Spin legend Shane Warne Tuesday congratulated former Australian teammate Shane Watson for being chosen the new captain of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchisee Rajasthan Royals.


The 32-year-old all-rounder was named the captain Monday.

"Congrats to Watto on becoming Captain of the Royals, good luck to you & the boys in #IPL 7," tweeted Warne.

Warne also shared a photograph along with the tweet where both he and Watson are wearing Royals jerseys.

Warne had led the Jaipur-based outfit to the IPL title in its inaugural edition in 2008.
