In the 29th league match of the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL 2022 being played at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, Chennai Super Kings batsman Ambati Rayudu’s bat could not withstand the pace of fast bowler Lockie Ferguson of Gujarat Titans team. Rayudu’s bat got blown off Ferguson’s ball. After this Ambati Rayudu had to change his bat.
Actually, the third ball of the 13th over of Chennai Super Kings’ innings, Lockie Ferguson bowled a yorker, which Ambati Rayudu tried to hit, but the ball hit the lower end of the bat and one part of the bat was blown off. Ferguson himself picked up the broken part of the bat and gave it to Ambati Rayudu and he ordered a new bat. However, the new bat did not prove to be very effective.
Right-handed batsman Ambati Rayudu was dismissed for a personal score of 46 runs in 31 balls with 4 fours and 2 sixes and missed his 22nd half-century in the IPL, but his strikerate in this innings was 148.39. He could not get much runs in the last few balls. However, he put Chennai Super Kings in a good position as the team took the first two setbacks early.
