Chennai Super Kings were not so consistent with the bat throughout the tournament and their opener Shane Watson cannot find his groove. However, MS Dhoni persisted with him and the Australian played an utter blinder in the final which almost won his side the title.
Chennai Super Kings off-spinner Harbhajan Singh have now revealed precisely how Watson batted through pain as well as a bloodied knee through the finals against Mumbai Indians in Hyderabad.
As per Harbhajan, the Chennai Super Kings opener received 6 stitches on his left leg after the match as he got seriously 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 have written on his Instagram story and shared a picture too.
Watson was on fire in the finals and almost ripped off the chasing single-handedly with his innings of 80 off 59 balls for Chennai and batted until the penultimate ball of the match. However, knowing this valiant efforts, 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 exclaimed after the match.Share this to your,
