Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum are smashing the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 encounter of the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. In nine overs, Chennai are 72 for no loss as they are chasing 146.
Amit Mishra came on to bowl after the powerplay got over. He was on 99 IPL wickets then, needing that one for the three-figure mark. Later Ishant Sharma came on and Smith merely lofted him over long-on for a six. And the last ball of the over was carted over square-leg for a six. In the ninth over, Mishra was pulled with disdain over square-leg for a four by McCullum.
Earlier, Dhawan had won the toss and chosen to bat first on the Sharjah wicket that is known to be conducive for batting. Hyderabad made one change to their line-up, in view of strengthening their bowling attack. Ishant Sharma came in to replace Naman Ojha. Aaron Finch scored 44 and then later some late surge helped Hyderabad score 145.
