Watson dominated the SRH bowlers, smashing them to all parts of the ground. He hit 11 fours and eight sixes during his unbeaten knock of 117 off 57 deliveries.
Watson was looking at his menacing best and Suresh Raina was giving him good support. After his fellow opener Faf du Plessis’ departure in the fourth over, the partnership between Watson and Raina grew from strength to strength as the duo brought up a 117-run partnership that was instrumental in CSK securing their third IPL title. Owning to his whirlwind ton at the Wankhede, the 36-year-old became the second player after Wriddhiman Saha to score a century in an IPL final.
