Shane Watson, the former Australian all-rounder starred for the hosts as he smashed a 96-run knock off just 53 deliveries to enable the team to chase down the target of 176 runs.The CSK captain also shared his views on the match-winner Watson and said that batsman was batting well in the nets, so it was just a matter of time he got it together in the matches as well."I think you can give individuals a few games. Watson has been a match winner for us so we need to back him and he has been batting well in the nets. If Watson gets going, you know what's on the plate. It started last year and it's good to see different individuals come good, the bowlers have done surprisingly well, the batting needs to click together," Dhoni said.Watson after playing a 96 run knock said he has to thank both skipper and coach of CSK to keep their faith in him.advertisement"I was due runs, that's for sure. I can't thank Stephen Fleming and MS Dhoni enough to have kept faith in me. In any other team, I may have been dropped sooner. Happy to repay that faith. I knew I was in good nick, just needed to get my head right, get my technique right, had a bit of luck by playing and missing in the beginning," Watson said at the post-match ceremony.With this win, Chennai Super Kings once again reached the pole position in the IPL league standings with 16 points.The team next takes on Mumbai Indians on Friday, 26 April at Chennai.Also Read | CSK reclaim top spot but MS Dhoni is not revealing any trade secretsFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
