Warner ruled out of final T20I, but expected to be fit for start of IPL

David Warner can’t play the last T20I against New Zealand in Auckland because he hurt his adductor. But don’t worry, he should be okay for the IPL starting next month.


Warner didn’t play in the second match on Friday because the team planned for him to take a break during the series.


According to Cricket Australia, Warner needs a short time to recover. He should be fine for the Indian Premier League and the T20 World Cup later this year.


He might need about seven to ten days to get better. Missing the final match of the series means Warner won’t play any more international matches for Australia before the T20 World Cup in June. He scored 32 runs off 20 balls in the first game in Wellington but some people in the crowd weren’t happy with him. He mentioned earlier that he didn’t like how the crowd behaved during the 2016 tour.


With Warner out, Steven Smith will likely play at the top of the order. He made 11 runs off 7 balls in the second T20I. Even though he hit a great six, Lockie Ferguson got him out.


Smith might not start in the World Cup even if he’s picked. Warner, Travis Head, and Mitchell Marsh are expected to be the top three players.


Matt Short played in the first match but didn’t have to bat or bowl. He might get another chance to play. Marsh might take a break before the Test series, and Matthew Wade might lead the team.


Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood might not play in Sunday’s match. Mitchell Starc and Spencer Johnson might play instead.
