Chennai Super Kings clinched their third IPL title after all-rounder Shane Watson single-handedly hammered SunRisers Hyderabad in the summit clash with a blazing hundred.
Reinstated into the IPL after a two-year ban, Dhoni-led side outplayed SunRisers Hyderabad by eight wickets.
Watson remained unbeaten on 117 off 57 balls. The Australian smashed 11 fours and eight sixes as CSK, chasing SunRisers Hyderabad's 179, raced home in 18.3 overs.
Chennai Super Kings beat the Kane Willamson-led side four times in as many games this season.
The MS Dhoni-captained side had entered a seventh IPL final and their stellar campaign ended with a record equalling third title, tying them up with Mumbai Indians.
