HYDERABAD---Shane Watson has
conceded that he risks being dropped
unless he can find a way to start scor-
ing big runs again, after yet another
disappointing series with the bat.
Watson, who was the acting captain
in the final Test in Delhi, managed only
99 runs at 16.50 during the Indian tour.
This continued a long, unproductive
batting stretch, where in the past two
years he has made 627 Test runs at
24.11, and has not posted a century.
His lack of runs was even more
noticeable during this series because
he had chosen not to bowl in an effort
to stay fit and string together as much
cricket as possible after an injury-
plagued couple of seasons. Before the
series, the captain, Michael Clarke, said
that as a specialist batsman, Watson
would face competition from a much
larger pool of players for a place in the
team, as compared to when he plays
as an allrounder.
"There is no doubt that I need to
score runs," Watson said at the end of
the Indian tour. "As a batsman who's
batting in the top four at the moment,
I need to score runs. Unfortunately,
during this series I've scored nowhere
near the (amount of) runs that I've
wanted to, to be able to contribute to the team's per-
"There's no doubt cricket's a performance-based
game. If I'm not scoring runs or taking wickets, then
you can't expect to be picked. There are no secrets
about it. You can't hide behind anything, apart from
your performance. In this series I've not performed
anywhere near where I've wanted to. I'm looking
forward to being able to continue to play and hopefully
get some continuity with my game over the next
few months, and be in some good touch when the
selectors announce the Ashes squad."
Watson's case for being part of the XI for the first
Ashes Test will be strengthened by the fact that he
is expected to be bowling again by then, and his
medium-pace has a habit of providing breakthroughs
at important times for the Australians. But bowling
has also generally been responsible for the many
injuries that have prevented him from playing even
half the amount of Tests he could have.
He missed all of the 2011-12 home summer of
Tests due to calf and hamstring problems, and played
only half of Australia's home Tests in 2012-13, again
due to a calf injury. However, Watson intends to
slowly start building up his bowling workload during
the second half of the IPL, and hopes to be in a posi-
tion to bowl unrestricted during the Ashes, which
starts in July.
"One thing I have realised is how much I do miss
bowling, and it has been a plan over the last two or
three months to get my body to a position where I
can get back into bowling again, and hopefully hold
together for the cricket we have coming up," Watson
said. "There is no doubt coming here as a specialist
batsman has not worked out anywhere near where
I wanted it to.
"It didn't work in that regard, but in the end I am
an allrounder, I love being an allrounder. At times
it has been hard not to bowl knowing what I can
contribute to the game. I know I won't always be
able to score runs or take wickets, but if I'm an all-
rounder, I've got more [of a] chance to contribute to
the team's performance and success. I have to stay
on top of my body so that I can play the amount
of cricket I want to." (ESPNcricinfo)

Watson admits batting form a concern
DELHI---At the start of the series MS Dhoni was
under the hammer for being the first Indian cap-
tain in 28 years to lose a home series to England,
that too after being blanked out on away series
in England and Australia.
After defeating Australia inside three days and
completing a 4-0 sweep for the Border-Gavaskar
Trophy, Dhoni chose to toss a few hammers towards
the written press after India's six-wicket victory,
but said using the word revenge was all too "con-
fusing." Even after turning around the 0-4 defeat
to Australia in 2011-12, 'revenge' was a word Dhoni
had made it a point to avoid all series. "It doesn't
matter if it's 0-4, 2-2, 2-0, 3-1... I don't like words
like revenge coming out of the series because in
the very next question people talk about the spirit
of the game. So revenge, spirit of the game---the
vocabulary becomes too confusing."
His summary of the series was simpler, "It's
better to say that it was a good series for us. There
are plenty of individuals who did really well, quite
a few bowlers, quite a few batsmen...They got some
exposure, they scored runs in difficult conditions."
The disadvantage of having lost the toss in all
four Tests meant that India had to bat last in three
of the four Tests, but had done enough with the
ball in the third innings to keep the target down
to reasonable numbers.
The Delhi Test may have ended inside three days,
but it was here that India had to chase their highest
target of the series, 155 runs, on the most treacherous
wicket of the four Tests.
