“To see the things that he’s done consistently in Twenty20 cricket in all competitions is pretty amazing. I think you really can’t go past Chris.”
Watson was named man of the tournament in the recently concluded ICC World T20 in Sri Lanka for his exploits with both bat and ball.
“I know playing where I do as an opening batsman and bowling the overs that I do that I`m going to have some impact on the game good or bad,” Watson was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald.
“In the end, it’s nice if people do say that, but there’s no doubt that for me, Chris Gayle is one of the most amazing players you’ll ever see’” Watson added.
Watson also believes that Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga is the best bowler in the shortest format of the game.
He termed him a “bowler who’s had a significant impact on games that he has played in all competitions.”
