Winning the Inner Battle

Bringing the best version of you to cricket

Shane Watson is one of Australian cricket’s finest allrounders, representing his country 298 times.

But in September 2015, Shane was contemplating retirement. At 34 he was still in great physical shape, but his form had deteriorated following a tragedy the year before. Mentally, he was in the darkest hole of his life.

A chance meeting with IndyCar champion Will Power changed everything, prompting Shane to work with world-renowned mental performance coach Dr Jacques Dallaire.

It was a decision that would reshape his life. Shane discovered the keys to a consistent mental process that gave him access to his extraordinary skills once more. Across his career he’d had many glimpses of the right mindset, but had so often sabotaged himself as he lacked the understanding, tools and blueprint to repeat them.

Shane would go on to dominate global T20 cricket, testing his new mental process against the best players in the world.
