IPL 2019, Match 41: Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad- Watch: Shane Watson Falls Just 4 Runs Short of a Well Deserved Century
Former Australian all-rounder and currently playing for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, Shane Watson came into Match No 41 underconfident and needed to score some runs in order to retain his place in the playing XI. However, he proved why he was one of the finest hitters of the ball during his international tenure.
Coming out to open the innings with Faf du Plessis, Chennai Super Kings didn’t get off to a perfect start and lost the wicket of Faf du Plessis pretty cheaply. Shane Watson on the other hand was struggling as well as was not managing to find the middle of the bat. Chasing a score of 176, it was his terrific knock which took Chennai over the finishing line.
After wasting quite a few deliveries, Shane Watson connected a delivery from Sandeep Sharma which set the tone for the rest of the innings. From that point, Watson became unstoppable and kept on smashing the SRH bowlers all around the Chepauk. Suddenly all his timing came back and he was nearing his 2nd century for CSK.
However, at the score of 96, Shane Watson edged a short delivery from Bhuvneshwar Kumar straight to the wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow. He walked straight away and didn’t wait for the umpire’s decision. Jonny Bairstow completed a brilliant catch behind the stumps.
It was a terrific innings which took CSK very close to the victory target. Eventually, after a quiet couple of overs, it was Kedar Jadhav who struck a six in the final over to get the job done for the defending champions. https://www.iplt20.com/video/178458/m41-csk-vs-srh-shane-watson-wicket?tagNames=indian-premier-league
Earlier in the day, it was MS Dhoni who won the toss and put the visitors in. Courtesy a sensational knock of 84 of 49 deliveries by Manish Pandey, Hyderabad posted a competitive score of 175 in their allotted 20 overs.
David Warner continued his rich vein of form and smashed yet another half-century. SRH lost just 3 wickets and would have hoped for a bigger score in their 20 overs.
