David Warner Injury: The Australian opening batsman has reportedly suffered a knee injury during practice ahead of first Ashes 2019 Test.

Australia opening batsman David Warner has suffered a blow to his right knee while batting in the nets during the preparation for the first Test of the imminent Ashes 2019.

It is worth mentioning that Warner was included in Australia’s 17-member squad for the upcoming series. Having last played Test cricket during the infamous tour of South Africa, Warner was handed a Test comeback on the back of successful stints in the Indian Premier League and the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

If reports in Sky Sports are to be believed, Warner inside-edged a delivery on his right knee while batting in the nets. In an update which should come good for a lot of Australian fans is that the injury isn’t a substantial one and that Warner should be able to take field in the first Test at Edgbaston on August 1.

Having made his Test debut in 2011, 32-year old Warner has scored 6,363 runs at an average of 43.20 and a strike rate of 74.50 including 21 centuries and 29 half-centuries. With Australia yet to win an away Ashes series for plentiful years now, Warner’s form might play a huge role behind the same.
