Chennai Super Kings finally got their winning momentum back after their six-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday. It was a morale-boosting win for the three-time champions as they had suffered two consecutive losses prior to this win. In the process, they also avenged their reverse fixture loss against the 'Orange Army' last week.
After the game, the pioneer of CSK's win Shane Watson was seen having a little discussion with his son William. The Jr.Watto who had enjoyed his father's stellar knock was full of praises for the stylish opening batsman. At the same time, the former Australian all-rounder asked William whether he had any other favourite player who gave him high-fives all the time. 'Dhoni' replied the little kid. Watson then asked his junior whether Dhoni has hit any sixes. 'All the time' replied William instantly.

Shane Watson found his mojo back as he played a stellar knock of a 53-ball 96 at a strike rate of a 181.13 which included nine boundaries and six maximums. Even though he fell short of a well deserved century his innings did not go in vain as CSK reached the target with one ball to spare. Watson was adjudged 'Man of the Match' for his quickfire knock.
Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings are almost assured of a playoff berth after their six-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday. The defending champions reached at the summit of the points table by the virtue of this win. They have now registered eight wins in 11 matches with 16 points.
CSK will be in action against Mumbai Indians at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Friday.
