Shane Watson will return to India for Australia's final Test match in Delhi on Friday.

Cricket Australia have confirmed that Shane Watson will return to India in time for the fourth Test match against India in Delhi.

The 31-year-old was one of four players axed for the third Test for not returning a questionnaire aimed at improving the team's performance on the sub-continent.

India are 2-0 up in the four-match series and look on course to wrap up victory in Mohali, with the tourists currently 79 runs ahead on day five, but struggling on 178-8.

Watson chose to return home with his wife expecting their first child, but revealed that he was "weighing up" his international future.

However, a statement on Cricket Australia's website read that he will fly out to India today in order to take part in the final Test, which starts on Friday.
