Chennai: New South Wales coach Anthony Stuart on Monday revealed that it is under Cricket Australia's instructions that Shane Watson's bowling is being used sparingly in the Champions League T20.
"Shane is just coming off the Test series in Sri Lanka. He bowled some good spells down there and probably more in a Test series than he has for quite some time. Shane's had a history of injuries early in his career and we got a direction from Cricket Australia that they didn't want him to bowl," Stuart informed ahead of his team's CLT20 group league match against Chennai Super Kings.
He further added: "Straight up after this series, they have the series in South Africa and then they're back in Australia to play New Zealand and then India. He's (Watson) going to have a big workload this summer. We don't have any issues with Shane not bowling."
