Shane Warne, the Rajasthan Royals' skipper has hinted that all-rounder Shane Watson may not bat at the top of the batting against their IPL 4 match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Jaipur:

With Shane Watson's current form, it would take a brave man to shift his batting position to the lower order, but Rajasthan Royals' skipper Shane Warne has indicated that the Australian all-rounder may not open the batting in Friday's clash against the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Warne tweeted on Wednesday, "Watson is available for our next game - where should he bat? 5 or 6 you think? Him add Taylor for last 10 overs? Or at the top?"

Shane Watson had put the Bangladesh bowling to the sword when he smashed a 96-ball 185 which included a record 15 sixes.

The Rajasthan Royals' openers - Rahul Dravid and Amit Paunikar - have not performed exceedingly well in the tournament so far, and Shane Watson's inclusion might add mettle to that department.
