Melbourne: Shane Watson has conceded he doesn't know where he will fit back in to Australia's Test side after missing all six matches of the home summer due to injury. Watson was on Monday named Australia's best ODI and Twenty20 international player of the past year at Allan Border Medal night in Melbourne, a day after he made his return to the national side.
He captained Australia to a one-day victory over India on Sunday in Sydney, in the absence of the injured skipper Michael Clarke, and opened the batting with David Warner. It was Watson's first game for Australia in more than three months after hamstring and calf problems sidelined him for the Tests against New Zealand and India.
In the meantime, Warner established himself as a Test opener and Ed Cowan proved a solid companion at the top of the order. Warner, Watson and Cowan are all likely to be part of the Test squad that will tour the West Indies in April but it is not clear whether Watson will resume in the opening position or will slot in down the order, which would allow him to take more of a role with the ball.
