Watson determined to eradicate LBW 'threat' ahead of winter Ashes

Melbourne, Nov 17 (ANI): Australian all-rounder Shane Watson is reportedly determined to eradicate the threat of leg-before wicket (LBW), which has been responsible for 30 percent of his Test dismissals including four in the recent Ashes tour.

Every cricketing day of Watson's career now starts with the player working in the nets to get over the LBW threat, which is an added arsenal to arch-rivals England's stocks.

According to Telegraph.com.au, Watson said that he works on the LBW issue every time he trains, adding that the start of every session is working on specific drills to get him in a better position.

Aware that England would be targeting his fragility against the LBW as plan A, Watson however, said that he is getting better than before, adding that even though he would not be completely able to eradicate the issue, he knows that he is consistently getting in better positions to try and eliminate it.
