Australia all-rounder Shane Watson has expressed that the exclusion of senior spinner Harbhajan Singh in the Indian Test side is surprising.

Meanwhile, Watson confirmed that he will bat at No 4 if all goes well.
 
"If everyone is fit, then yes (No. 4), that's the way the selection is likely to go with Michael and Mickey figuring it out. Considering everything that's happened over the last 12 months, especially, I can see why they might want to go that way.
 
"In the end, I've got as much experience batting in these conditions whether in the middle-order or at the top of the order, so Michael and I will play a very important part in this series in terms of batting in that middle-order because it can be difficult."
 
Asked if the thought of his pregnant wife distracts him Watson said, "Uhhh… possibly, but nothing has been confirmed yet. If she has the baby early, then there will be less chance of me seeing the birth."
