Watson faces hamstring test

Shane Watson will undergo a net session at The Gabba tomorrow to test his injured hamstring he sustained during a domestic match over the weekend.

John Buchanan told media that the injury is not as bad as first thought but wants Watson to bowl at perhaps 60 percent tomorrow to make a step in right direction.

If Watson is unable to play, Michael Clarke will come into the starting lineup to bat at six.

Buchanan hinted that Stuart Clark was in a prime position to claim the fourth bowling stop and had moved ahead of the competition.

The first Test starts this coming Thursday.
