Bravo and Watson come up trumps against Delhi Capitals
Chasing a modest target of 148 for victory Watson smashed 44 from just 26 balls with four boundaries and three sixes while fellow veteran Raina struck 30 from only 16 deliveries (4×4, 1×6) to make light work of the run chase.
Legspinner Amit Mishra dismissed both via the gloves of Rishabh Pant – Watson stumped and Raina caught – but it was too little, too late with the score at 98 for three and the required rate already below five runs per over.
Kedar Jadhav (27) was caught behind off Kagiso Rabada with just a couple of runs required but captain MS Dhoni (32 not out from 35 balls) completed a routine victory in the company of Dwayne Bravo (4*) with Rabada finishing with 1-26 from 3.4 overs.
