rayudu [72* off 27 balls] was on a rampage throughout the continuing encounter against the Mumbai Indians. He smoked his former franchise’s bowling attack, including their very best bowler in Jasprit Bumrah to all corners of the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
And, it wasn’t just the Mumbai Indians bowlers who came in for hammering; even the fridge put in the five-time champions dugout was not safe.
Rayudu, to smash Jasprit Bumrah to get a six, proceeded to smash the fridge glass.
It all happened during the last ball of the 17th over bowled by Jasprit Bumrah when the middle-order batsman obtained under a broad fullish length delivery from the pacer and thumped it over extra-cover for a six. In the process, the ball proceeded to smash the glass of the fridge positioned in MI’s dugout.
It was a brilliant inning from Ambati Rayudu through which he ensured that Chennai Super Kings didn’t lose the momentum after they’d lost three wickets within a space of six balls at the middle-overs.
Rayudu began his onslaught by beating Dhawan Kulkarni for successive sixes in the 16th over, and he followed that up by doing the same against Bumrah in the following over.
The right-hander smashed Trent Boult for a few sixes and a four to bring up a belligerent 20-ball 50, and he guaranteed that CSK ended on a high as he racked up a four and six off Dhawal Kulkarni on the last two deliveries of the innings to finish at a 27-ball 72.
