Former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson lashed out at his country’s cricket board over the new rules of the Big Bash League (BBL). Watson described these new rules as a wrong way to juggle and make the T20 event a success.
The board recently introduced 3 new rules for the 10th edition of the league. These include Power Surge, X Factor and Bash Boost. BBL is scheduled to begin on 10 December.
Watson said – that’s not right
Watson said that I read today that BBL is adopting some new tricks for the tournament. This is not right. This is the wrong way to re-stage the tournament. Wrote in a blog post on my T20 website that I cannot understand why when some damage to the wheel is not done, why some people are trying to rebuild the wheel.
Said goodbye to international cricket in 2016
Watson decided not to play professional cricket after the IPL this year. At the same time, Watson retired from international cricket in 2016. The Australian all-rounder has scored 3731 runs in 59 Tests and 5757 runs in 190 ODIs. He has 1462 runs in 58 T20s. Watson has taken 75 in Tests, 168 in ODIs and 48 wickets.
Neesham also took a pinch
New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham also quipped about these new rules. He made a tweet about the new rule X factor. He wrote that how much X factor should the player have so that he can get a chance to play even if the team is not in the playing eleven.
