Great cartoon! :) The context (@Swaroop) here is that there was a lot of 'trash talk' between the 2 teams during the first test and honestly at times, it overtook the contest (especially in SA's second inning, when Aus thought they could rattle SA's nerves by attacking them verbally). And the point being made here is that, although Watson is not physically fit, he thinks that he is 'fit' for the match as he has worked on his vocabulary and is therefore a good candidate to verbally attack SA players :)

@SwaroopGururaj, there are some question marks over Watson's fitness; so he has been left out of playing 11 for the second Test. Meanwhile, there is a war of words going on between SA and Australia. In Satish's cartoon, Watson is arguing he should be playing despite being unfit since he has been working on his vocabulary and can contribute to the war of words!
