Australian cricketer Shane Watson, in a tweet on Saturday, showered praise on veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik and described him as a proven performer in all forms of the game.

Upon being asked about Malik’s ability as an all-rounder by a Twitter user, Watson said that apart from being a great competitor on the field, Malik is also a wonderful person off it.

Watson and Malik recently squared off against each other in the now-suspended fifth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL).

While making a comeback in the Pakistan’s Twenty20 International (T20I) side earlier this year, the Sialkot-born all-rounder scored a magnificent match-winning fifty in the first T20I against Bangladesh in Lahore.
