Talismanic Australian cricketer Shane Watson confirmed that he will be coming to Pakistan to take part in the fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) next year.
“I can’t wait to come back to Pakistan and play in season five,” Watson said in a video posted on the PSL’s Twitter account. “I had an amazing experience in Karachi during the last PSL. To be able to connect with the cricket-loving fans in Pakistan and experience Quetta Gladiators winning their first PSL was an amazing experience and one of the highlights of my career.”
Elementary, my dear Watson. 🕵🏻♂
