Will Shane Watson force his way back into SA decider?

Posted on 25/02/2014 in Cricket

Shane Watson has given Australia's selectors a headache by returning to fitness ahead of the deciding Test match at Newlands.

The all-rounder missed the first two games of the series with a calf injury, but has had no ill effects from a net session at Port Elizabeth, where South Africa recorded a 231-run win to level the series.

Coach Darren Lehmann said: "As long as he's bowling overs and he's fit, we'd love to have that extra bowler. We'll have to wait and see how that comes along.

"If we have to fit Shane Watson in and someone misses out, they'll be really unlucky."

Lehmann did add the selectors would wait to see whether or not Australia will need a fifth bowler before making the final decision.
