Chennai Super Kings were not very consistent with the bat right through the tournament and their opener Shane Watson could not find his groove this season. However, CSK skipper MS Dhoni kept him in the side and the Australian played an absolute blinder in the final which almost won his side the title. Chennai Super Kings off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has now revealed how Watson batted through pain and a bloodied knee during the finals against Mumbai Indians in Hyderabad.
As per Harbhajan, the Chennai Super Kings opener received six stitches on his left leg after the match as he got injured while diving. Harbhajan wrote on his Instagram story and shared a picture as well.
Watson was on fire in the finals and almost pulled off the chase single-handedly with his innings of 80 off 59 balls for Chennai and batted till the penultimate ball of the match. However, despite this valiant effort, Lasith Malinga bowled a superb last over which saw Mumbai Indians clinch the title by 1 run.
