CHENNAI – Murali Vijay smashed the ongoing Indian Premier League’s fastest century to propel Chennai Super Kings into the final for the fourth time in five years.
CSK has won the IPL for the past two years.
Vijay, who was run out on the last ball of the innings, hit 13 fours and four sixes in his brilliant innings. He also became the first Indian player to score two centuries in the IPL.
Vijay was well-supported by Michael Hussey who contributed with 20 off 22 balls before Aaron had the Aussie caught behind by Naman Ojha.
Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni smashed 23 off 10 balls, while West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo remained unbeaten on 33 off 12 with the help of three fours and two sixes.
CSK’s total was also the highest in this edition of the league.
Delhi skipper Virender Sehwag won the toss and chose to field. His team also surprisingly left out pace spearhead, South African Morne Morkel, who is also the highest wicket-taker in the current IPL.
