Australia names 'returning' Watson in 13-man squad for Adelaide Test
Sydney, Nov 16(ANI): All rounder Shane Watson has been named in a 13-man Australian squad for the second Test against South Africa in Adelaide on Thursday.
Chairman of selectors John Inverarity announced the same squad that was selected for the first Test in Brisbane on Friday, and added that Watson would be given every chance to prove his fitness and take his spot in the side as an allrounder, following suggestions he would not be chosen solely as a batsman.
Watson missed out on the first Test draw due to a calf injury and constant speculation has surrounded his availability for the second Test starting at the Adelaide Oval.
"He has to be fit to perform," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Inverarity, as saying
"We are hoping he will be able to bowl. But if he is not fit to bowl he would not be fit to run between the wickets and run in the field," he added. (ANI)
