The versatile right-hander played a vital role with his lively seamers in Brisbane and worked well in tandem with fellow pacers to trouble the Indian batsmen. “We think Shane Watson did a really good job for us with the ball,” Lehmann was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald yesterday.

“Obviously, we’d like him to make more runs but he did a good job with the ball and he can do that all-rounder role for us. That’s why we went with a batter.”
