Shane Watson Signed By Khulna Titans For BPL 2019-20
The seventh edition of Bangladesh Premier League is scheduled to start in the first week of December this year. Watson is expected to play the full season. He is truly a match-winner having exceptional talent with both bat and ball.
“Khulna Titans is excited to have Shane Watson join the franchise. He is a true champion. He has won many titles for his country and the franchise teams he has represented around the world. His experience and his winning mentality will contribute significantly to the team. Hopefully, Shane will propel us to the title that we have been working so hard for,” said Khulna Titans Managing Director Kazi Inam Ahmed.
Shane Watson’s brilliant performance for CSK in the IPL 2019 final showed how much talent is still left in this player. He was playing like a lone warrior in that match.
In a recent interview, Watson said that he is excited to be part of the franchise and would like to give his best for Titans to raise their standings as they were placed at the bottom of the table in the last edition of the tournament.
“I am super excited to join the Khulna Titans for the upcoming Bangladesh Premier League season. The BPL is a tournament that I have always wanted to play in and now I finally get my chance. There are so many great cricketers playing in the BPL from the local Bangladesh stars to the overseas superstars, so it is going to be very special to finally be a part of it,” Shane Watson said.
“The other very special thing for me is to have the chance to play in front of the incredible Bangladesh cricket loving fans again. The coaching and management team at the Khulna Titans are putting together an amazing squad. Hopefully, we can bring home that title that we have always been looking for,” added the Australian All-rounder in the interview.
We will see a more promising performance of Khulna Titans in the seventh edition of Bangladesh Premier League after addition of Shane Watson to their Squad.
