In the 46th game of the Indian Premier League of the season 2022, Chennai Super Kings beat SunRisers Hyderabad by 13 runs at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Sunday. Mukesh Choudhary’s four-wicket haul has helped Kings to control Sunrisers Hyderabad to 189 runs for six wickets in 20 overs. In the beginning, Chennai posted the target of 202 runs for two wickets in 20 overs.
The replacement of the captain in the middle of the tournament brought the desired results as MS dhoni is the captain now. Ruturaj Gaikwad smashed 99 runs off 57 balls. While Devon Convoy played the undefeated knock of 85 runs off 55 balls. In addition, T Natanjan took these two for Sunrisers Hyderabad. After this win, Chennai continued to remain in 9th place at the point table with six points. Chennai has played nine matches out of which they won 3 matches and lost 6 matches, as Mahi is back so it would be interesting to see that the kings will be back in their form.
Kane Williamson gets four over from Aiden and Shashank Singh on a day when a bowler was at the receiving end of the Gaikwad and Conway’s. Faced with a hard asking rate, Sunrisers were delayed as Mukesh Choudhry scored 46 runs over six wickets concerning their chase.
Meanwhile, Shivam Dube and Ambati Rayudu have dazzling batting performances for Chennai Super Kings this season, but the issue rests in the top-order. The Orange Cap holder of 2021, Ruturaj Gaikwad recorded at a standard of just 17 is severely concerning for the opponent team. The West Indies bowlers Dwayne Bravo and Maheesh Theekshana have paced brilliantly, but the Indian bowlers need to work consistently. In a turnabout, Ravindra Jadeja has relinquished the captaincy back to MS Dhoni to focus on his game. It’s good news for Dhoni Fans, as Dhoni will be directing the Men in Yellow again in the remaining matches of the League.
