Australia’s flamboyant opener David Warner has been ruled out of the side’s two test tour of Bangladesh next month. Warner broke him thumb when an incoming delivery from Steven Finn hit him in the second ODI at Lord’s. Warner retired hurt immediately and was always going to be a doubtful starter for the Bangladesh tour.

“It’s really disappointing,” Warner said. “I never want to miss a match for Australia but I’ll be doing everything I possibly can to get back as quickly as possible.” As a result of Warner being ruled out, and Chris Rogers calling it a day, Australia will have to search for a brand new opening pair in Bangladesh. This will provide the backup options such as Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch with a genuine chance to make a mark.

Pat Howard, Cricket Australia’s executive general manager said that Warner would be out for atleast six weeks. “David has been told that the fracture will take at least four weeks to stabilise and a further two weeks before he can start batting and catching again,” Howard said. “He will be reviewed by the specialist at the end of the month to determine when he can resume playing. “Ideally we’d like him to play the Sheffield Shield round beginning on 27 October as preparation for the New Zealand series.”

Warner’s absence also means that Australia will be without a vice captain for the Bangladesh tour. “When the selectors meet over the coming days to choose the squad for Bangladesh, they will be asked to nominate a vice-captain for that tour,” Howard said.
