The emphatic victory took CSK to the top of the points table. Shane Watson was the star of the evening, bringing up his third IPL hundred and second of season 11. “Grateful for the opportunity I’ve had for CSK. Glad to repay them tonight. MS and Fleming know how to set up a really good team dynamic. Fortunate to be a part of CSK and to contribute to the win tonight,” Watson said on his knock.

Meanwhile, applauding Watson for his brilliant batting, Royals’ skipper Ajinky Rahane said, “Credit goes to CSK the way they played, especially Watson at the top of the order. Unfortunately, we dropped that catch. But, the way he played was incredible. CSK were too good tonight. It’s important to believe in our ability. We just need to go out there, try to improve and be positive. His (Watson) intent was completely different. He was positive from ball one.”
