This week’s Cricket World Player of the Week is Shane Watson, who single handedly won the IPL Final for the Chennai Super Kings.
Saksham Mishra our IPL match correspondent commented: “Chennai Super Kings (181-2) celebrated their comeback to IPL in grand style as they clinched the trophy beating SunRisers Hyderabad (178-6) by 8 wickets. Shane Watson’s (117*, Man of the Match) class shone through on the big night as he slammed an unbeaten century to take CSK to victory with 9 balls remaining.
The CSK innings began on a cautious note with Shane Watson soaking up a lot of deliveries. In hindsight, it seems a good call as it was a smart move to play out Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4-17-0) at a time when the ball was jagging around a bit.
However, the Aussie soon caught up and took the attack to the SRH bowlers. Once, Faf du Plessis (10) was caught and bowled by Sandeep Sharma (4-52-1) and Raina (32,24b) came in to bat, the two went hammer and tongs.
After Raina perished, Watson (117*, 57b) pummelled CSK to a victory, with Ambati Rayudu (16) hitting the winning boundary.”
An outstanding individual performance for the Chennai Super Kings by Shane Watson……. Congratulations and Congratulations to the Chennai Super Kings on their third IPL Title!!
