Top 10 Would Have Been Legends


3. Shane Watson, Australia
Top 10 Would Have Been LegendsNext name on our list is of Shane Watson. I was once watching highlights of some game on the TV when I saw Shane Watson and couldn’t believe it. Shane Watson was in the cricketing circles from 2002 and if you see him back then, he looks a fragile thin youngster, who likes giving it a little go with the bat and is uses his full force while delivering the ball. Shane Watson was a victim of mismanagement, back stress fractures, hamstring strains, calf problems, hip complaints, a dislocated shoulder and confusion among the Aussie selectors over his place. He was tried as a number 7, and then made to open, sometimes burdened with the role of the third pacer, shifted to middle order, dropped, selected again and then number 3, again number 6 and out he went. Shane Watson could play less than half of the tests in his period as a Test Player. In ODIs he did better, but still a lot more could have been accomplished had he suffered a few less injuries.
