Rajasthan Royals captain Shane Watson on Friday said that he loves playing on Indian turf since overseas players get lot of support from die-hard Indian cricket fans and it is always motivating and encouraging to play in front of large crowd.

Amity students carrying flags of Rajasthan Royals, fully gripped with Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 fever, cheered aloud when former India captain and Rajasthan Royals mentor Rahul Dravid entered the university campus here accompanied by his team members including Watson, a spokesperson said.

The atmosphere became lively when Dravid, Watson, Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Stuart Binny and Tim Southee interacted with the enthusiastic students here at Amity’s 110 acre Campus.

Dravid expressed his happiness to see the level of overwhelming support of Amity students and re-called his own college days. “Amity University and Rajasthan Royals both identify and promote young talent and it is very encouraging to launch Amity Special Sports Scholarships today,” said Dravid.

Watson thanked Amity University for its support and long association with Rajasthan Royals. He recalled several occasions when he interacted with Amity University and was impressed by their energy and talent.

Responding to a question posed by a student, Watson said, he loves to play on Indian turf because overseas players get lot of support from Indians, who are die-hard cricket fans and it is always motivating and encouraging to play in front of large gathering. Watson also obliged the audience by singing a song while strumming the guitar.

Amity Sports Scholarships for the deserving students of the University who have played at the national and state level were launched by the hand of Dravid.
