18.3 - C Brathwaite to A Rayudu

FOUR! There it is! Those are the winning runs. CHENNAI ARE THE INDIAN T20 LEAGUE CHAMPIONS FOR 2018! And aptly, Ambati Rayudu hits the winning boundary. He gets some room outside off and smashes it through covers for a boundary. He has been the leading run-scorer for Chennai and has done the job most times in this season and hence, it's a sweet way to clinch the title. Out come the Chennai players, they charge to the middle and are jumping up and down in celebration. What great scenes! Emotions pouring. A thrilling moment for the Yellow army, not so for the Orange one.

Anticlimax! Watson defends this one from the crease to the off side. Expected a big one but he decides to let it be.

FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries! This is the highest individual score in the final of this league. Another overpitched delivery on the stumps, Shane smashes it back down the ground. The ball wastes minimum time in racing to the fence.

FOUR! Almost takes Kaul with it! Full in line of the stumps, Watson just makes room and blasts it right back. Thankfully, Kaul moved away in time for the ball to go to the fence.
