How good is Shane Watson? Just like classic wine, Watson is just getting better as he gets older. Another day, another Watson signature knock was the talk of the town. Playing Delhi Daredevils in their adopted home Pune, Chennai Superkings won by 13 runs courtesy of a Watson classic innings to maintain their position at the top of the table with 12 points.
Coming back to the CSK vs DD match highlights, leaking runs worse than a bucket with holes, Delhi’s bowling proved to be their demise yet again. Coming off a thumping win against the Kolkata Knightriders, Delhi travelled once again in high spirits as they looked to dethrone this year’s kings from their throne. With the batting coming good for the second time in a row, the bowlers failed to provide them the needed company to let down the Daredevils on the day.
Before we shed light on any happenings of the match we have to write laurels about Shane Watson’s innings. The Australian who over the years has been gradually written off by pundits has proved them all wrong by stamping his class all over the Indian Premier League this year with both the bat and ball. And yesterday saw him treat us all to another master-class from his willow. Opening the batting, he scored a breezy 78 off 40 balls which included 4 fours and 7 huge ones. Providing the perfect anchor to him was du Plessis who scored a run a ball 33 to ensure that Chennai got just the start they needed for. Coming in the death overs, Dhoni played the role he has played infinite times now to perfection. His tornado of an innings saw Chennai get past the 200 run mark with ease.
Chasing, hopes were high on the Delhi team who have showed everyone on more than one occasion that they have the capacity to score big. Rishabh Pant’s 75 and Shankar’s 54 were good but failed to take Delhi past a daunting total to see them remain static at the bottom of the table.
