Shane Watson’s top five T20I cricketers include two Pakistanis
The famous Shane Watson, a former Australian Test cricketer, has said that two Pakistani stars are among the five players he would choose for the World T20 XI if he had the chance. Warner put Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan’s team, and Shaheen Shah Afridi, a speed king, on his list of the top five players in the World T20I.
The last three people are Indian Suryakumar Yadav, Australian David Warner, and English Jos Buttler. He had nothing but good things to say about Shaheen, who won’t be able to play in the next T20 Asia Cup in 2022 or the home T20I series against England. The former batter who called Babar the best T20I batter in the world said that Babar “knows how to dominate.”
“It’s like he’s not even taking any risks. He scores incredibly quickly against the best bowlers in the world. He’s going to do very well in Australian conditions (during the T20 World Cup) as well, as his technique is very much built for Australian conditions,” Watson said.
“Shaheen’s wicket-taking ability is something special. We saw in the last men’s T20 World Cup his ability to be able to get the best batsmen out with that brand new ball. I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t really dominate in Australian conditions. With the ball swinging around and fast, bouncy wickets,” he said.
“My only little concern with him is, if he doesn’t take wickets to start with. Then he can tail off a little bit. But I’m sure he’s been working on that. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t dominate here,” he said.
