Shane Watson in doubt for tri-series final due to hamstring

Sydney: Star all-rounder Shane Watson is unsure if he’ll be ready in time for Australia’s tri-series final in Perth. Watson sat out of both last Friday’s One-day International (ODI) against England and the washed-out Australia Day clash against India with a tight hamstring.
