Ambati Rayudu had two contrasting IPL seasons in his career in the last couple of years. In 2018, it was all about him in the headlines whenever Chennai Super Kings won the game. When it comes to IPL 2019, he is nowhere in the picture, he has hardly scored runs for the team in the middle-order or at an opening slot.
Last year, he was a revelation for the team. From nowhere, he managed to get the place at opening slot for CSK, which he used to the perfection. Within a matter of time, he was called to play for the Indian National Cricket Team. But, this year, he made the mess of things to see himself out of the ICC World Cup 2019.

“Even my 6-year-old son could have hit this one for a boundary,” Slater said on mic. Slater’s fellow-commentator was quick to respond to the banter, saying: “With a height like yours, your son would surely.”
Coming to the match, it was Chennai Super Kings right throughout the game. Firstly, they started well on a batting wicket with the ball and then delivered the goods with the bat to seal the final spot in the Indian Premier League 2019. Now, they will lock horns against Mumbai for the final showdown.
Chasing a moderate total on the board, Faf du Plessis started things pretty brilliantly for the team after escaping initial run-out scare. He batted aggressively while Shane Watson played an anchor role. After the dismissal of Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson took the charge to whack it out for CSK in the crucial clash.
