Shane Watson Bravely Bats With Bleeding Knee In The IPL Final, Gets 6 Stitches & Twitter Is All Praise!

A year ago, when Chennai Super Kings took on the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL final 2018, veteran Aussie batsman, Shane Watson’s unbeaten knock of 117 runs earned MS Dhoni and his men the coveted trophy. Come 2019, despite Chennai losing in the finals, Watson turned out to be the hero for the men in yellow once again.

The 37-year-old almost pulled off a sensational victory for the Super Kings this year too, but unfortunately was run out at a score 80. However, an incident which has come to light about the power-hitter will make you respect the cricketer even more.

Legendary Indian off-spinner and Watson’s Chennai teammate, Harbhajan Singh, went on to share a picture of Watson from the final against Mumbai Indians. The picture showed the Aussie batting with a bleeding knee and a large area of his pant covered in blood.

Harbhajan added that the man had cut his knee while diving during his innings but continued to bat for his team without letting anyone know. The story read,

“Can you guys see the blood on his knee…he got 6 stitches after the injured while diving but continue to bat without telling anyone. That’s our @srwatson33 Almost pulled it off for us last night.”

Watson also had to bear the pain of six stitches after the match to stop the blood flow.

The post went viral in no time with people hailing the superstar for his incredible dedication and class.


Not all heroes wear capes and Watson is definitely one of them!
