Shane Watson played one of his best T20 knocks against the SRH at Chennai scoring 96 off just 53 balls to take the team home.

Shane Watson pays back trust shown on him by Dhoni and Fleming

Shane Watson was struggling to score runs in the tournament upto this point and there were a lot of talks about dropping him from the team. However, Dhoni and the CSK management kept faith in him and continued as he paid back in grand fashion. 

MS Dhoni after the match said that they know the kind of player Watson is and if he can get going they know what they are going to get. Having faith in his ability and giving him a few more games has really helped as he is back in form now.

Shane Watson also really appreciated and thanked Dhoni and Fleming for keeping faith in him and said that If it was any other franchise he was playing for, he would have been dropped a few matches back. He also went on to specifically point out that he would have definitely been dropped a few matches back if he was in his previous franchise referring to RCB.

However, he seems to be enjoying his time at CSK and hopefully, he has many more match winning knocks left in him.
