David Warner set to return in field following injury scare
Former Aussie vice-captain David Warner is reportedly set to return in field action after recovering from an elbow surgery.
Warner returned midway from the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) after hurting his elbow resulting in surgery later on.
According to Australia media revelations, the 32 year old although has not recovered fully but has passed fit enough to bat again.
He will return to competitive cricket on Saturday when he will represent Randwick-Petersham in Sydney’s Premier Cricket competition.
Warner along with former captain Steven Smith are expected to be a part of Australia’s World Cup campaign in the UK, beginning on June 1 against Afghanistan, cricket.co.au reported.
Australia national team coach Justin Langer said,
“They haven’t been good players, they’ve been great players for Australia. We are obviously monitoring them very closely and we are hopeful they will be getting themselves fit and strong and putting their name up for selection.”
“It’s an exciting time coming up,” Langer said.
Langer also said both of them are ready for appearing in the forthcoming Indian Premier League, “From all accounts they should both be ready for the IPL, which is really positive. Dave’s probably a little more advanced but my understanding is they’ll be ready to go in the not-too-distant future.”
Both the suspended duo had to return in the midst of the Bangladesh Premier League this season on account of elbow injuries.
Smith also underwent elbow surgery and recently made a return to the nets saying he was feeling good.
