The Australian cricketer almost took Chennai over the line in the Indian Premier League final against Mumbai but got run out in the last over. With two runs needed off the final ball, Lasith Malinga trapped Shardul Thakur leg-before to secure Mumbai's win by one run.
Watson scored 80 off 59 balls, including four sixes and eight fours, before he was run out in the final over going for a second run, again diving to make his ground.
After the tpurnament ended, Watson shared an emotional video on his Instragram account to thank his fans and supporters.
He said, "Hello everyone, I have just arrived home and want to thank everyone for the love, support and best wishes that you've given me over the last couple of days. We were so close to going past the finish line against Mumbai but it was an amazing final."
Watson also insured the fans that he would return to Chennai Super Kings with a bang in IPL 2020.
