Profile

A right-hand opener, Bill Watson scored a hundred in his second first-class match against MCC at Sydney in 1954-55. He won selection for the final Test of that series, also at the SCG, making 18 and 3, and that earned him a place on the tour of West Indies which followed. He played a further three Tests in the Caribbean without any success, although he made some good scores in first-class matches.
