FORMER AUSSIE ALLROUNDER Shane Watson is eager to play for Chennai Super Kings and is excited with the prospect of playing under MS Dhoni.
Watson, who has previously represented Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore, said that it will be an honor to represent CSK in 2018. As reported by PTI, he said,
“It is going to be a real honour to play for such a great franchise with the history that the Chennai Super Kings have, and the thought of playing under the great Mahendra Singh Dhoni excites me a lot. It is going to be a little strange initially as CSK were one of Rajasthan’s big rivals which started way back in the first year of the IPL. But it won’t take that long to subside.”
Despite having retired from international cricket in 2016, Watson is confident that he has it in him to play competitive leagues.
“I still absolutely love playing the game, which is an easy motivation in itself. I still love the thrill of the unknown of every game and I am extremely competitive and so I have no problem with motivation at all for each game. Any CSK squad with Dhoni, (Suresh) Raina and (Ravindra) Jadeja as a starting point is going to be incredibly good and is always going to compare really well to the previous years.
