A wise man once said “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain”. This seems to be quite true for many cricketers out there. In our series ‘If Not Cricket’ we bring to you the next player for whom music is beyond a mere passion.
It is none other than the Rajasthan Royals captain Shane Watson. This Queenslander is a self-confessed music aficionado. Shane Watson also addressed as ‘Watto’ (fictional character in the Star Wars universe) by friends, takes music very seriously.
He has been playing the guitar for the past seven years now and finds it to be a great stress buster when on tour. Watson turned to music when he was going through a rough patch in his cricket career and ever since then, music has been his fuel to soar up to new heights.
One can come across many music videos of this cricketer online. He also performed Al Green’s Stand by Me this year for the IPL 7 opening ceremony in Abu Dhabi.
