The stand-in captain says even Brad Haddin made mistakes

Shane Watson defends Bancroft's wicket-keeping skills

Shane Watson, who was stand-in captain in the third T20 against India has defended the debutant wicket-keeper Cameron Bnacroft as he said that very experienced keepers like Brad Haddin also used to do mistakes and overall youngsters did a good job.

Haddin has criticised the decision to include the rookie keeper as he said that he missed an easy chance of stumping of Suresh Raina who went on to win the match for his side by scoring 48 runs in the third clash which made India first ever side to whitewash Aussies at home.

Watson said that Bancroft did a good job for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League (BBL) so he deserved a chance and took my balls very well but it was a bad bounce so he could not collect the ball and missed the stumping so he should not be criticised.

The two-time defending champions Perth Scorchers had stunned the eventual champion Sydney Thunder in group stage of the BBL this season. Shane Watson was playing for Thunder but they could not do much against Bancroft who played brilliant innings in that match.

Bancroft was given man of the match award for scoring 72 runs and doing one stumping, taking one catch in that match. Watson praised that performance as well and said that he did a great job with the bat in that match so it was not wrong decision to give him chance.
