An honour, says Shane

Calcutta: Australia all-rounder Shane Watson was on Sunday named as the Player of the Tournament at the conclusion of the World T20 at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.

Watson, who collected his trophy at the post-match presentation said: “Although we didn’t quite reach our team goal of winning this tournament, on a personal note it’s an honour to be named as the World T20 2012 Player of the Tournament.

“To be recognised for your achievements is always a nice feeling but I certainly know it would have felt a lot better if we had also been able to lift the trophy.

“Going into the tournament I knew that if we could get our innings off to a good start it would hold us in good shape and it was nice that I could put on a few partnerships.”
