‘Prepare pitches suiting just like Indians do at home’

‘Prepare pitches suiting just like Indians do at home’
‘We are hopeful that the groundsmen are going to make the grounds very conducive to what we do because in India they certainly make sure the conditions are favourable to them,’ Watson told Sydney Radio Station 2 GB during an interview.

Watson, who is making a comeback to local Grade cricket after long lay-off due to calf-muscle injury, feels that the Indian team with its strong batting line-up will find the conditions in Australia challenging.

‘They (India) have got a lot of world-class players, especially in their batting, but over here is a different challenge for them,’ Watson commented.

Watson has started bowling off a few steps in the nets since last Monday and hopes to bat at the top of the order for his Sydney based club team Sutherland this weekend, and he even has his sights set on a possible return to the New South Wales side towards the end of the Matador Cup.

‘If everything goes well this week, I should be available to play a game on Sunday for my club team,’ Watson said.

‘I’m very excited to be back playing. It’s the biggest break I’ve had in three or four years so I’m really itching to get back. It’s been a pretty slow process coming back after standing on the ball (in August).’

Asked his batting order once he is back in the national team, Watson did not hide his desire to have another crack at the top of the order facing the new ball.
