Australian Watson out of India tour with hamstring strai

JOHANNESBURG, Sep 21 (Reuters) All-rounder Shane Watson will be replaced in the Australian squad to tour India later this month after being withdrawn today with a hamstring injury.

Watson, who missed the early stages of the Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa with the problem, has a ''low-grade muscular strain'' according to physiotherapist Alex Kountouris.

''The decision has been made for Shane to return to Australia and prepare himself for the upcoming Australian season,'' Kountouris said in a statement.

No decision has yet been made on who will replace Watson.
