David Warner ruled out of the last T20I with an adductor injury.

David Warner ruled out of the last T20I with an adductor injury. It is expected that Warner will take seven to ten days to recover.

Ace Australia’s David Warner will miss the last T20I against New Zealand at Eden Park in Auckland due to an adductor injury. He is expect to restore fitness before the start of the 2024 Indian Premier League.

Warner did not play in the second match, which Australia won by 72 runs. Notably, the southpaw would need seven to 10 days to recuperate.

“Warner will require a brief recovery period which is not expect to affect his availability for the upcoming Indian Premier League leading into to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup,” according to a statement issued by Cricket Australia.

Warner struck 32 off 20 in the first T20I in Wellington, but the home crowd booed him as he left the field.

Warner mentioned the 2016 tour’s audience behavior at the start of the tour.

The 37-year-old’s bilateral international career has come to an end, and he will miss the final T20I against the hosts. He will formally retire from Australian cricket following the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup in June.

Steven Smith should resume his place at the top of the lineup now that Warner is absent. Smith hit 11 from 7 balls in the second T20I, including a stunning scoop for six, but Lockie Ferguson trapped him leg before wicket. Even if chosen, Smith is unlikely to start in the World Cup XI, as Warner, Travis Head, and Mitchell Marsh are likely to be the top three.

Matt Short, who did neither bat or bowl in the first match in Wellington, is expect to get another chance. Marsh might be rest ahead of the upcoming Test series, in which case wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade would lead the team. Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood, who play in the first two games, are expect to miss the final game and will be replace by Spencer Johnson and Mitchell Starc.
