Shane Watson could not score a single run off the first 10 balls he faced in the match. After that, there was no looking back. He broke the shackles with a four and then it started raining boundaries at the Wankhede stadium.

Even then, the damage done by that lean run in the powerplay was telling and the difference between their run rate and what was required remained a significant number. That all changed in the 13th over in which Watson slammed a four and a hat-trick of sixes off Sandeep Sharma. Suresh Raina squared that over off with a four. 27 runs off that single over and CSK’s required run rate was almost cut by half.

Raina was had to depart after that but Watson played through despite dealing with an injury. He ended the innings with an unbeaten 117 off 57 balls to power CSK to a third IPL title.

Here’s how the Twitter world reacted to CSK’s win:
