Watson ton takes Chennai Super Kings to third IPL title

Kolkata: Sunrisers Hyderabad spinners wrecked havoc on Kolkata Knight Riders batsmen as they reach 112/5 after 13 ...

At the auction, CSK were criticised for picking up nine players in their 30s including Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu, who eventually were instrumental in the team's triumph.

Even at the age of 36, MS Dhoni can give any young player a run for his money, not just with his sheer speed and agility on the field but also with the willow in his hand.

In pursuit of 179, CSK lost only two wickets and ensured Sunrisers' most risky bowlers - Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan - went wicketless. We found that the guys who get on a roll - the Rayudus, Watsons, Dhonis, Rainas - they take you deep in the tournament.

Watson's sensational knock ensured CSK chased down a challenging 179 easily.

An Asian person died in a flooded valley and an Omani national in a 4x4 was killed when his vehicle was swept away, Shanfari said. They laughed and shared plates by flashlight in a darkened ballroom, the cyclone's wind a tiresome roar behind their clatter.

Few things are more painful than watching an ageing athlete falter as they try to summon up the old magic and Yuvraj's fans have endured a shared agony over the course of this year's IPL.

"It's been a special season to be honest".

Watson said that he will now need a three-month rest to get over a hamstring injury that had made him question whether he would finish the seven-week IPL season.

The former New Zealand captain added: "There was a lot of emotion in the franchise because of what had happened".

Mike D'Antoni Says Chris Paul Is 'Doubtful' to Play Game 7
The Warriors , led by Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant , tried to force a Game 7 against the Rockets, led by James Harden . Golden State is one win from a fourth straight NBA Finals, headed back to Houston for Monday night's Game 7.

"After those first 10 balls, I was hoping to catch up", Watson said at the post-match presentation ceremony. The strike mostly remained with Watson and the Australian all-rounder took advantage beautifully by unleashing some ferocious shots.

"If you captain, you're playing, so that's something I enjoyed". During the celebration last night, Dhoni had his daughter Ziva for company.

Willamson had replaced the suspended David Warner as captain just ahead of the IPL.

Apart from Shane Watson's unbeaten 117, Williamson had words of praise for his bowlers too. "At the halfway stage, we definitely thought it was a competitive total".

The virus is spread after the fruit bat throw consumed fruits which are later eaten by animals or human. The natural host of the virus is believed to be fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family, Pteropus genus .

He did that and more, surviving against the excellent Bhuvneshwar Kumar - who bowled four wicketless overs, including a maiden, for just 17 runs - in the powerplay before blossoming against the less-experienced members of Hyderabad's attack. "You do have to congratulate CSK", he said. It's frustrating, because we played some really good cricket for the large part. Wasn't to be, and they certainly showed their experience. "A shame not to come across the line, but a lot of positives", he added.
