Watson was on fire in the finals and almost pulled off the chase single-handedly with his innings of 80 off 59 balls for Chennai.

 

Chennai Super Kings were not very consistent with the bat right through the tournament and their opener Shane Watson could not find his groove. However, MS Dhoni persisted with him and the Australian played an absolute blinder in the final which almost won his side the title.
 
Chennai Super Kings off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has now revealed how Watson batted through pain and a bloodied knee during the finals against Mumbai Indians in Hyderabad.
 
As per Harbhajan, the Chennai Super Kings opener received six stitches on his left leg after the match as he got injured while diving.
 
“Can you guys see the blood on his knee.. He got 6 stitches after the game..Got injured while diving but continue to bat without telling anyone,” Harbhajan wrote on his Instagram story and shared a picture as well.
 
 
Watson was on fire in the finals and almost pulled off the chase single-handedly with his innings of 80 off 59 balls for Chennai and batted till the penultimate ball of the match. However, despite this valiant effort, Lasith Malinga bowled a superb last over which saw Mumbai Indians clinch the title by 1 run.
 
“We will give some time for dust to settle down. I think if you win one title and reach the final next time, you have had good two years. We do understand that we are an ageing team. So at some point, we just have to look at recreating the side, obviously MS as well,” CSK Stephen Fleming said after the match.
