David Warner is pretty much fine after the bouncer blow which he suffered during the inter-squad practice game between sides led by Steven Smith and Warner himself. The news was confirmed by Pat Cummins, who is playing the practice game in Darwin,

“He’s a little bit sore and stiff in the neck but, just speaking to him then, he’s all fine. It’s never the intent (to hit a batsman)… but it’s just one of those things that happen. It’s only a practice match, so he may or may not be out there tomorrow but he seems to be in pretty good shape,” Cummins told reporters at the end of the day.

Warner suffered a blow to his neck when a bouncer from Josh Hazlewood hit him. The left-handed batsman made an attempt to play a hook shot but missed the ball. He bends down after the ball hit him and removed his helmet soon.

Skipper Steven Smith and bowler rushed to the batsman to know about the situation and Warner soon got up and walked back in the dressing room along with the Physio. He is now fit and has recovered well from the blow.

This will be the first tour of Australia to Bangladesh after a period of 12 years. It was last in 2006 when Kangaroos landed on the Bangladesh soil to play a Test series, which they won under the captaincy of Ricky Ponting by a margin of 2-0. The Australian team was to travel the country in 2015 but withdrew at the eleventh hour due to security reasons.

Further, the Cricket Australia also withdrew their Under-19 team from the junior World Cup which was played in Bangladesh in 2016.

The Test series will start from August 27 with the first game to be played in Dhaka. The second Tests in Chittagong will mark an end to Australia’s short stay in the country.
