“I don’t know his diagnosis exactly,” Watson told the Grade Cricketer on Thursday.
“It’s not looking great for him to be available for the last couple of games, which is a big shame because he is an incredibly skillful young batter taking the best bowlers in the world down a lot of the time.”
“It’s a big loss for us to not have him. The last couple of weeks he has been under the weather. Hopefully, he gets back to full health soon, but unfortunately, it’s not going to be in time for the minimum of last two games that we’ve got.”
