PV Sports Desk :CSK have won the IPL on their return. Shane Watson played the innings of his T20 life, maybe all his life, blitzing 117 from 57 balls. His last 109 runs came from 41 deliveries.
That’s it! Watson limps a single off Rashid to reach an astonishing century: 51 balls, seven fours, eight sixes. And he took 11 balls to get off the mark! The milestone liberates him sufficiently to hit Rashid Khan’s last two balls for four. CSK are going to win at a canter.
So much for playing Kumar with respect. Rayudu has just Leatherfaced a short ball over long off for six. A single brings Watson on strike, and he steers a single to move to 98 and keep the strike. CSK need 25 from 24 balls.
