In the grand night of the IPL 2019 finals, we witnessed a great match between two of the most successful teams in Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. The match went down to the last ball as Mumbai Indians just crossed the line to win the championship.

Watson played with injured leg in final and got 6 stitches later

This really was a memorable match not just for the Mumbai fans but also for fans of Chennai Super Kings and Shane Watson for his heroic efforts. He was the lone batsman from CSK who was fighting till the end to take the team home with a magnificent 80 from just 59 balls. But what happened during the match was unknown until Harbhajan Singh's Instagram story revealed that Watson actually got injured while diving but continued to bat without telling anyone in spite of him bleeding from his left knee behind the pads. He eventually had to get six stitches after the game according to the Harbhajan Singh's story.

This indeed is an unbelievable dedication from Shane Watson who put his body on the line for CSK. The team kept faith in him and trusted his ability even when he was not performing well and it has to be said that he did repay the faith, but unfortunately, he ended up on the wrong side on the Final day.
