Some people can’t help but give.
Shane Watson is one of those people; he is forever giving us little gifts.
But this one was too much.
We have nothing to give him, and giving us the present of a comedy run out in the 90s is just about the best present any cricket fan could ever receive from a cricketer they don’t like.
Thanks to his cartoonish shriek at Gayle the rest of the world now hates him in as much as Australians have since not long after Shane Lee was last picked.
So this runout present isn’t just a gift for Australians, he is giving it to the world.
The run out itself was his merry Christmas, but putting his foot down a millisecond after the Krab, that was a happy new year.
How can you not like Shane after giving us so much?
No one gives better face when going out in the 90s.
And my personal favourite moment was when he was waiting for the decision. He was looking at the ground, ignoring the krab’s hopes of discussions, and he was resting his bat upside down on his leg. Then he was told, and that face, oh that little face, just for a moment I almost felt sorry for him.
It was a short moment, but it was real.
