(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) One-down batsman rayudu whose previous highest score this season was 48 made 59 with four sixes and two fours in 43 balls before he was out in the 19th over.

a match-winning knock of 57 runs off 51 balls by dwayne smith aided by ravichandran ashwin’s three for 30 helped chennai super kings defeat defending champions mumbai indians by four wickets at the wankhede stadium on saturday.

set a target of 158 super kings made 160 for six with three balls to spare. earlier ambati rayudu notched up his first half century of the season as mumbai indians battled their way to 157 for 6.

one-down batsman rayudu whose previous highest score this season was 48 made 59 with four sixes and two fours in 43 balls before he was out in the 19th over.

rayudu’s stand of 61 in 54 balls with opener lendl simmons (38) playing his first game after being inducted into the squad in place of injured jalaj saxena and replacing ben dunk in the eleven laid the platform after the early loss of opener chidambaram gautam for 9 in the third over.

towards the end left-hander corey anderson (18 not out) and aditya tare (9) put on 28 runs in 12 balls to give the total some respectability after mumbai were asked to bat first. mumbai made a decent start despite losing opener gautam cheaply. the home team scored on 42 for 1 in the powerplay period of six overs.

simmons carted fellow west indian samuel badree for two sixes over in the sixth over.

but mumbai scoring rate slumped later as they could add only 12 runs in the next three overs. the hosts accounted for 33 dot balls in the first nine overs at the end of which the score read 54 for 1. it became 57 for 1 after 10 overs.

rayudu escaped being caught when mithun manhas made a mess of a chance at deep extra cover off ravindra jadeja and then celebrated it by slog-sweeping the left-arm spinner for a six over midwicket.

the 18th over bowled by ashwin his last was dramatic as it produced two wickets — of mumbai skipper rohit and kieron pollard — in four balls besides a six over long on by rayudu.

rohit and pollard were both caught in deep mid wicket by suresh raina to help ashwin finish with 3-30. rayudu fell the next over off mohit and mumbai were struggling at 129 for 5.
