Mohali: Despite a miffed Shane Watson contemplating quitting Test cricket, Australian captain Michael Clarke on Wednesday expressed hope that the vice-captain would return to India for the fourth and final Test in Delhi.

After Watson and three of his colleagues - pacemen James Pattinson and Mitchell Johnson, and batsman Usman Khawaja - were axed from the team for the third Test because of their failure to complete a task set by the coach Mickey Arthur, the allrounder returned to Sydney.

His return coincided with his wife expecting their first child. Before leaving India, Watson had said he would weigh up his options and take a call on his Test cricket future.
