Sydney:

Australia allrounder Shane Watson says he expects to end an almost five-month break in a Twenty20 club match on Sunday.

The 33-year-old Watson hasn't played since the Indian Premier League in May, missing Australia's tours to Zimbabwe and the United Arab Emirates because of ankle and calf injuries.

He says "it's been a pretty slow process coming back after standing on the ball" in the training accident that led to his injuries.

Watson says the break has given him "a lot of time to work on other fitness and strengths which I'm going to need and I've worked on a few things with my batting as well. If I'm fit and playing well there's a lot of cricket over the next couple of years."
