Watson is ready to rock the BPL!
This will be Watson’s first time to play in BPL, one of the most popular franchise-based T20 tournament in the world.
Watson, one of the very few players to have got the opportunity to captain Australia in all three formats of the game, announced his retirement from international and first-class cricket last year. But still he is playing in different T20 leagues all around the globe.
Waton played his last T20I game against India on March 27, 2016 during the ICC World T20 last year. He played 58 T20Is in total, while he also has the experience of playing as many as 102 IPL matches.
