Shane Watson likely to be fit for first Ashes Test
Australia hope Shane Watson will be fit for the first Ashes Test against England after scans on his hamstring revealed only a low-grade muscle strain.
The pivotal all-rounder, who hurt himself in last weekend's one-day international against India in Bangalore, will have "intense treatment" in Sydney to try to regain fitness to face England in Brisbane on November 21.
Australia physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said: "It goes without saying that Shane and the medical team will be doing everything possible to get him fit and available for selection ahead of the first Test."
