Pollard, who was unhappy with the umpire not calling the previous delivery from Dwayne Bravo a wide outside the off stump in the final over of the Mumbai Indians' innings. "He got 6 stitches after the game. got injured while diving but continue (sic) to bat without telling anyone".

Shane Watson, who scored a valiant 80 for the Chennai Super Kings in the finals of the just concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) which CSK lost to Mumbai Indians, batted all the way battling an injury, reveals his teammate Harbhajan Singh. Despite being dropped three times in the match, the retired Test cricketer kept going and seemed to have sealed the game for his team by hitting three sixes in the 18 over of the innings bowled, inexplicably, by Krunal Pandya.

"That's our @srwatson33, nearly pulled it (off) for us last night".

Mumbai thus won their fourth IPL title by one run.

His belligerent knock left Chennai needing nine runs off Malinga's last over but Watson attempted to retain the strike off the fourth delivery and was run out before Shardul Thakur was trapped LBW from Malinga's final delivery.

He said if it was amusing how both the teams kept on passing the trophy from one team to the other in the summit clash.

"Both (teams) committed mistakes, and eventually the winning team was the one that committed one mistake less".

"I think it was a very good final, it went close, last ball, so couldn't have gone better, but overall I think we need to go back to the drawing board and see the areas where we need to improve for next season".

Malinga struggled earlier on by giving away 49 runs in his four overs but the last two overs by the Sri Lankan and fellow pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who took 2-14, were decisive.

Watson was Chennai's second-leading runscorer for the tournament behind Dhoni, racking up 398 runs in 17 matches at an average of 23.41 with a strike rate of 127.56.
