Details[edit]

Shane Watson single-handedly won it for CSK by hitting a magnificent century in the biggest game of the season. He made 117 runs.[2] He had scored a century in the earlier stage of the tournament. Ambati Rayudu hit the winning runs for CSK. SRH bowlers looked out of form, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan posing as a threat for CSK as all the other bowlers leaked runs heavily. With this win, CSK lifted the IPL trophy for the 3rd time in their seventh appeaaance in an IPL final.

SRH Innings[edit]

After a slow start, opening batsmanShikhar Dhawan tried to up the ante against the strict bowling. Uncapped Bowler and Former SRH player Karn Sharma was introduced into the attack in the 7th over. Both Dhawan and captain Williamson were keeping it slow and steady going for a boundary every over. SRH could only add 18 runs in the last 2 overs. SRH had posted a total of 178/6 which was just about par.[3]

CSK Innings[edit]

Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson opened the innings for CSK while Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled the first over for his team. The Super Kings lost du Plessis early but Watson and Raina did not give the Sunrisers any chance to bounce back with their 117-run partnership. Though Watson started slowly playing out Bhuvneshwar's overs, he pummeled the other Sunrisers bowlers to reach his second century in the IPL season. After Raina's departure, Rayudu joined hands with Watson to complete the chase for the Super Kings and helped them lift their third IPL trophy.[4]
