How can we possibly have found ourself wanting Shane Watson to get a hundred. He was on 92 and Australia needed eight to win the Champions’ Trophy. Why on earth did we want him to reach three figures?
Seriously, why? This isn’t rhetoric. We actually want an explanation. He’s ridiculously gym-bodied, blonde and always looks like he’s about to cry. We’re not massively keen on any of those qualities. Put them on an Australian cricketer (normal Australians are quite likeable) and that should be a Michelin-starred recipe for loathing a man.
