Sydney:

Australian allrounder Shane Watson has been named in the New South Wales squad for the 2009/10 season, Cricket NSW said on Monday.

Watson, who is struggling with a knee problem ahead of Australia's Ashes series opener in England next week, has switched states from Queensland and is one of 10 NSW players contracted by Cricket Australia.

With many players likely to be on international duty the next Australian summer, NSW will again look to its younger players, who gained valuable 1st XI experience last season.

"Having 10 players contracted to Cricket Australia will test the squad's depth however I am delighted that we are still able to name such a talented contract list," Cricket NSW chief executive David Gilbert said.

Among the NSW players with Cricket Australia contracts are: Doug Bollinger, Nathan Bracken, Stuart Clark, Michael Clarke, Brad Haddin, Nathan Hauritz, Phillip Hughes, Simon Katich, Brett Lee and Watson.
