New Delhi: Australia’s injury woes have continued to worsen with veteran opener David Warner set to miss the remainder of the Test series against India due to an elbow injury.
Warner was in the wars when he hurt his elbow while batting during Australia’s first innings in the second Test in Delhi and the left-hander was substituted out of the match with concussion.
The concussion wasn’t the only concern for Warner, as scans confirmed a hairline fracture of his elbow and the 36-year-old will return home to Australia to recoup.
“David Warner has been ruled out of the Test tour of India and will return home,” a Cricket Australia statement read.
“Warner was struck on the elbow in the second Test in Delhi and sustained a hairline fracture.
“After further assessment, he will require a period of rehabilitation which will preclude any further involvement in the remainder of the Test series.
“It is currently anticipated that he will return to India for the three One-Day Internationals which follow the Test Series,” the statement added.
