Watson innings best in IPL so far: Warne

May 12, 2008 11:31 IST

Rajasthan Royals skipper Shane Warned termed the blistering 74-run knock of Shane Watson as the "best" knock which helped them take a "sweet revenge" from Delhi Daredevils in Jaipur on Sunday.

"Watson's innings was turning point of the match. His innings was perhaps the best in the tournament. It was most valuable and brilliant innings," Warne said at the post match press conference.

"I am happy with the team's victory, sitting on top of the table. Revenge was sweet," he said in an apparent reference to the nine-wicket loss against Delhi in the away tie early in the tournament.

Warne also apologised to his team for bowling a costly over.

"Things went according to our plan till the 19th over. I apologise for that over. I was hit for 27 runs.

"We bowled well. Field placing was good and we were able to contain them. We had plans for Sehwag; we bowled slow to him. Dmitri, Watson Siddarth (Trivedi) and Munaf intentionally kept the ball slow," he said.
