Mohali: Shane Watson, who will retire post the World T20, has picked the one Test match suspension on the 2013 tour of India as one of the lowest moments in what has otherwise been an illustrious career.

Watson was sent back home alongside teammates James Pattinson, Mitchell Johnson and Usman Khawaja for not doing the 'homework' assigned to them post the defeat in the Hyderabad Test.
Australia were eventually whitewashed in the four-match series. Asked whether it was the lowest point of his career, Watson chose to see the funny side of what happened in 2013.
"It is a good guess and it was here in Mohali. The good thing is that we were staying in a hotel in Chandigarh and I have got bad memories of one of those rooms. It surely is not a nice memory. Being suspended for a Test for not doing the homework that I didn't realise I had to do," Watson quipped drawing laughter from the media persons.
