It’s frustrating, but CSK were deserved winners. They certainly showed their experience.”
Talking about the team, Williamson said, “a new bunch of guys in SRH, a great bunch of guys in the unit. Showed great character.

The skipper was quoted saying, “It was a great experience leading this side, shame that we couldn’t win the final, but there are a lot of positives.
