Watson also addressed that it was fun to spend some time in the middle with Faf du Plessis. He recited that it was always a change in the mindset that brings the best out of a player. And, the same thing happened with him in the game against Kings XI Punjab.

“It was nice to spend some time with my good mate Faf in the middle. Amazing how a little change in mindset can make a big difference in getting things moving. It was nice to get some winning momentum. The faith that CSK continues to show in their players goes a long way. I love batting with Faf, I do believe that we complement each other really well,” he added.
