The @ChennaiIPL never looked so much in control chasing a target this IPL & the @SunRisers never looked so much out of control defending a target. A ???? from @RayuduAmbati was always round the corner. Outstanding Innings cruising past 'the best bowling line-up' this year #CSKvSRH— Hemang Badani (@hemangkbadani) May 13, 2018
