Warner was forced to return from Bangladesh Premier League for assessing the elbow pain two days after former captain Steven Smith also suffered a similar kind of blow.

But pleasingly Warner’s injury has not been revealed as serious as the one sustained by Smith which hampers his (Smith) international comeback in the early stage.

Smith underwent surgery last week and is supposed to be in a brace for six weeks before undergoing extensive rehabilitation. The pair was suspended for 12 months for their involvement in the ball-tampering saga in South Africa last year, with the ban ending on March 29.

The injuries could hamper both players’ preparation for the World Cup. Smith will likely to miss the significant portion of the Indian Premier League and also one day series against Pakistan in April which will be Australia’s last international hit-out before the World Cup.

David Warner and Steven Smith had been enrolled in the Bangladesh Premier League for the first time. Warner was leading Sylhet Sixers while Smith was captaining Comilla Victorians.

The two franchise teams simultaneously suffered blows from missing two star cricketers within two days apart.
