Remember that in the 2005 Glenn McGrath stepped on a ball and wasn’t the same for the Ashes campaign. Now this year Watson and Martyn have a slight injury concern although it seems that both are being nursed and should play:
Shane Watson threw a scare into Australia’s first Test squad when he left the field with a hamstring problem during Queensland’s one-day game against Western Australia at the WACA. Watson, who was picked to bat No. 6 against England, mouthed “ow” after feeling the pain in his delivery stride of the first ball of the 32nd over.
