Ahead of the upcoming Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL 2020), CSK’s Shane Watson revealed some interesting insights about his journey in IPL.
The dynamic Australian all-rounder, who has plied his trade across several IPL teams and has an experience of over 100 league games opined that Chennai Super Kings in the best best franchise to play in. Starting his IPL career with Rajasthan Royals, Watson has also played for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
However, throughout his journey, Watson feels CSK is an ‘ama.zing franchise’ and is lucky to have MS Dhoni as the skipper to marshall the troops.

Watson was a part of the Rajasthan Royals since the inaugural season, in 2008. That IPL season also helped him make an improbable comeback to international cricket. After being sidelined due to injuries, Watson decided to join the Royals and emerged the Player of the Tournament in the first edition of the tournament. In the 2016 edition of the league, Watto was bought by RCB.
An attacking batsman with a solid defence and an athletic fielder and a medium-pacer, he can swing the ball and pick up useful wickets. The all-rounder has always played a crucial role in his IPL team’s fortunes, and CSK will hope he brings in the same aggression and firepower into their camp.
