Shane Watson’s omission from Australia’s ODI squad against India was a major surprise and was something which was not expected. Watson was among the senior most members of the Australian ODI unit, and it was thought that his inputs would be handy when the Kangaroos take on India. Personally, Watson has a great record against India and he has often tormented the Indian bowlers.

Watson however, maintains that he is not too bothered by his removal from Australia’s ODI team. Rather, Watson says, he now wants to focus entirely on the Big Bash League, where he represents the Sydney Thunder.

“Getting dropped from both formats Test and One Day cricket makes that worry go away,” Watson said. “It is more about playing for the(Sydney Thunder than anything now, that is done with the Aussie stuff. “I am over worrying about all that stuff now, the priority for me is playing well in the games that I am in and to contribute. There is plenty of cricket to come in other competitions as well so whatever happens,” he said.

Australia head into the ODI series with a depleted unit, as ace pacer Mitchell Starc is already out of the reckoning with his injury. Flamboyant southpaw David Warner too will miss the last 3 ODI’s of the series as he braces for a paternity leave. The axing of a senior individual like Watson will just add more burden on the inexperienced Australian outfit.

“I am available, but the worry is gone and disappeared after I got dropped from the one-day squad. The more important thing for me is the Thunder here, that is all that matters. Whatever is meant to be is meant to be,” Watson concluded.
