Watson reveals his favourite memory with CSK
“I have been very fortunate to play for CSK for the past few years. I really enjoyed my time at the Rajasthan Royals. It was an incredible experience to play under Shane Warne and play in Jaipur, it is a beautiful cricket ground, and the wicket is amazing”, said Watson.
Shane Watson also lauded the leadership roles that both captain MS Dhoni and coach Stephen Fleming play throughout the IPL. Watson also went on to reveal his favourite memory with the CSK franchise in which Dwayne Bravo played an instrumental role.
“My favourite moment with CSK was the game against Mumbai Indians in Mumbai in IPL 2018. DJ Bravo batted like a genius. He got us out of trouble and won us after the game. I remember after the game MS Dhoni and Michael Hussey said that this is what we do at CSK”, said Watson.
