Allrounder Shane Watson has welcomed his shift to No 4 spot in Australia's test batting order, saying it will allow him to make greater contributions with bat and ball.
Watson will drop from No 3 to No 4 for the first test against Sri Lanka at Hobart's Bellerive Oval starting Friday in a reshuffle prompted by the retirement of Ricky Ponting and the recall of opener Phil Hughes.
Watson said Wednesday that a move down the order is a chance to score more freely. "Batting slightly lower, the ball is slightly older - the wicket's had a little bit more sun on it.''
He said the move was positive for his bowling, to "be able to really contribute that little bit more.''
