Shane Watson smashed an unbeaten 117 off just 57 balls to power Chennai Super Kings to a eight-wicket win over SunRisers Hyderabad in the IPL 2018 final at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday night. This was CSK's third IPL title and came rather easily against SRH -- a team that finished top of the standings after the league stage. The Australian all-rounder started his innings slugglishly with 10 dot balls but upped the ante after the powerplay. Captain Kane Williamson (47) and Yusuf Pathan (45 not out) had helped SRH post a competitive 178 for six but it proved no match for CSK as the MS Dhoni-led team overhauled the target with nine balls to spare.
