I find myself nowhere near Kallis: Watson
Humility is a virtue that champion sportspersons are blessed with and Australian all-rounder Shane Watson is no different as he sees himself ‘nowhere’ when compared to South African great Jacques Kallis.

‘When I look at it, I find myself nowhere near Jacques Kallis simply because what he has achieved in all forms of the game,’ said a modest Watson, who has bagged back-to-back man of the match awards for his all-round efforts against Ireland and West Indies. ‘Just in Test cricket to have played over 150 matches (156) and scoring at an average of over 58 (56 plus) and getting more than 250 wickets (280), is something that people just dream of. It is a privilege being out playing in the same era as him. ‘He is a world class T20 player and look at the way he has adapted being a world class all-rounder.’

‘For me, if he is not the best, he will still be among the best couple to have played the game,’ added Watson, paying rich tributes to the South African.
