Australia all-rounder Shane Watson believes that captain Michael Clarke will score a century in the first Test against India in honour of deceased batsman Phillip Hughes.

Watson’s comments come after Clarke was declared fit for the first Test, which will get underway on December 9 in Adelaide.

“Michael was running around the field with no problems yesterday,” Watson told the Nine Network. “There’ll be no doubt that he’ll be ready to go in such an emotional Test match.

“I’d be extremely surprised if he didn’t peel off another hundred because he’s certainly got a lot to play for, as we all do.”
