NEW DELHI: Former India opener Gautam gambhir has jumped to the defence of off-colour Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder Shane Watson, saying he would give him four to five more IPL matches to help him regain form.

Gambhir feels it is a bad idea to drop Watson considering he has been a consistent performer and the CSK's batting lineup as a whole is struggling.

"I would never drop Shane Watson, because their entire batting order looks so rusty. Kedar Jadhav looks rusty. Ambati Rayudu looks rusty," Gambhir said in a chat show on ESPNCricinfo.

"I know Shane Watson is not in the best of form, imagine replacing Shane Watson with Ruturaj Gaekwad? Obviously, he is a young, developing cricketer. Or Murali Vijay? I would back Shane Watson for another four-five games." IANS
