Aus vs Ind: Warner to undergo scan after sustaining groin injury in 2nd ODI
Team India are currently in Australia for a full-fledged tour and the first two ODIs have been over already. The hosts have been thoroughly dominant so far as they won the first two games with relative ease. Aussies won the ODI opener by 66 runs before winning the second game by 51 runs at the SCG.
Rightly so, they won the series by 2-0 and are just one victory away from whitewashing the visitors. On the other hand, India had no other option than surrendering at the hands of Australia. Though they gave their best, they couldn’t find a way to win the match.
Steve Smith was named the player of the match once again for his batting masterclass. He scored yet another century to help Australia post a humongous total. The likes of David Warner (83), Marnus Labuschagne (70), Aaron Finch (60) and Glenn Maxwell (63) added value to the team’s total.
David Warner to undergo scans after a groin injury
In a shocking development, Australia opener David Warner got injured while fielding during the match against India in the second ODI at the SCG. The star cricketer put in a full dive to his left to save a certain boundary but he landed awkwardly and sustained a groin injury.
The team physio immediately attended him after the incident and the cricketer walked off the turf. Meanwhile, a Cricket Australia (CA) spokesperson confirmed that David Warner will undergo scans for detailed assessments as reported by ESPNCricinfo. The extent of the injury is known yet.
“It was a perfect performance with the bat. There was no extra talk or game plan. Very pleased to wrap it up in two games and win the series. Quicker innings from me would’ve been better, but it’s a bit of a trade-off and I think we set the foundation.
Smithy was incredible as usual, and Warner got it off the middle every time as well. Moises bowled really well defensively including his cutters, and as Virat said, we got a bit of a blueprint from Hardik, by taking the pace off the ball,” Aaron Finch said at the post-match presentation.
The third and final ODI will be a dead rubber for India and for Australia, it is just another match. They will be eager to whitewash the visitors. The match is scheduled to be held at Manuka Oval in Canberra on December 2
