CA to call back 'drained' Watson from CLT20 to keep him fresh for Proteas series

Sydney, Oct 15(ANI): Cricket Australia (CA) boss James Sutherland has hinted that all rounder Shane Watson might be called back early from the ongoing Champions League Twenty20 in South Africa in order to give him proper rest before the all important Test series against the Proteas in November.

Sutherland said a decision hadn't been finalised, but it was reasonably well known Watson would fly home before the finals.

"We're concerned about Shane," the Herald Sun quoted Sutherland, as saying.

"His injury record is unfortunate and what that tells us is that we need to monitor and manage him very carefully," he added.

"We're reviewing his load and his circumstance very closely," he said. (ANI)
