Watson was unstoppable throughout the World Twenty20
Australia all-rounder Shane Watson, who won four consecutive Man of the Match awards during the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Twenty20, has been named as the Player of the Tournament as well.
Watson was unanimously chosen by a select group of experts for his outstanding display with both bat and ball throughout the tournament until Australia were eliminated by the West Indies in the semi-finals.
The 31-year-old scored 249 runs from just six innings at an average of 49.80 and also snapped up 11 wickets at an average of 16.00.
After being presented with his award, Watson said: “Although we didn’t quite reach our team goal of winning this tournament, on a personal note it’s an honour to be named as the player of the tournament. Going into the tournament, I knew that if we could get our batting innings off to a good start it would hold us in good shape and it was nice that I could put on a few partnerships with Dave Warner and Mike Hussey and to pick up a few wickets and play a role with the ball was great too.”
