Chennai Super Kings (CSK) veteran cricketer, Harbhajan Singh has opened up on his lucky cricket stadium a few days after winning the Indian Premier League (IPL) defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets.
Meanwhile, Chennai defied criticism to win the trophy for the third time after coming out from a two-year suspension. Experienced all-rounder, Shane Watson struck a brilliant unbeaten century to guide his team to the glory.
Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu also provided ample support while playing the second hand to Watson. Watson remained unbeaten on 117 runs after facing 57 balls with the help of 11 boundaries and eight towering sixes.
Previously, Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Kane Williamson got Hyderabad to a good start after losing the early wicket of Shreevats Goswami. The pair added 51 before Dhawan departed. However, Williamson (47) continued his outstanding form.
Further, Yusuf Pathan played a significant knock after he came to the crease at the score of 101 for three.
Pathan remained unbeaten on 45 runs from 25 deliveries including four boundaries and two sixes, as Hyderabad finished on 178 at the loss of six wickets.
