You simply can't miss MB and Rashid Khan's Twitter interaction

He finished unbeaten on 117 from just 57 deliveries, the highest ever score by an individual in a final, surpassing Wriddiman Saha's 115 from Kings XI Punjab in 2014.

He led tributes to Watson. "That's what more matters than age", Dhoni said after the match. While Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Kane Williamson lead the batting attack of SRH, players like Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan have contributed well to the team. One could understand Williamson's temptation to get an early third over out of Bhuvi in the final, given the astonishing first two he had bowled. But it's a challenge to get that bat-ball balance. Coming to CSK side, both Watson and Bravo will play vital role in tonight's game. It was a memorable tournament for the 36-year-old Australian, who ended with 555 runs including two centuries and as many 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.

While Ambati Rayudu has proved to be CSK's top batsmen this season with 586 runs in 15 matches.

Watson took a single off Khan to bring up his hundred in 51 balls and then acknowledged a standing ovation from the Chennai dugout and the crowd with his team already in sight of their IPL triumph.

The former Aussie worldwide stitched a sensational 117-run stand with Suresh Raina (32 off 24) for the third wicket to take the most successful franchise in the IPL history closer to another title.

He continued: "As soon as their attention span started to wane, I used the Smartie trick", he said. "And Harry looked great". She continued, offering up further details about Charlotte's behaviour, "She was really sweet".

Watson was just one of nine members of the Chennai squad to be aged over 30. Thus, the IPL 2018 finale is not likely to experience any weather hindrance as the chances of rain are not during the match.

The God of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar, spoke for millions, when he tweeted this, "Always felt @rashidkhan_19 was a good spinner but now I wouldn't hesitate in saying he is the best spinner in the world in this format". The much-awaited match will be an exciting match and we can't wait to see which team takes the trophy home.

"What captains want is players who move well in the field. Fielding is one department where you can't make excuses, compared to past year, I've worked really hard in my fielding".

During the team photograph later on, four-year-old Ziva ran towards her father before he twirled her around.
