Chennai Super Kings lost the IPL 2019 to Mumbai Indians by 1 run for the 3rd Time. The match was full of surprises from Dhoni getting run out in 2 years to the beneficial use of DRS to Watson batting with Bloodied knees.
Yes, you heard me right, Shane Watson who scored 80 off 59 balls came with a prize, in the 3rd over he was injured which you can see in the picture.
He showed everyone why he’s Australia’s best batsmen and CSK’s opener who played for his team, not for himself.
CSK off-spinner Harbhajan Singh revealed that Watson didn’t tell anyone about his injured knee and kept on batting. But after the match, he got Six Stitches. CSK tweeted this for the braveheart.

Respect for Shane Watson has gone beyond roof. His left knee seems to be badly injured with blood flowing out. He still batted and dived in the last over. Admirable from Watto to put his body on line at 38 after suffering from injuries throughout his career 👏👏 pic.twitter.com/4yqeGoubk4
