Chennai, Apr 22: Shane Watson's superb first hundred of IPL 2013 went in vain as Chennai Super Kings defeated Rajasthan Royals by 5 wickets in yet another last-over finish in Match 30 here at MA Chidambaram Stadium on Monday night.


RR posted 185/4 in 20 overs thanks to Watson's blistering 61-ball 101 which contained 6 fours and 6 sixes. This was also the Australian all-rounder's maiden ton in Twenty20s. But another Australian, Michael Hussey overshadowed Watson's efforts with a magnificent 88 off 51 (13x4, 1x6) that guided the home team's chase. Hussey was well supported by Suresh Raina, who hit his first half century of this IPL.
