Although, David Warner has passed his fitness test, and he will be ready to open the innings for Australia. Usman Khawaja was the candidate to replace Warner, but he will again be on the bench. Khawaja boasts a remarkable record in pink-ball Tests having scored a century and two fifties from his seven innings.
“He’ll be right,” Cummins said about Warner.
“He’s played close to 90 Tests, I’m sure a lot of them have been played in discomfort or with (niggles) going into the game. He’ll be fine tomorrow.”
