DUBAI: Shane Watson, the former Australian all-rounder and Quetta Gladiator’s opening batsman, has said that there is an ‘incredible’ amount of bowling talent in Pakistan that will make its mark in international cricket in the near future.
Speaking to Dawn exclusively here on Tuesday after the Quetta Gladiators’ practice session at the ICC Cricket Academy, Watson said, “There is oceans of talent in Pakistan Super League (PSL) so it is really hard to single out one person in particular”.
“There are so many skillful players out there, especially when it comes to the bowlers whether it is the spin bowling options or fast bowlers. There is going to be plenty of talent coming through for Pakistan. That’s for sure,” he added.
Watson also commented on his experience with the Quetta Gladiators so far and said that it has been fun working with the new team. “Quetta is a wonderful team. We have a relaxed environment in our camp but obviously we have had a lot of success in the last two seasons, making place in the finals on both occasions, so expectations are high,” he said. He also said that he feels ‘lucky’ to be working under the likes of Sir Vivian Richards and Moin Khan.
