I...did not know he was still playing but well done to him!



After 20 seasons and 745 matches across all formats, Shane Watson has announced his retirement from professional cricket.

The 39-year-old confirmed his playing days are over in a short video from Dubai, where he has spent the past two months playing for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League.

"It all started out as a dream," Watson said on his YouTube channel T20 Stars. "As a young kid saying to my mum as I watched a Test match as a five year old, 'I want to play cricket for Australia'.

"Now as I officially announce my retirement from all cricket, I feel crazily lucky to have lived out my dream and then some.
 
Watto might want to refer that decision :)

Had a couple of good years there where he dominated for Australia in all 3 formats, won a couple of AB medals as well.

Probably didn't have the test career he could have due to injury, but I always though his bowling was underated at Test level, he always managed to get a wicket when we needed it. He was one of our better all rounders of recent times, but his body constantly let him down

He has had the dream cricketing life, travelling the world playing T20. Good luc to him, has had a career he should be proud of.
