IPL 2017 : Shane Watson Role in RCB Changed, Says Will Miss Kohli and Rahul


Shane Watson Role in RCB: It will be a tough IPL season for Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) with Kohli and Rahul out of the squad. Shane Watson says, Of course it is not ideal to have Rahul and Kohli out. But he also say that his role has changed and he loves challenge. Rahul and Kohli has shoulder injuries. Kohli will be out for first two weeks of the season and Rahul is already ruled out of the series.

Shane Watson is a power house who can turn the table around to the team he play. He is an all-rounder and has taken 20 wickets in the previous season of IPL from RCB side and a hard 176 runs in the entire season. The deep batting line up in RCB helps the team to chase any par score or set the biggest targets for the opposition.

Shane Watson Role in RCB Changed with Responsibility:

Shane Watson talking about the season and the players said that, “We have Sarfaraz [Khan], Mandeep [Singh], Kedar [Jadhav] and Sachin Baby. We will definitely miss those guys, but with the depth we have we should be okay. I think my role will probably change a little bit, which is great.”

He also added that, “I have more chances of batting up the order which is what I have done during the majority of my career. I am ready to bat anywhere, but if I get a role to bat up the order, I will certainly enjoy doing that. Bowling was something which really turned things around in the second half. We have got similar bowlers and have added Tymal Mills. So I am excited about what we are going to do.”

“To be honest it can’t get much worse than what we did last year [in the first half]. We were so far behind. But we learnt a lot as a group from what really happened. So I am very confident that we will hit the ground running better this year.”
