Australia opener David Warner has been ruled out of the rest of the limited-overs series against India due to a groin injury which he suffered during the second ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday, while Pat Cummins has been left out of the rest of the limited-overs tour as a part of his workload management.
Warner has been in top form throughout the series, scoring 69 and 83 runs in the first two ODIs respectively before he hurt himself on Sunday while fielding in the second one-dayer.
The Cricket Australia in a statement said, “David Warner has been sent for scans on his groin after leaving the field early in India’s innings during the second Dettol ODI series, giving Australia their second injury scare in as many matches.”
The swashbuckling opener is now back home and will be looking to get back into the team ahead of the opening Test at Adelaide starting December 17.
D’Archy Short has been named as David Warner’s replacement. The southpaw was the leading run-scorer in two series in the Big Bash League.
India and Australia will play one more ODI on December 2, where India will look to retain some pride, before they go to play the three-match T20 Internationals series starting from December 4.
