IPL: Watson, Du Plessis guide Chennai to final

VISHAKHAPATNAM, India: Fifties from Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson helped Chennai outplay Delhi by six wickets to enter their record eighth Indian Premier League (IPL) final on Friday.

Chasing 148 for victory, Chennai rode on a 81-run opening stand between Du Plessis and Watson to achieve their target with an over to spare in the second qualifier in Visakhapatnam.

The Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side set up a title clash with Mumbai Indians, who beat Chennai in the first qualifier earlier this week.

The two teams fight for supremacy on Sunday in Hyderabad with three titles each in the world's most popular Twenty20 tournament that started in 2008.
