Australian all-rounder Shane Watson is unsure about his participation in the final of the ongoing One-Day International tri-series.

Watson was ruled out of the game against England on Friday and also the washed out game against India on Monday due to hamstring injury.

However the 33-year-old all-rounder is confident of his recovery before the World Cup.

"It is nothing too serious, but more so a precaution just to make sure it settles down over this week and be ready to go again by Sunday in Perth," he said.

"If not then, the practice matches leading into the World Cup," he added.

Australia are in the finals of the tri-series having won all their games except the washed out game against India on Monday.

Meanwhile, it is still unsure whether Michael Clarke will make a return to the World Cup as he has been recovering from hamstring surgery he underwent last month.

Clarke has been given until 21st February to prove his fitness.

Australia are scheduled to play warm-up games against India and United Arab Emirates (UAE) ahead of the World Cup.
