Chennai Super Kings continue to rock in this Champions League and today they picked up their second consecutive big win over their opponents. Wayamba were a sorry match in both the batting and the bowling departments to lose the contest by a huge margin of 97 runs at the SuperSport Park in Centurion. The Lankan domestic side had realistically lost the match once they were pounded for as many as 200 runs in 20 overs by the Chennai Super Kings!

It was a massive 137-run stand for the second wicket between Murali Vijay (68 from 46 balls with 9 fours and a six) and left handed sensation - Suresh Raina (87 from 44 balls with 6 fours and 6 sixes) that had powered CSK to 200 for 3! The irony was that CSK had won the toss and were asked to bat first by Jehan Mubarak which totally backfired.

CSK was red hot on the field as well with some fine catches being taken and the bowlers sticking to their lines and lengths efficiently. After the early damage done by Albie Morkel's three wickets, off spinner R Ashwin wrapped up things with his 4-0-18-4. Wayamba folded to 103 all out in 17.1 overs. Raina got the Man of the Match for his blistering innings.
