Sydney: Skipper Michael Clarke is still unsure about where Shane Watson will fit into the Australian batting order as flies out for a four-test series in India.

Australian vice-captain Watson wants to return as an opener now that he's available only as a specialist batsman, but that would mean breaking up the partnership forged between David Warner and Ed Cowan in recent series against top-ranked South Africa and Sri Lanka.

Clarke says "Obviously, Shane needs to come back into the lineup," but adds: "It's a lot different now that Watto is not bowling. As an allrounder, I think he walks into any team. As a batsman, there is a much bigger pool of players, so we've got to work out what our best batting lineup is."
