Shane Watson has said the threat of Rajasthan Royals’ expulsion from the IPL did not trouble him and that he was always confident of a happy outcome. The Supreme Court decided not to suspend Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from the IPL, after originally proposing it.

“I’ve really tried not to worry about it, to be honest,” he said here on Sunday. “Rajasthan has been kicked out in the past from the tournament, so you just never know how things are going to pan out. I’ve always been confident things will work out well in the end, and it seems to have worked out that way.”

Rajasthan was expelled from the IPL ahead of the 2011 season before being reinstated. “For me, it would be a huge shame if Rajasthan wasn’t playing this IPL because I certainly love every moment I’ve spent there since it started. But we are on the right side again, thank God.”
