#1 Ambati Rayudu’s innings
Ambati Rayudu, who was playing only his second match of the season, came out to bat at No.4 and was lucky to survive on 10 after Robin Uthappa dropped him off Sunil Narine. But in no time, he blazed his way to a fifty in 32 balls with a lip-smacking six over backward square leg.
He was soon joined by Pollard, who joined the six-hitting party soon and ripped through the KKR bowlers. Rayudu, who hit Kuldeep Yadav for 10 runs in the previous three balls, was outfoxed by the Chinaman bowler.
He came dancing down the track, could not read Kuldeep’s googly and got his stumps rattled by Robin Uthappa. But, he had caused enough damage before that as he departed for a well made 63 off 37 balls.
