Shane Watson has earned respect after his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) teammate Harbhajan Singh revealed how he battled in the middle despite a bleeding knee.

Watson scored highest runs for CSK, 80, in the final but he couldn't win the match for them as Mumbai Indians clinched a 1-run victory.

Harbhajan posted a picture of Watson on his Instagram where he told fans about his injury. “Can you guys see the blood on his knee…he got 6 stitches after the game..got injured while diving but continue to bat without telling anyone. That’s our @srwatson33 Almost pulled it off for us last night,” Harbhajan’s Instagram story read.

Since then, fans are saluting the Aussie for his effort in high pain. Watson was eventually run-out in the last over which was the major turning point in the match.

Here are the tweets from fans applauding Watson's lion-heart show:
