Former Aussie star's remarkable feat in IPL final

Dream 11 team for CSK vs SRH

In today's final match, Two times champion Chennai Super Kings meets Sunrisers Hyderabad in Mumbai.

He led tributes to Watson.

The 36-year-old Watson smartly orchestrated the run-chase by hitting 11 fours and eight sixes while keeping strike bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar (0-17) and Rashid Khan (0-24) wicketless.

Watson's ton helped Chennai claim their third IPL title. "So what you tell yourselves is that they have to commit and try, but there's no point getting injured for a single", said Dhoni before adding the CSK squad will be heading to Chennai tomorrow for further celebrations. Earlier, SRH Captain Kane Williamson (47) and batsman Yusuf Pathan (45 not out) contributed Sun Risers Hyderabad (SRH) to post a good target of 179. Brathwaite, who fell in the final delivery of Hyderabad's innings, chipped in with a valuable 21 runs off 11 balls. His death bowling is of the highest quality and he's got a fantastic slower ball as well.

Ireland overwhelmingly votes to repeal abortion ban, exit polls project
Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar , who backs the reform, said he was taking nothing for granted as he voted in the capital. That said, with a result of that magnitude, clearly there was very little to be done.

In his 175-IPL career, Dhoni has scored 4016 runs at an average of 40.16, including 20 half-centuries. MS Dhoni had said after the monumental chase against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the league stage, that the trick lies in picking your bowlers, and Watson and CSK were magnificent in picking theirs on the night of the final. He featured in a match-winning second-wicket stand of 117 runs with Suresh Raina, who made 32.

The big-hitting Aussie allrounder plundered 27 runs off one over of paceman Sandeep Sharma. Notable misses are Ambati Rayudu, Kane Williamson, AB de Villiers, Sunil Narine and Umesh Yadav.

Watson was just one of nine members of the Chennai squad to be aged over 30.

"I don't think the Australian public realised how good he was when he was playing for Australia".

Boston Celtics Pride: The growing legend of Jayson Tatum
During the Cavs series with the Toronto Raptors, James complained of the lack of off-days in what could infer the need for rest. The Celtics have two chances to go to their first Finals since 2010 - the a year ago a non-LeBron team represented the East.

"As a team it was important we gelled quickly together to try and start operating well as a unit", the New Zealand captain said.Sunrisers' coach Tom Moody, who has been with the franchise since 2012, said Williamson had taken his leadership role like a "duck to water".

It's hard to recall when an individual player's cricketing prowess on the field had created so much buzz cutting across the national boundaries in the past.

If Dhoni's name was being chanted long after what turned out to be a surprisingly comfortable win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad, another 36-year-old, Shane Watson, emerged as the cynosure.

The winners of the final were guaranteed a minimum $4 million in prize money.
