    "To see an incredible cricketer transition to a world leader is something to aspire to" : S Watson

    Shane Watson speaking about taking part in the T10 League:

    "The reason I am playing T10 is because it is different"

    "Talking to the guys who played this last season, they had a lot of fun playing it"

    "The league was very well run and what I am excited about it is that this is a very different format than T20"

    "Its going to be very interesting and enjoyable"

    "Specialist players across all formats are crucial but all-rounders provide a good balance to the team as well"

    "The day of young kids playing 1-2 day games are gone, and we have now kids wanting to instant action and entertainment"

    "The days are going when every team has to play each other once in 4 years or so in FTP; [There is interest in] When you have tournaments when there is something riding on every game, there is an end-point at the end of the season and there is a winner"

    "This is why ODI, T20 World Cups are so well-watched"

    "Its great for the players and for the viewing public"

    "I cant see the shorter versions taking anything away from the other formats"

    "I have always had a great time playing against Pakistan, whether its T20 cricket or Test cricket and have enjoyed the contest against Pakistan"

    "My first Test 100 was against Pakistan and I have incredible memories of the World Cup QF where Pakistan with Wahab Riaz played some really tough cricket"

    "They have very talented cricketers and if they get on top of you they are very hard to stop"

    "The Pakistan players I have played with love cricket as much as I do"

    "I am really excited to be part of the Karachians"

    "to get out there, individually and as a team, make the Karachians proud"

    "hopefully some Karachi fans will come to Dubai to support us on the ground too"

    "From a cricketers point of view to see someone who was such an incredible cricketer to then transition to be a world leader is something for everyone to aspire to"

    "Its incredible what he has achieved and from what I have heard, he has always been there for the people"

    Whilst he was rubbish in tests for the most part, he was a brilliant LO cricketer.

    Shane Watson backs India batsmen to do well in Australia

    Shane Watson has backed India's Test batsmen to do well in Australia later this year despite their struggles in England.

    Watson sympathised with India's batsmen for their failures in the ongoing England tour, which the visitors are trailing 3-1 with one Test to go, pointing out that very few teams play swing bowling well these days.

    Virat Kohli has been outstanding, aggregating 544 runs from eight innings at an average of 68, but the next best Indian contributor – Cheteshwar Pujara – has scored just 241 runs. Indeed, not many of the England batsmen have done well either, with Jos Buttler's 260 their best.

    The all-rounder, who last represented Australia in 2016, felt that the Indian batsmen would be better equipped to tackle conditions in his country when they tour later this year because the Kookaburra ball doesn't swing so prodigiously.

    “It is not easy to play swing bowling. Trust me when Australia travel to England for Ashes next year, it won’t be easy for them also. England is the only place where the ball swings that much primarily due to conditions. You just can’t land in England once every three years and be successful,” Watson told Press Trust of India in an interaction.

    “In Australia, the Kookaburra will stop swinging after first 10 or may be 15 overs, unlike Dukes, which can swing all day. I don’t think bounce would be that much of a problem.

    “I don’t think any international team is playing swing bowling well these days and that is reflective in the performance on overseas (tours)."

    He went on to voice concerns that Australia will find it challenging to post imposing totals in the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, who are serving suspensions by Cricket Australia for their involvement in a ball-tampering incident during their tour of South Africa earlier this year.

    “The biggest challenge for Australia will be to post big scores in the absence of Warner and Smith. These two were instrumental in Australia getting big scores. Tim Paine is a capable man of leading Australia. He has the requisite leadership qualities but I am more concerned about the batting than captaincy.”
