Australian opener David Warner is looking for quick recovery to make himself available in time for the four-match Test series against India starting next month.
The left-handed batsman hurt a groin tear while fielding during the second One Day International (ODI) against India on Sunday.
Warner has been ruled out of the remainder limited overs and substituted in the squad by D’Arcy Short.
Cricket Australia also announced that fast bowler Pat Cummins will sit out the remaining white-ball matches to reserve his fitness for the Test series.
Justin Langer, Australia’s coach said,
Warner and Cummins’ timely return will be crucial for the team’s ‘most important’ home series. “Pat and Davie are critical to our plans for the Test Series,”
“Davie will work through his injury rehab and in Pat’s case it is important all of our players are managed well to keep them mentally and physically fit. The priority for both is being fully prepared for one of the biggest and most important home Test Series we have played in recent years,” Langer added.
The two teams will face each in the first test of the Australian summer at Adelaide Oval on December 17.
