Here’s what he said:
This was incredibly special for me to meet and chat with one of my cricketing hero’s, the Great All-Rounder,

Watson is enjoying his time in Pakistan while representing Quetta Gladiators in the PSL 2020. The 38-year-old has also urged the Australian cricketers to tour Pakistan, saying that he is loving it here and is thrilled to be a part of cricket’s revival in the country.
He further said that Pakistanis are passionate about cricket.
Everyone is very content because of the security that is around and we all feel very safe. We can see how much the people of Pakistan love their cricket and have been starved of live cricket as well. It is a beautiful thing to be a part of.
