Reckon Watson's place will be unde serious scrutiny after the series, assuming he recovers his fitness.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Watson will have to be in terrible form for about 2 years before they consider dropping him.

More to the point even when he wasn't scoring runs he was contributing with the ball - he hasn't been a passenger.

Fact is, whether Watson's performances have been good enough or not, Furball's the only person in the world who actually doesn't think they have been so unless he's on the selection panel, it's not going to happen. A more accurate post would've been "Reckon I'll be calling for Watson's head after the series, assuming he recovers his fitness."

'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

Cummins seems to be quite a find from the matches he has played in. Great pace at such a young age
That's precisely what I'm getting at with Watson. He scored 50 which looks good for his average, but his innings didn't really do much in terms of either rescuing the Test for Australia or even setting Australia up to potentially win it, something Watson does far too often. And Ponting and Clarke could at least point to getting absolute beauties from Anderson early on in their innings. Watson had done the hard work before throwing it away, and exposed the lower order to a ball that was barely 30 overs old.
