Watson's innings was really good, but that doesnt detract from the fact that IPL is geared much towards batsmen than bowlers. A team is forced to take a number of timeouts, and yet there are strict penalties for slow over rates.
It seems to be geared towards stocky batsmen like Raina, who will hit 4's (and not have to run for singles), and stocky bowlers like Chawla and Warne whose run up will consist of 3 steps so that over rates are fast.

Its all about the player's physique !
