IPL 2020: MS Dhoni and Shane Watson hit hard in nets
First Published 14, Sep 2020, 12:29 PM
Dhoni and Watson were seen practicing in their natural freestyle in the nets. The team shared a video clip of the duo on their social media account.
The Yellow Brigade shared a video of the skipper, MS Dhoni, and Shane Watson displaying their magnificent batting skills. The tweet captioned “Thala Dhoni and Watto Man - Class act from the timeless beauties”. The oldsters, rather the most experienced, were seen playing their lofting shots in the nets and during the practice sessions.
The Australian all-rounder was owned by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in 2018. The ravishing opener has scored 953 runs in 32 matches for the franchise in the last two years. Scoring a ravishing hundred in the 2018 final against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Watson aided CSK to lift the winning trophy. Battling the knee injury in the 2019 finals, the former contributed his best, but CSK couldn’t notch the winning title.
The Captain Cool, MS Dhoni, has maintained this perennial legacy of reaching the playoffs in all seasons the franchise has played. Giving a tough fight each time, the captain had led the team eight times in the finals.
MS Dhoni and Watson share unique chemistry and complement each other well.
With the first match awaited against the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) this Saturday, CSK look promising, with an intent to make all amends and grab the winning title this season.
