Shane Watson to make long awaited return.
Australian all-rounder Shane Watson is set to make a long awaited return to the field this Sunday, as he appears for his club side Sutherland at Coogee Oval. Watson has not hit a ball in anger since the IPL in May of this year and was subsequently ruled out of tours to Zimbabwe and UAE following complications resulting from stepping on a ball a training.
Watson is expected to bat in the top order for Sutherland against St George in the second match of the triple header at Coogee Oval which also features the home town heroes and current Kingsgrove Sports Twenty20 Champions Randwick Petersham.
Randwick Petersham will kick off the days play at 9.00am when they take on St George in the first of three matches and will follow up the 9.00am start with a 3.30pm match versus Sutherland.
The Randy Petes are off to a flyer in this seasons Kingsgrove Sports Twenty20 Cup sitting equal top in the Sydney Sixers Conference with 8 points alongside Manly Cricket Club. However the club believes that this weekends fixtures will be a tough affair and there are no guarantees in progressing through to the knockout stages the following week at Drummoyne Oval.
