One after the other cricketer of the Australian team coming to play in India is injured. David Warner was injured during the second Test. Matt Renshaw replaced him in that match. He was uncertain in the next two Tests as well. Cricket Australia announced on Tuesday that he will miss the final two Tests too.

David Warner is finall returning to the country. The Australian left-handed opener may return to India before the one-day series. Initially, while batting, a ball came and hit Warner’s left elbow. While batting in the second Test, Mohammad Siraj’s ball hit him on the head. That’s why Reeshaw was brought in instead of Warner. The hand injury was initially thought to be minor. But later it is understood that he i suffering from a bone injury. It will take some more time to heal completely.

Travis Head to replace David Warner as the opener

However, Australia is not taking any batsman in place of Warner. Travis Head is already back in the team. Therefore, its he who will open in place of Warner. Moreover he had already played the role of the opener in the second innings in the Delhi Test. However, Travis Head opened only twice in domestic cricket.

The third Test is at Indore, at the Holkar Stadium. Cameron Green is already back in the Aussie camp to play there. Jos Hazlewood was already out of the team due to injury. Green can be seen in his place. Mitchell Starc has also recovered. With skipper Pat Cummins returning home, the experienced left-arm pacer can take his place. Cummins is likely to return before the indoor Test though. Mitchell Swepson has also returned to the team. Australia may release some of the team’s cricketers due to their return. They may be sent to play domestic cricket. However, the board has not announced that decision yet. However, the absence of Warner won’t probably affect the Australian. His scores weren’t positive enough for his team.
