Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and England cricketer Sam Billings has joined his national teammate Mark Wood in celebration of Ambati Rayudu’s magnificent innings against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
Rayudu ill-treated the quality SRH bowlers to score his maiden T20 hundred. He scored it in just 62 balls that too while chasing a target of 180.
The veteran received applause from everyone; his captain MS Dhoni, coach Stephen Fleming, fans, but the most special one was from Mark Wood, who was picked in CSK side this year but had to leave for national duty mid-way in the tournament. He is preparing for the upcoming series against Pakistan and playing county cricket.
Wood might not be with the men in yellow anymore, but the 28-year-old didn’t miss CSK’s match and particularly Rayudu’s heroic 100.
The English pacer created a chant and made his Durham teammates sing along for Rayudu which goes like this: “When I see Chennai, I know I’m on my way. I just can’t get enough, just can’t get enough…all the things you do to me and all the things you say, I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough. Because when you cut and drive I just can’t get enough of Du Du Du Du Du Du…Ambati Rayudu.”
He was joined by another Englishmen Billings, who is in India with the same franchise. The right-handed batsman was lucky to witness Rayudu’s innings from close. But what did he enjoy the most? The 100 by his CSK mate or Wood’s epic tribute for the CSKian? It’s tough to guess seeing the video shared by Chennai Super Kings’ official Twitter account.
“#ThambiSamB just can’t get enough of ‘Am-ba-ti-Raai-du’ by #BrotherMark @MAWood33 and mates. @sambillings @RayuduAmbati #whistlepodu #yellove,” the caption read.
