Belligerent Shane Watson destroys Hobart Hurricanes with five sixes — WATCH

New Delhi: Australian all-rounder Shane Watson played a belligerent knock of 55 runs to help Sydney Thunder beat Hobart Hurricanes by six wickets in a Big Bash League (BBL) match at Hobart on Sunday.

Watson, 35, hit five sixes and two fours in his 31-ball knock as Thunder chased down Hurricanes’ 161 inside 17 overs.

He posted a 63-run second wicket stand with Ben Rohrer after Kurtis Petterson and James Vince provided a good start to the chase.

Watson retired from international cricket last year, but by the look of his form, he could still walk into any team.

The all-rounder played 59 Tests, 190 ODIs and 58 T20Is for Australia. He is often regarded as one of the most gifted cricketers with ability win matches single-handedly.
