Chennai Super Kings had a fairy-tale comeback to IPL, winning the 2018 edition on Sunday, their third crown, with a scintillating performance at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday. Sunrisers Hyderabad posted a competitive 178, but Shane Watson just blew away the opponents.
Speaking about the win, skipper MS Dhoni said after the match that it is fitness and not age that matters. “We talked a lot about age, but what's more important is the fitness. Rayudu, at 33, it doesn't really matter.”
He added, "If you ask most captains, they want players who move well on the field. Doesn't matter if you're 19-20 years old. Age is just a number, but you have to be very fit.”
Man of the Match Watson, who cracked a brilliant hundred, said, “It's been a special season, to be honest. To get a special season especially after the last season with RCB. It means a lot to be with a franchise like CSK.”
