Watson could take over as Australian captain

The Australian Cricket captain Michael Clarke says Shane Watson is likely to take over as skipper if Clarke can't play in the 4th test against India.

Clarke re-injured his back during Australia's defeat in the third test which gave India the series win.

Watson was controversially suspended for that match for not completing a homework assignment, but now he could sail back into the side to take the captaincy.
