Champions League 2010. Day.6, Match.9. Chennai Super Kings vs Wayamba SL


CSK 200 for 3 beat Wayamba SL 103 all out in 17.1 overs, by a massive margin of 97 runs.

The Super Sport Park at Centurion offered a batting beauty with short boundaries. Wayamba won the toss and surprisingly elected to bowl, which suited Dhoni. CSK finished with 200 for 3 in a whirlwind fashion throughout the twenty overs, without taking undue risks. CSK think tank seem to have worked overtime in formulating a game plan. Hayden was of colour again and plodded for 18 deliveries for a poor 10.

Murali Vijay 68 of 46 and Suresh Raina 87 of 44, were involved in a match winning partnership of 137 runs in 12 overs. Both fell one after the at 180 in the 18th over. Dhoni and Morkel added 20 in the last two to finish at 200 for 3. Walagedera 2 for 47 and Mendis 1 for 45 shared the wickets to fall.

Wayamba was never in the game. They lost wickets regularly and folded to a miserly 103 all out. Morkel 3 for 23 and Ashwin 4 for 18 were at their best. Bollinger, Balaji and Murali supported superbly and shared a wicket apiece.

CSK with 2 on2 are well placed for semifinal berth. Wayamba with 2 loses out of 2 are more or less out of the next stage. However you never know. This is T20.
