Shane Watson says it was a privilege to lead Australia

The Australian Cricket Team all-rounder Shane Watson who led the team in the third T20 game against Australia has said that it was a privilege to lead the Australian team although they lost the game in a very close finish and India whitewashed them 3-0 in series.

Their regular T20 captain Aaron Finch was injured and Steven Smith and David Warner would have been next in the line to become captain but had to fly to New Zealand as they will have to play the first One-Day International (ODI) game on 3 February.

Watson got a chance to lead the side and open the innings as Usman Khawaja also played with him. He said that it was also very interesting to bat with Usman Khawaja who got off to a good start but could not score big and got out for less than 50 in last two months.

The other batsmen could not give him so much support but Watson scored 124 which is the second highest individual score in a T20 game and highest score in an innings by an Australian. He said that he started slowly but when he got set he wanted to take full advantage.

Watson said that they have some of the best players in the world and they have got good chances of winning the World T20 Championship for the first time. India, Pakistan, New Zealand and a qualifier will be in Australia's group in the World T20 Championship.
