Watson’s relationship with the Rajasthan Royals dates back to IPL 2008 which also helped him make an improbable comeback to international cricket. After being sidelined due to injuries, Watson decided to join the Royals and emerged the Player of the Tournament in the first edition of the tournament. Also known as ‘Watto’, he is an attacking batsman with a solid defense. An athletic fielder and a medium-pacer he can swing the ball and pick up useful wickets.
