Top 5 innings by Sachin Tedulkar in IPL history
#4 72 vs Chennai Super Kings, 2010
The Indians hosted CSK at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai for the 21st match of the third season and the visitors scored a massive 180 in their first innings that consisted of half-centuries from Suresh Raina and S Badrinath.
Chasing a tough target, Tendulkar started off with a crisp boundary through the covers and the crowd knew they were in for something special. He handled the spin duo of Muttiah Muralitharan beautifully and guided the run chase.
When he got out in the 19th over, MI needed just 9 from 10 balls. He made 72 runs off 52 balls that included 8 fours and a six. It was a knock that guaranteed no hiccups despite wickets falling at the other end. Ultimately, MI won the match by 5 wickets with 6 balls remaining.
