Shane Watson

Shane Watson could have been one of Australia's most lethal weapons between 2005 and 2010 had it not been for his recurring injuries. On his day, he is a man who can single handedly put up a biog total for his team and then follow it up with a bowling spell that may not be destructive but enough to soften the team up for someone else to finish the job. Watson had to change his training, give up alcohol and bring a general shift to his lifestyle so as to overcome his injury issues. He was finally chosen to open for Australia in the 2009 Ashes. He repeatedly got out in the 80's and 90's and finally got his test century against Pakistan at the MCG. He was a prominent figure in an Australian side that was in transition following the retirement of the likes of Shane Warne, Matthew Hayden and Adam Gilchrist and was given the Test captaincy in 2013. Watson is known for his big hitting in the shorter formats of the game and his total of 189 against Bangladesh was the highest by any Australian batsmen in ODIs.
