Pakistan’s one of the legendary allrounder Shahid Afridi calls Shane Watson as one of the greatest allrounders of modern era.
Shane Watson who just announced his retirement from all forms of cricket after CSK’s disqualified from IPL playoffs. He played some matches in initial part of the IPL 2020 season but couldn’t make the most of it otherwise it would have been even bigger stage for him to announce his retirement.
Shane Watson has already played his last match of any form while representing Chennai Super Kings in IPL. He also represented Quetta Gladiators in HBL PSL this year but won’t be part of the league next year. He was simply brilliant in HBL PSL. It won’t be a wrong to say he is only foreign cricket who is consistent with the bat in HBL PSL.
Shane Watson won the couple of Cups with Australia and one Champions Trophy with them as player. He won the mega event before playing last match in 2015.
He also won the IPL trophy with Rajasthan Royals and CSK in IPL. Won the PSL trophies with Islamabad United in first ever season and with Quetta Gladiators in 2019.
Shahid Afridi calls him one of the greatest allrounders of modern era after looking at his higher achievement that he got during the times with Australia as he had wonderful Champions Trophy in 2009 in South Africa. He alongside Ricky Ponting saw England packing their material going back to home in Semi Final of Champions Trophy 2009. Final also belonged to him though.

“Congratulations on a wonderful career Shane Watson you were one of the greatest allrounders of modern day cricket, really enjoyed playing against you. Hope you have a great time and life post retirement,” Shahid Afridi tweeted about Shane Watson as one of the greatest allrounders in the world.
