In the third ODI on Wednesday, the Australian team will take the field without its star batsman David Warner. David Warner has been ruled out of the limited overs series due to injury during fielding in the second ODI. Now Warner is not looking to play in the first Test also. But head coach Justin Langer has said that he hopes Warner will be fit until the pink ball test.
The first Test between the two teams will be played from 17 to 21 December at the Oval in Adelaide. Langer said, “He has a groin injury and he has told me that it hurt a lot. It seems that someone shot him with a gun. He was in a lot of trouble in the dressing room too. We Have just arrived in Canberra and so now we will not see them for five-six days “
Langer has admitted that Warner is going through a lot of pain. He said, “He will be fit for the first Test match and I hope so. But he is a professional player who will do everything possible to prepare for it. Let’s see what happens, but this much is certain They are at a loss. “
If Warner does not fit until the pink ball test, then Joey Burns and Will Pukowski can be sent to start the innings for the first Test. Langer said, “It is no surprise that I feel a little relieved now. We have won a few matches and I don’t have to worry about who will be selected in the Test team.”
A four-Test series is to be played between India and Australia. The Australian team is trying to strengthen its claim for the final of the ICC Test Championship by naming this series.
