IPL 2018 Final: MS Dhoni's team Chennai Super Kings earned their third Indian Premier League title after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad

MS Dhoni’s team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bagged their third Indian Premier League title after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a one-sided battle at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on May 27.

Shane Watson led from the front as he smashed an unbeaten century to guide his team to a memorable victory. Watson, who started CSK’s chase with 6 dot balls during the first over, scored an unbeaten 117 off just 57 balls, including 11 fours and 8 sixes.

Chasing 179 for victory, CSK reached the target with 9 balls to spare.

“Hats off to Shane Watson. He comes and gets 117 not out in the final. It’s frustrating, but CSK were deserved winners. They certainly showed their experience,” losing captain Kane Williamson said after the match.

SRH coach Tom Moody also praised Shane Watson for his memorable innings in IPL. He said: “I saw something special tonight. Shane Watson’s innings was just out of the box; they needed something special and that’s what Watson provided.”

Meanwhile, MS Dhoni put “fitness” ahead of any other factor when talking about the team’s success. MSD opined that its the fitness of players which matters the most.

“We talked a lot about age, but what’s more important is the fitness. Rayudu, at 33, it doesn’t really matter. That’s what more matters than age,” Dhoni said after the match.
