The Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad locked horns yesterday at Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. MS Dhoni and men walked away with a six-wicket victory with one ball to spare against the Orange Army. Rashid Khan and Sandeep Sharma were the ones who leaked away most runs as Shane Watson went bonkers hitting all over the park. Rashid Khan conceded 44 runs and Watson lit up the stadium with his knock of 96 runs. As Watson was hitting all over the park, Watson and Rashid were seen getting into a tiff with each other. With no words spoken between the two, Rashid Khan and Shane Watson exchanged nasty stares at each other during the game. This surely did not go down well with the netizens and they trolled Rashid Khan on social media. CSK vs SRH, Stat Highlights: Shane Watson’s 96 Deny Sunrisers Hyderabad With A Win; MS Dhoni & Men Virtually Qualify for Playoffs.
Shane Watson missed his century by a whisker as the team chased the total of 175 runs. CSK has a poor start as they lost their opener Faf du Plessis quite early in the game. However, after this, Shane Watson built a partnership with Suresh Raina. Ambati Rayudu and Kedar Jadhav took the team to the finishing line. The video of Rashid Khan and Shane Watson exchanging stares was shared on social media. CSK beat SRH by 6 wickets.

After losing the game, Bhuvenshwar Kumar said, “It was a par score on that wicket. There was dew on the ground but that didn't really bother us. The way Watson batted we couldn't really do much. This is probably the first off day for Rashid in three years, anyone can have an off day. The credit goes to Watson.” SRH will take on Rajasthan Royals in their next assignment on April 27 on Sawai Man Singh Stadium.
