Brisbane, May 9 (ANI): Injury prone Australian all-rounder Shane Watson insists he has only a minor groin strain and will be fit for next month’s Twenty20 World Cup in England.

The Queenslander also hopes to be available for selection in the following Ashes Test series against England.

Watson injured his groin while batting in the Twenty20 loss to Pakistan in Dubai on Thursday.

He said he expected to be fully fit within a couple of weeks and starting to bowl by that time as well.

According to news.com.au, Watson was fined for dissent, along with acting captain Brad Haddin, following Thursday’s match.

Haddin said he wasn’t proud of his actions and had allowed his emotions to get the better of him at the time. (ANI)
