Meanwhile, Watson bagged the Man of the match for his 96 off 53 balls in a 176 chase.
“I think you can give individuals some games and the team gives them the rest. Watson has been a matchwinner for us. He has been batting well in the nets. Whatever small innings he played so far, he was middling them well although he did struggle a bit. This is the time when you need to back them. The management’s thinking was to give him as many games as possible. And the team winning also means that a player gets more games than he would actually get,” said Dhoni.
CSK are back at the top of the points table with the win. They have now become the first team to make it to the playoffs.
