Watson wants to be recalled as Oz top order batsman

Melbourne, Tue, 31 Jan 2012 ANI

Melbourne, Jan 31(ANI): Australian all- rounder Shane Watson is hoping to be fully fit to make a comeback as a top order batsman in the squad.


Ruled out of the recently- concluded Test series due to hamstring and calf injuries, Watson,30, said he would be happy to "fit in" the squad in any position, but would prefer to continue to open the batting, and bowl more sparingly.


"Physically up until just recently, I was able to open the batting and bowl. The difference between Ricky and Michael is the way they use me as a bowler," quoted Watson, as saying.


"I would prefer to definitely continue to bat high in the order and keep an eye on my bowling workloads. But there's going to be times and situations in a game where that goes all out the window. It's actually doing what you have to do to be able to win the game," he added.


Australian coach Mickey Arthur, however, is known to favour a conventional all- rounder, while skipper Michael Clarke said:


"Shane is the vice-captain of the team when he's fully fit so I'm pretty sure when he's fit, he'll come back into the team, but we'll have to assess it then. When Watto will be fit, we really don't know, so we'll have to wait and see." (ANI)
