IPL 2018 Final: CSK makes a CHAMPION comeback with Watson's brilliant century

IPL 2018 Live Score SRH vs KKR

Chennai made it three wins from three over Sunrisers in Tuesday's first qualifier - Rayudu failed, falling for a golden duck, as Super Kings sunk to 66-6 chasing a target of 140, but Faf du Plessis's 67 not out steered Super Kings into their seventh IPL final with five balls in the bank.

The legendary leg-spinner tweeted ahead of the final between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), and predicted that the former will be the league champions for the third time.

With Chennai needing 21 runs in 20 balls, the duo kept on playing freely and overhauled the target easily to become the only team to beat a side four times in a single season.

Watson clubbed 117 not out off just 57 balls as CSK chased down Hyderabad's 178 with nine balls to spare. He hit eight sixes and seven fours to reach the triple figure mark.

Meanwhile, Man of the Match Watson, who was back to his brutal best as his scintillating unbeaten 117 run-knock was the key behind Chennai's IPL title, termed the season as a "special" one for him. While Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Kane Williamson lead the batting attack of SRH, players like Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan have contributed well to the team. Fun fact: Out of the six games that SRH have lost in this season's IPL 2018, CSK has beaten them thrice. Brathwaite, who fell in the final delivery of Hyderabad's innings, chipped in with a valuable 21 runs off 11 balls.

In the bowling department, Warne has picked Afghanistan sensation Rashid Khan alongside current Purple cap holder Andrew Tye and then chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah. "No one retires at the age of 30!" said the 52-year-old actor. The victor will join Mumbai Indians who became the first team to have won the title three times.

"We talked a lot about age but what matters is the fitness".

If you ask most captains, they want players who move well on the field.

The 19-year-old hit an unbeaten 34 off 10 balls as his side posted 174-7 after being put in to bat at Eden Gardens.

Moreover, looking at the team, it seems Dhoni will be captaining the side. "It's good to have our players available for selection".

"So what you tell yourself is that they have to commit and try, but there´s no point getting injured for a single".
