Mirpur: Mar 31, 2014

With the recent controversies troubling Rajasthan Royals, their star all-rounder Shane Watson chose not to think too much about it. Watson has been a central figure at Rajasthan and is set to captain them at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. However, last week, the Supreme Court of India had recommended the expulsion of the franchise from the IPL, before allowing them to feature in the IPL 2014.

Despite that shock, Watson was quite confident that things will settle in the end, after all this isn’t the first time Rajasthan have almost been ousted from the IPL.

Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the ICC World T20 2014, Watson said, “I tried not to worry about it to be honest. Rajasthan has been kicked out in the past from the tournament so you never know how things will pan out. I am very confident things will work out well in the end, which it seems to have worked out that way.

Watson can attribute a change in his career to his stint in the IPL. In 2008, he was the Player of the Tournament and that facilitated his call-up into the Australian team after a while in wilderness. “For me personally it would have been a huge shame if Rajasthan wasn’t playing this IPL. I certainly love every moment I have spent there,” Watson concluded.

The IPL 2014 is all set to begin on April 16 with the first leg being played in the United Arab Emirates.
