Former Australian all-rounder admitted the reason behind the lack of consistent performances from him in the Test arena. The all-rounder said that he did not approach the Test cricket with the right mind-set.
“I look back at my Test career and I know with the skill I had I did not like the outcomes I had, now I know that my mental application during Test matches was usually fatigued, I just wanted to do too well in every Test match I played, I used to make a mistake because I had burnt myself,” Watson said.
"I never looked into my mindset as to where I was into the lead-up to the game and that is why I was not able to bat for long periods of time. In the shorter formats, there was a goal and I knew how to go about things," he added.
While Watson surged to records in the limited-overs cricket, the bloke only averaged 35 in the Test cricket with total score of 3731 in 59 matches and took 75 wickets as well.
