Former Australia all-rounder Shane Watson has been amazing for the Kangaroos since making his international debut in 2002, right until his retirement in 2016. Watson went on to score over 10000 runs and took 291 wickets on the international stage for Australia. He has also done well for whichever team he has played in various T20 leagues like the IPL, the BBL, the PSL, and the T10 league.

In the Indian Premier League (IPL), he has won the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament twice and was the first player to do so right in the first edition of the league in 2008, when his performances led the Rajasthan Royals to their maiden and only title. Currently, he is looking forward to featuring in the IPL 2020 for the Chennai Super Kings, with whom he won the IPL in 2018 and also helped the franchise reach the finals in 2019 edition.


Chris Gayle’s selfie obsession explained by Shane Watson

ESPNCricinfo featured Shane Watson recently in their 25 Questions segment, which led to pretty funny and hilarious answers from the all-rounder. He named Ricky Ponting, MS Dhoni, and Rahul Dravid as the best captains he had played under, while named his former Australian teammate and fast bowler Mitchell Johnson as the best mate to spend time in the gym with.

In an answer to another question, Shane Watson named West Indies opener and entertainer par excellence, Chris Gayle as the best selfie-taker in the cricket world. ‘The Universe Boss’ and Watson have shared the dressing room as a part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Chris Gayle will be playing for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the upcoming IPL edition after he was retained by the franchise.

Meanwhile, Watson, who had called time from most of the T20 leagues around the world, will be hoping for another great year with the Chennai team, which might be his last one with the franchise, given that the IPL 2021 auction will be a mega one with all the players going back into the auction pool and team having a limited number of retentions.
