Profile

Shane Watson is a special all-rounder.

A splattering of international matches in the mid 2000’s showed he was on the radar, but it wasn’t until the Ashes tour of 2009/10 that he got his first main chance.

Back to back half centuries in his first match as an opening batsman indicated that he had developed the temperament to withstand the new ball.

Another successful series at home against the West Indies was only soured by the lack of a big hundred. Twice he fell with the milestone in sight, and it would be third time unlucky when he fell for 93 against Pakistan at the MCG.

It only took one more inning for him to bring up the elusive century. Usually a luckless individual, Watson was somehow dropped at gully on 99, with the misfield giving him enough time to scramble through for the all-important single.

Another near miss saw him dismissed for 97 in the 2nd test at the SCG, but all was soon forgotten when he made a gritty 126 in India.

After this Watson has continued to show how valuable he is. After a slow start to the recent Ashes series, he finished with a bang with 176 against England at The Oval, and then hit 143 in the final one-day match as Australia clinched the series 2-1.
