Twitter Reactions: Fans react to Rayudu’s Sensational Knock despite being Injured

Chennai Super Kings suffered yet another defeat in the IPL 2022 today in the hands of Punjab Kings who returned to winning ways with this victory. With this defeat, CSK remains in the 9th position on the league table just above Mumbai Indians and their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs are all but gone. Talking about the points table further, Punjab Kings have climbed all the way to the 6th position on the table with this win and now they have 8 points in 8 matches and are very much in contention to qualify for the playoffs.

Chennai Super Kings won the toss and opted to bowl first and it was one of the rare days this season when a team that bowled first ended up losing the match and it was a sad thing indeed for CSK and its fans. Punjab Kings got a very strong start thanks to the incredible knock by Shikhar Dhawan who scored 88 off 59. Bhanuka Rajapaksa came in to replace captain Mayank Agarwal who departed early and he pretty much controlled the game alongside Dhawan and their partnership summed up to more than half of Punjab’s total score for the day. Liam Livingstone also played a wonderful cameo of 19 off 7 and PBKS were able to reach a total score of 187 runs.

Coming in to chase, Chennai Super Kings were off to a terrible start but Ambati Rayudu’s crucial knock of 78 off 39 runs gave them what they needed to go for the win. What made this knock even more special was the fact that Ambati Rayudu was injured and despite that he gave his all for his team and even almost won the match.

The fans showered their love for Ambati Rayudu after his incredible display against Punjab Kings tonight all over social media. Let us have a look at how some of them reacted.
