Watson speaks highly of ‘world class’ Malik
SYDNEY: Australian cricketer Shane Watson, in a tweet on Saturday, showered praise on veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik and described him as a proven performer in all forms of the game.
Upon being asked about Malik’s ability as an all-rounder by a Twitter user, Watson said that apart from being a great competitor on the field, Malik is also a wonderful person off it.
"Shoaib Malik is and has been for a long period of time, a world class performer in all formats. He is a very dependable batsman against all types of bowling in all conditions and he has great skill and guile with his bowling. And to go with this, he is a super sweet guy," Watson tweeted.
Watson and Malik recently squared off against each other in the now-suspended fifth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL).
While making a comeback in the Pakistan’s Twenty20 International (T20I) side earlier this year, the Sialkot-born all-rounder scored a magnificent match-winning fifty in the first T20I against Bangladesh in Lahore. - Agecnies
