The Australian all-rounder, Shane Watson said on Monday that he is keen to make his return to cricket after being ruled out by an injury. He is set to play in a Sydney club cricket match in this weekend. The 33-year old Australian all-rounder said that he has not played any form of major Cricket since the Indian Premier League (IPL) in May after which he was being ruled out of Australia’s tours of Zimbabwe and also to United Arab Emirates. There were complications on him from stepping on a ball during the training session.

It was an ankle injury originally which sidelined Watson for the ODI tri-series in Zimbabwe. After then, related calf soreness kept him out of Australia’s international fixtures. And thus he was out of the Australian squad and was even absent in Australia’s away series against Pakistan in UAE. Watson also said that he was on his way back to full fitness and he plans to play in a T20 game with his Sutherland club on Sunday.

He also assured of the fact that if everything goes well on his part, he should be available to play a game on Sunday for his club team. He is also very excited to be back playing. He said that it is the biggest break, he ever had in three or four years and thus he is at the moment itching to get back to cricket. He said that it was quite a slow process to come back after standing on the ball.

He also said that he is prepared for the upcoming hectic schedule of cricket starting with the Tests against India and also the World Cup. He also added that is mentally as well as physically ready for it. He said that the break has been refreshing for him. He also added that this break was much needed for him. He prepared himself mentally and refreshed himself completely.

He also added that it has been a great break and it had given him a lot of time to work on other fitness and strengths which he is going to need and he had worked on a few things with his batting as well.
