Melbourne: Ambitious Australian opener Shane Watson had spoken to his IPL teammate Rahul Dravid to improve concentration level while batting so that he could convert good starts into big scores just like the Indian Test star.
Watson, only Australian named among 17 nominees for the ICC Cricketer of the Year award, is not happy himself since he has squandered many a good starts. "To get bigger scores is a burning ambition for me. It's something that I really want to be able to get right before the end of my career and being able to capitalise on the good days," said Watson as he prepares for Test series against Sri Lanka.
The burly opener has 15 Test half-centuries and two hundreds in 27 Tests with the highest being 126 against India in Mohali last October.
