Some Lesser Known Facts about Shane Watson:

*Watson is a scholarship holder from AIS (Australian Cricket Academy). He received it in the year 2000.

*In the 2006 ICC Champions Trophy Final, Australia defeated West Indies and won the tournament. Watson was given the Man of the Match award for his contribution of 57 runs and taking 2 wickets.

*Watson is the only player to have won the ICC player of the year award in all three formats.

*As a bowler, he is willing and speedy but prone to post-delivery exchanges. He picks up handy wickets and delivers useful overs in all forms, although he is a batting allrounder and not someone who would usually be picked on bowling alone.

*He and Simon Katich were a devastating opening pair and averaged 54.39 in their 28 innings together. To put that in perspective; it is better than Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes (47.31), Matthew Hayden and Justin Langer (51.88) and Marvin Atapattu and Sanath Jayasuriya (40.26) to name a few.

*On the back of his all-round performances in the IPL, his team Rajasthan retained him for the seventh edition of the IPL in 2014 and also appointed him as the skipper after Rahul Dravid retired at the end of the 2013 season.
