Shane Wat­son un­der scan­ner in Mo­hali Test


All eyes would be set on Aus­tralian vice cap­tain Shane Wat­son dur­ing the third Test match against In­dia in Mo­hali, as the veteran all rounder has failed to per­form in the first two Test matches.

Wat­son hasn`t scored a Test hun­dred since his 126 in Mo­hali in Oc­to­ber 2010, and he hasn`t fired a big ei­ther in this se­ries.

Wat­son came to In­dia last month aim­ing to prove his crit­ics wrong that he couldn`t com­mand a reg­u­lar place in the side as a spe­cial­ist bats­man, hav­ing an­nounced he won`t bowl in this se­ries as he re­gains bowl­ing fit­ness fol­low­ing in­jury.

A bats­man of ob­vi­ous tal­ent, the two-time Al­lan Bor­der Medal­list has dom­i­nated short­form cricket but alarm­ingly has failed to turn half- cen­turies into hun­dreds in Tests, with a strike- rate of two cen­turies af­ter reach­ing the 50-mark 21 times.
