Shane Watson hit by bouncer in practice, leaves ground shaken

Melbourne: Australia all-rounder Shane Watson – hit by a bouncer in the head during training session by James Pattinson – was shaken and walked off the field. Even Pattinson was distraught and went back to the dressing room. Watson was hit on the side of the head when he tried to duck against a short ball.

After Phillip Hughes’ freak accident that led to his death, the Australians have become sensitive about being hit by a bouncer. Even during the first Test against India at Adelaide, when Virat Kohli was hit by a Mitchell Johnson bouncer, all Australians assembled to examine the Indian batsman.
