Sydney: Jan 29, 2013

Shane Watson has been working out with batting coach Mark O’Neill to sharpen his batting technique and ensure that he is ready to face the Indian spinners.

“I’ve been developing a few different game plans to be able to try and combat the spin,” Watson was quoted as saying by Sydney Morning Herald.”

“There’s no doubt that is one of the key factors to having success over there is playing well against the spin as well as the reversing ball.”

“I’ve been working on a few technical things as I always am to continue to evolve my game.”

“I certainly made the most of my time out, coming back to really try and nut a few of my technical things out as well to give me the best to be able to score consistent runs wherever I play.”

The first Test between India and Australia starts on February 22 at Chennai.

The 31-year old will start preparing for the upcoming tour of India by appearing in a domestic one-day clash for New South Wales.

Watson, who is making a return from calf injury, is hoping to be back to play couple of grade games on weekend.

The Test vice-captain has been left out from the opening two matches between Australia and West Indies, on Friday and Sunday at WACA.

“There’s grade cricket on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. There’s plenty of cricket around,” Watson said.

“I just want to hopefully be fit enough to play any cricket that’s available.  I’m as confident as I possibly can be [in my body],” he concluded.
