After a disappointing batting performance by the batsmen of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) against the Delhi Daredevils (DD) they needed to up their standards against Sunrisers Hyderabd (SRH) and openers had to come to the party and they did rightly so.

Chennai set mammoth target of 210 for Sunrisers to score and inexperienced middle orders of the Sunrisers couldn’t keep up with the run rate and crumbled under pressure eventually. This match has also raised a question on the batting of Sunrisers as they lack experience after the openers and this adds more responsibility on the openers – David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan.

However when such a huge score is scored by a team, records are bound to be made and in this article we bring you all the important numbers from the encounter of Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad:

1) McCullum or Super Man: Brendon McCullum played his 199th T20 match of his career and has 4th highest number of runs, 3rd highest number of 4s and 6s in the World.

S Sreesanth – 23

Amit Mishra – 18

5) First in season 8: Brendon McCullum scored the first century of IPL season 8, he had scored the first century of 1st season of IPL too.
