David Warner ruled out for final and third ODI and three-match T20I series against India.
Warner limped off the field during the second innings of the second ODI against India after exhibiting discomfort while fielding on Sunday, 29 November. Scans later revealed that he suffered a groin strain.
The left-hander was enjoying a brilliant run, registering scores of 69 and 83 in the first two ODIs against India. He has now been ruled out of the third and final ODI and the three T20Is that follow. Short, who was on standby, has been named as Warner’s replacement for the T20I leg.
Australia head coach Justin Langer said that Warner would utilise the time to recover, with an aim to get fit in time for the first Test, starting 17 December. D’Arcy Short will join the Australia squad as a replacement for the injured David Warner for the three-match T20I series against India.
