Shane Watson

I've been very wrong about Shane Watson in the past so no doubt it will happen again, but I'm still not sure he's an international top-rung bowler. A 6th bowler helping to make up the overs perhaps...but he always seems to go for a few, although he does have the happy knack of picking up the odd wicket. England certainly seem to target him whenever he comes on.

Watson proved many wrong when he successfully converted to an opener in Test cricket, so it'll be interesting to see which way his bowling goes. Amazingly as he seems to have been around for ages (although injured), he's only 29 and has plenty of time to influence whether he'll be remembered as a proper all-rounder or a batsman.
