Karachi, Oct 13: Australian team’s big-hitting opener David Warner has expressed confidence that he would be fit for next week’s first Test against Pakistan. David Warner has reportedly suffered a groin injury in the final ODI in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
Warner left the field in clear discomfort during the 35th over of Pakistan’s innings in Australia’s dramatic one-run victory that rounded out a 3-0 sweep of the series in the UAE.
According to a report, Warner said that he would need to work with team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris but thought that the injury would not prevent him taking his place in the side when the first of two Tests begins in Dubai on Wednesday.
Warner reportedly said that captain Michael Clarke and all rounder Mitch Marsh were also tracking well as they bid to return from hamstring injuries that ruled them out of the one-day series.
The batsman said that both Clarke and Marsh are both cruising along very well, they’re doing everything they can to be ready for the first test.
Australia’s victory over Pakistan on Sunday was reportedly secured when Glenn Maxwell bowled a double-wicket maiden in the final over of the match to dismiss the hosts for 230 in response to Australia’s 231 for nine.
