Umar Akmal congratulates Watson for reaching 8000 T20 runs

Even after 4 years of his retirement, Australian all-rounder Shane Watson sits as one of the most dangerous batters of the cricketing world. The proficient cricketer featured in various T20 leagues across the globe and left his mark.

In the running edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the 37-year old found life hard as his bat was unable to fire. While many started writing him off, Watson made a stunning comeback against Sunrisers Hyderabad where he scored 96 runs to help Chennai register yet another victory. The superlative batting effort allowed him to get past 8000 T20 runs – a feat achieved by only a few cricketers.

Seeing Watson’s progress jubilated Pakistan’s explosive middle-order batsman Umar Akmal who moved forward to congratulate the Queensland born player. 

The 28-year old cricketer who played alongside Watson for Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) believes that Watson is a special cricketer who is always open to share his experiences. 

Moreover, Umar wished him luck for all of his future endeavors. On the other hand, the belligerent Aussie is confident of winning another title with Chennai Super Kings.
