Australian Cricket

Australian Cricket has many upcoming players, and Shane Watson might be the best and most important player on the Australian books. For every success, there have been as many set backs there is hope that Shane gets through unscathed. Shane Watson is an enigma – following his international career is like being in a long-distance relationship with someone you don’t know that well.

While his 8-Test career has been steady if not unsuccessful – one 4-for and a 78 with the bat represent his best – his ODI career has been gathering sputtering momentum and in the UAE he had an excellent series and finished with a batting average of 90. His bowling also seems to be steadily improving and in his 5 tests in 2008 his average was in the low 30s, which is pretty fair for a 4th change bowler. Watson has all the talent in the world and on paper Watson should be one of the first players selected in all 3 teams, have a 2000 odd test runs under his belt.

Shane’s problems with injury are well known. Frustratingly for fans and selectors, and no less himself, he has struggled throughout his career to string matches together. He suffered a groin injury in the last Twenty20 match in Dubai. Thankfully the injury won’t keep him out of the Twenty20 World Cup – or the Ashes series – but the rehab work required to overcome the injury must surely be another frustration for Shane.

What do you think about Shane’s contribution to Australian Cricket? Do you think he is that good for the team? Who do you think is better?
