Sydney, Mar 18: All-rounder Shane Watson will rejoin the Australian Test team for the fourth and final Test against India in Delhi, Cricket Australia said on Monday.
Watson, who was one of the four players sacked for the ongoing third Test in Mohali, had returned home to be with his wife for the birth of their first child. Watson's wife Lee Furlong gave birth to a baby boy.
There were speculations that Watson was contemplating retirement after the axing. But now it is confirmed that he will be back in India.
"Shane Watson will return to the Tour of India and will fly out of Sydney tonight to join the Australian squad in India ahead of the fourth Test, which starts in Delhi on 22 March," a media statement from CA said on Monday.
