IPL 2019: Twitter salutes Shane Watson for batting with a bleeding knee in the final

In a nail-biting finish, Mumbai Indians (MI) won the IPL 2019 final just by one run and prevented the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) from regaining the trophy.

Chasing a modest target of 150, most of the Chennai batsmen failed to deliver, with the exception of opener Shane Watson. He almost took them over the line, but ultimately was dismissed in a last over run out. Although the Men in Yellow lost the final, Watson is getting a lot of praise on social media after fans got to know that he was playing with a bleeding knee.

A day after the finale, the CSK off-spinner Harbhajan Singh revealed that Watto had played with a bleeded knee during the run chase. Despite the injury, the veteran Australia batsman pulled off a brilliant 80-run knock off 59 balls to change the momentum of the game in Chennai’s favour. The CSK was close to victory but a superb slow ball from Lasith Malinga powered MI to win their fourth IPL title.

Twitterati are in awe of Watto’s fighting spirit and have hailed him as a true warrior.

Here are some of the best tweets :
