Retired Watson bags Australia’s T 20 I Player of the Year award 8


  1. Retired all-rounder Shane Watson has pipped his former team-mate Glenn Maxwell to be adjudged Cricket Australia’s (CA) T20 International Player of the Year at the Allan Border medal.
  2. The 35-year-old Watson, who retired from international cricket just after the World T20 in India last year, was the second highest run-getter behind Maxwell during the voting period from January 8, 2016 to January 7, 2017 but bagged the award on the back of his equally potent bowling.
