With the IPL 2020 and all International series getting either cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all the players are enjoying the untimely break from the game. The 21-days locked down has stopped every outdoor activity and services at least till 14 April. And this lockdown has united the mankind to fight with the greatest ever threat. The celebrities and renowned personalities are urging people to stay safe and indoors.
Recently, Shane Watson also shared a video message on twitter urging the same to his fans and people across the globe. The all-rounder captioned the message, “Thinking of you all during these challenging times. One thing I have found during isolation is that there is a lot more downtime to work on things you love. I hope you enjoy what I have put together.”
However, a fan took a dig at the former Australian all-rounder and wrote, “And he’s out. LBW,” for his weakness of getting out LBW against the incoming ball. But being a great ambassador of the game, Watson politely replied “Hey Tom. Thanks so much for your great feedback mate. I hope you are staying safe,” while advising him to stay safe in the crisis.
And he's out. LBW

Arguably the finest limited-overs all-rounder of the modern era, Shane Watson is the ever shining star in white-ball cricket. Watson was one of the few Australian players who could handle pace and spin with equal ease. Whether it’s batting at the top or finishing lower down the order, he played every role that was given to him with as perfection as one could. He was also handy with the bowl in hand as he picked 291 wickets in his international career apart from 92 wickets in IPL.
The all-rounder is one of the iconic players of Indian Premier League since the inaugural edition. In 134 matches, Watson has scored 3575 runs hitting as many as 4 centuries in IPL so far. However, throughout his career, the incoming delivery has remained his biggest problem especially when the ball is swinging and seaming enough.
