His highest score was 117 not out in the finals of the 2018 edition against SunRisers Hyderabad.
Watson is an important member of the CSK team which has been left depleted after the pull out of senior players Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh.
CSK was forced to delay its training plan after completing the six-day quarantine after Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad tested positive last week along with 11 members of the contingent.
The 13th IPL is scheduled be held from September 19 to November 10 across three venues Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah.
