\Watson failed to open his account in the first 10 balls of the innings, but there was no looking back once he got into the groove.

With Chennai needing 21 runs in 20 balls, the duo kept on playing freely and overhauled the target easily to become the only team to beat a side four times in a single season. But MS Dhoni's side, which was tailor-made for the turning track in Chennai, had to adjust and eventually came through finishing second in the group stage and eventually claiming the IPL 2018 title. But it's a challenge to get that bat-ball balance.

It was an all-South final in Mumbai where Chennai Super Kings were pitted against a formidable Sunrisers Hyderabad. Throughout the tournament, MS Dhoni has remained busy with daughter Ziva.

Watson has had longstanding hamstring problems which has worsened as the gruelling IPL season reached the finale.

Chennai, playing in its seventh final in the popular Twenty20 tournament, had previously won back-to-back titles in 2010 and 2011.

The European Commission, the bloc's executive, said it had started the process of renewing a sanctions-blocking measure this morning.

The New Zealander was disappointed that the team could not win the all important final after posting 178 for six.

He was supported by Yusuf Pathan who hit an unbeaten 45 off 25 balls, including four fours and two sixes. The CSK management had invested in a core team comprising skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (36), his deputy Suresh Raina (31), Aussie all-rounder Shane Watson (37), Harbhajan Singh (37), West Indian Dwayne Bravo (34) and Ambati Rayudu (32). "It was outstanding, they didn't give us opportunities, they hit it over the fence rather than to our man. Look, it is such a fine line, I know out there on the park it's an eight-wicket win but we all saw that there were moments of pressure where the game can change very quickly, and if you're able to pounce on those then that's when you take your opportunity". Shane Watson scored the second century of the IPL and took CSK home like a king with nine balls to spare.

"It is the fitness that really matters more than the age aspect", he said.

In pursuit of 179, CSK lost only two wickets and ensured Sunrisers' most unsafe bowlers - Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan - went wicketless. So that was the reasoning behind this year's team. "So what you tell yourselves is that they have to commit and try, but there's no point getting injured for a single", he added.
