David Warner says he will be ready for Boxing Day Test
Australia’s swashbuckling opener David Warner has said that he is recovering well from the thumb injury he sustained during second Test at Gabba and will surely be ready for the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne.
In the second innings of the Gabba Test, Warner got hit on his thumb of Ishant Sharma’s delivery and his participation in the Boxing Day Test doubtful. But while talking to the reporters on December 23rd, Warner assured that he is not going to miss the Melbourne Test.
“I will definitely be playing – I will be doing everything I can.
“Obviously it’s a bit painful, it’s the one I broke before, but I’m not missing a Boxing Day Test, that’s for sure.”
Warner was one of the important factors in Australia’s Test win at Adelaide. He scored centuries in both the innings of that Test to guide his team to a 48-run victory. With Mitchell Marsh out due to hamstring injury and Shane Watson and Shaun Marsh not in best of their forms, Warner will have to support skipper Steven Smith well if Australia are to post a big total in Melbourne.
