Australia‘s Shane Watson said that Twenty 20 cricket brought out the ‘freedom’ in him as he maintained that the ultra-short format of the game was fickle in comparison to One-Day International (ODI) cricket where players could have good or bad days depending on the situation.


Watson was addressing the media ahead of the second T20I against South Africa at Durban and also emphasized on the importance of big hitting and bowling at the death in T20 cricket.


Watson said that T20 cricket was more intense that Test match cricket and added that players needed to switch gears when moving from one format of the game to another.


Watson concluded by saying that the current series against South Africa was ideal preparation for the side ahead of the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh later this year with the team also having a few warm-up matches scheduled before the start of the tournament.
