McCullum blasts unbeaten 100 to help CSK post 209/4 vs SRH

Chennai, April 11: New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum continued his rich World Cup form smashing his second Indian Super League (IPL) century (56-ball 100 not out) to help Chennai Super Kings (CSK) post a massive 209/4 against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a league stage match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium here on Saturday.

CSK skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat and his decision was fully backed by McCullum who batted throughout the innings, bludgeoning seven fours and nine massive over boundaries.

He put on a 75-run opening wicket stand with West Indian Dwayne Smith (27) and followed it up with a 60-run second-wicket partnership with newly married Suresh Raina (14).

That set up a strong platform for CSK to post a strong total and the McCullum-Dhoni third-wicket stand capitalised on it superbly, putting on a 63-run partnership.

Dhoni took over the mantle of big-hitting from McCullum from there and contributed 53 runs of the third-wicket stand, hitting four boundaries and as many sixes.
