Watson is expected to be fully fit when the first Test gets underway on February 12

Australia all-rounder Shane Watson has once again found himself in a race against time to become fully fit after it was revealed that he was struggling with a calf injury.

Watson, who is currently in South Africa with the rest of the national team, seemed to bat with no problems during Australia’s net session, but has yet to bowl a single delivery.

“Shane Watson’s had some calf tightness so he won’t bowl today but will bowl again in the next couple of days building up to the Test,” team doctor Peter Brukner said. “He’ll play in the game today and will be fine for the Test match.”
