Australian batsman Shane Watson admits he will not be able to bowl if selected for the second Test against South Africa


However, the Australian vice-captain is not sure if this is to satisfy the voters, with the game in Adelaide on Thursday.

The road bowl in training yesterday and gave no indication when it is back in a bowl for a small calf strain he. Ever since the first drawn Test in Brisbane

"Right now, every day is trying through and hope my calf is progressing very well," Watson said after training with the team yesterday, some in Adelaide.

"I have to do what we can expect going well, but if not, I hope it will be good for the next two weeks.

"Right now the most important thing is being able to run continuously, without injury.

"Bowling is released. For me only able to run and do the skills I need to do, and be able to start playing drums."

There were conflicting reports about whether Watson is a drummer should be considered.

Early last week, high performance manager Pat Howard says Watson is considered only if I could bowl.

However, when President John Inverarity selectors announced the team of 13 men on Friday, Watson said he would be considered only as a drummer.

However, all parameters are as stringent Inverarity think Watson could not answer.

The most likely outcome is that Rob Quiney play again as number three batsman Watson with the third goal in Perth, starting in 11 days.
