Watson continues his journey in the IPL after winning IPL titles with the Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings. He won Player of the Tournament in the first season with the Royals. His match-winning unbeaten 117 for CSK in the 2018 Final against Hyderabad is considered one of the best IPL knocks ever.
