Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) Sam Billings has lauded Shane Watson for his stunning match-winning knock to guide the Men in Yellow to a massive 64 runs win over Rajasthan Royals in an IPL 2018 match.
At Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Friday (20 April), Watson spectacularly opened the innings for CSK, as he played an outstanding knock of 106 off 57 balls, in which the all-rounder hit 9 fours and 6 out of the park. He also got well support from Suresh Raina at No.3, hammering 46 off 29 deliveries to help the CSK to make a stunning return to the winning mode in the IPL 2018.
Meanwhile, CSK brilliantly defended 204 in Pune, and even they bowled RR out at just 18.3 overs with the collective effort from the bowling unit here.
Watson’s knock was the second hundred of the IPL 2018 after Kings XI Punjab’s (KXIP) Chris Gayle hit the ton (104 off 63 deliveries) against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Mohali on (19 April).
Watson, who adjudged the man of the match for his terrific knock in Pune, was hailed by everyone for his spectacular innings against the RR on the social media.

He wrote, “Giiiddy upppp what a knock @ShaneRWatson33 & great to have @ImRaina back as well! Class win @ChennaiIPL ; next stop Hyderabad! ???? #WhistlePodu ????????”
