    Shane Watson has ended his 10-year Test career with Australia after the all-rounder has announced his retirement from the longest format of the game with immediate effect.

    The 34-year-old, who captained his country in one Test and nine ODIs, steps down after another injury setback, struggling with a calf injury sustained in Australia’s 64-run ODI victory at Lords yesterday.
