Shane Watson forgets he may have to bowl to Gayle again

December 21, 2021

I can never remember a time when Watson was mistaken for a Harvard professor.

But goading Chris Gayle, what sort of idiot does that?

He lost 15% of his match fee for it, but his real punishment should be opening the bowling anytime Australia plays the Windies.

There is no sound of the scream in this clip, count yourself lucky, as Watson’s roar was more like a camp version of the Wilhelm scream.

I can’t find it on youtube, but on one of the stump mics you can hear an Australian player say something like, “that was the best wicket celebration ever”.

Without seeing that player’s face, I’d like to think he was taking the piss.
