SHANE Watson has stood down from his role as Australian vice-captain across all formats of the game.

 

Watson struggled for form in Australia's recent 4-0 Test series loss in India and was disciplined for failing to complete a team assignment.

 

Watson said he was making the move to concentrate on his own form.

 

Watson said he felt he still had a lot to contribute to Australian cricket.
