Shane watson is set to return to play for Australia who will be taking on South Africa In T20I’s Starting in November. The returning all rounder is confident that his enforced layoff due to injury has provided him with the time he needed to recuperate before taking his international career to its greatest heights yet. Shane Watson who has been included for the three T20I’s, said in an exclusive Interview that he is confident and he feels that his best years are in front of him. The Series will be played between November 5th to November 9th.

“For everything that I’ve been through and learnt in every aspect of my life – not just the cricket perspective – I feel like I’ve only got my best years in front of me, to be totally honest. Every time I get injured I learn a little bit more about my body where my body’s at. This three-four month break that I’ve had has just been a perfect time to really, really freshen up”

National selector Mark Waugh had earlier said that Watson’s experience in the T20 format of the game was the major reason that he was hurried back in the side.Watson has played 45 T20 International’s ,with David Warner having played 52, He is Australia’s leading wicket taker in this format and the second highest run scorer.

Watson said when he was included in tha Australian side , he did’nt had the ability to clear the ropes easily , he had to work hard on it. He said, “I suppose I was just lucky that I developed that skill-set around the time that Twenty20 came in as well.”

“I think Australian cricket’s in great hands with the allrounders that are coming through, (but) hopefully I can keep performing well in all formats of the game,” he added.

“If it doesn’t work out that way, then we’ve certainly got some great allrounders with Mitch Marsh and also Jimmy Faulkner, who’s as talented (as Marsh) with both bat and ball. So I know we’re very lucky to have those guys coming through, but hopefully I can keep them at bay for a few more years.”

Watson also said that , he loves being an all rounder and loves to use his skill , and he quashed all the allegation that he will now play only as a batsman in the team. “I love being able to try and use my skill that I developed throughout my career to be able to try and make a difference on a game,So I’ll go down swinging as an allrounder no matter what, because I love being able to contribute.”
