IPL resurrected my career, says Watson

October 2, 2008

A fragile all-rounder whose progress has been hampered by umpteen injury breakdowns, Shane Watson believes he has put behind the nightmares and profusely thanks the Indian Premier League (IPL) for resurrecting his stop-start career.

  • Back in the mix again, Watson believes he is through with his quota of slings and arrows and his career is finally back on track largely because of his successful stint in the inaugural IPL earlier this year.

    "It came at the right time for me, no doubt about that," the Aussie said.

    "It was of international level. Playing for the Rajasthan Royals was a great opportunity for me and that too under the great Shane Warne. It was a true testament of your calibre and I was simply privileged to be part of IPL," gushed the all-rounder, who missed the warm-up match against Board President's XI because of viral fever.
