IPL 2018 Final: CSK makes a CHAMPION comeback with Watson's brilliant century

SRH look to Rashid for IPL final flourish

The spectacular flourish that became his trademark has been replaced by tentative jabs at the ball, or fatal pre-determined shots. Led by MS Dhoni, CSK defied all odds and clinched their third championship on Sunday, beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in emphatic fashion in the final at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. "We had to take care of the resources and to make sure that when we come to the business end of the tournament, the best 11 is available for selection", Dhoni said.

Apart from Shane Watson's unbeaten 117, Williamson had words of praise for his bowlers too.

It was a flawless comeback for Chennai after a two-year ban due to corruption charges.

Dhoni has been one of the key reasons behind Chennai Super Kings' triumph this season.

Should they win that match and return to the Premier League, Terry will have the option of renewing his deal for 12 months. Worried Andrew is now hoping stadium bosses will accept the remains as genuine.

The New Zealander was disappointed that the team could not win the all important final after posting 178 for six.

The 27-year-old Williamson, a last minute replacement for scandal-tainted David Warner as captain, has been an impressive leader, amassing 735 runs including eight half centuries in 17 matches.

Yusuf Pathan made a brisk 45 from just 25 balls, but Hyderabad's total ultimately proved well short, Watson putting them to the sword after a watchful start.

While Du Plessis couldn't emulate his previous performance but it was his opening partner Watson who stuck around for a while. "It was outstanding, they didn't give us opportunities, they hit it over the fence rather than to our man. Look, it is such a fine line, I know out there on the park it's an eight-wicket win but we all saw that there were moments of pressure where the game can change very quickly, and if you're able to pounce on those then that's when you take your opportunity".

At the auction, CSK were criticised for picking up nine players in their 30s including Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu, who eventually were instrumental in the team's triumph.

In pursuit of 179, CSK lost only two wickets and ensured Sunrisers' most risky bowlers - Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan - went wicketless.

"We talked a lot about age but what matters is the fitness". It doesn't matter which year a player is born in, whether you are 19 or 20 - you have to be agile. "So what you tell yourselves is that they have to commit and try, but there's no point getting injured for a single", he added.

The winners of the final were guaranteed a minimum $4 million in prize money.
