Cricket: Australian board leaves door open for Watson after suspension
SYDNEY (AFP) - Cricket Australia general manager Pat Howard said on Tuesday that the door was still open for Shane Watson to play Tests after the vice-captain returned home following his axing from their next India match.
The 31-year-old was one of four players suspended for one Test after failing to prepare feedback and deliver it to management on how Australia could improve, with the team trailing 2-0 in the series.
Stunned Watson suggested he could quit Test cricket altogether.
Howard said Watson was still in contention, but must start toeing the team line, implying he was not always a team player.
