It was a tough night for Chennai Super Kings in the final of the tournament at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. Despite the loss, the fans of Chennai Super Kings would be proud of the way their players displayed their skills on the field. One of them was Shane Watson, who batted brilliantly even when he was bleeding the blood.

Shane Watson, who made a desperate earlier in his innings suffered an injury on his knee. The blood started to bleed from his knees but the gritty Shane Watson showed his never-give-up attitude in the middle. He whacked those deliveries out of the park at crucial times of the match but unfortunately, finished on the wrong side of things.

Just when things looked in control for Mumbai, then came the brilliant spell of bowling from Imran Tahir. He dismissed Suryakumar Yadav. His wicket was quickly followed by the dismissal of Krunal Pandya when Shardul took a stunner of the catches in his own bowling.

However, the way Pollard batted in the middle helped Mumbai Indians to get something on the board. For Chennai Super Kings, Imran Tahir and Shardul Thakur was the pick of the bowlers while the rest of the bowlers delivered economical spells to restrict Mumbai for a paltry score in the middle.
