Shane Watson: Happy Birthday To One Of The Most Iconic Players In The Modern Game

Australian former cricketer Shane Robert Watson celebrates his 41st Birthday today i.e., June 17, 2022.

Known for his destructive batting and all-around performance, Watson was born in Ipswich, Queensland.

Though he began his first-class cricket career with Tasmania, he returned to his native home state of Queensland when he was about to start his international cricket career.

To begin his international career, he made his debut in March 2002, and without taking much time, he made his place in the team as a star batter.

Within a short period, he lifted himself from a batter who batted lower down the order to a batter who was the opener for the team with his impressive technique and solid approach.

With his unbeaten 57-run knock and two wickets in the final of the 2006 Champions Trophy, he was the man of the match.

In his international career, he scored 10950 runs, including 14 centuries and 67 half-centuries.

He became the fastest player to score 5000 runs and take 150 wickets.

He also won the title of Man of the Match in 2008 and 2013 in IPL. Apart from that, he played a crucial role in the Chennai Super Kings’ win of the IPL title in 2018 by scoring a splendid century on the night of the finals.

His record of most sixes in an innings and highest ODI runs by an Australian remains unbeaten.

He had won the title of Man of the Match in the 2012 T20 World Cup.

He also played a crucial role in Australia’s 2007 and 2015 World Cup win.

Apart from representing Australia in all formats, Watson is an indispensable player in IPL for the CSK franchise.

According to Forbes, Watson became the highest-paid non-Indian cricketer in the world for five consecutive years between 2011 and 2015.
