Cricket Australia has ruled Shane Watson, Nathan Bracken and James Hopes to be medically unfit to play in the IPL II in South Africa where they were to join Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab, respectively, from this week.

After being examined by team doctor Trefor James, the trio was advised to rest ahead of a busy schedule. “[Bracken] was keen as mustard to play with Bangalore,” Bracken’s agent Rob Horton said. “He’s disappointed, but he can also see the bigger picture here.” The other two also echoed similar sentiments.
