Warner to play two more BPL matches

After Steven Smith, his former deputy David Warner’s BPL journey is set to come to an abrupt end following the announcement of Cricket Australia which disclosed that an elbow injury will keep David Warner out of Sylhet Sixers' BPL campaign from January 21.

Warner will return to Australia where he is likely to need six weeks to recover from the injury. “David has reported some pain in his right elbow. He will return to Australia on January 21 to be assessed, but is expected to play in the remaining BPL matches until his return. We will have a clearer understanding of the extent of the injury once he has been assessed,” a CA spokesperson said.

Though Cricket Australia confirmed Warner’s status, Sylhet Sixers management chose to play hide and seek game and didn’t confirm whether Warner will play the last two matches in Sylhet, scheduled to be held on January 18 and 19.

Sylhet Sixers media manager though informed that the high us of the franchisee will call on a press conference to give more details on Warner, they at the eleventh hour called off it.

However sources inside the team revealed, Warner, who is the Sixers captain, will play matches for them, on January 18 and 19, before flying back home.

It will be a big blow for Sixers as Warner has been their second-highest run-scorer so far and they are placed second from bottom on the points table. Against defending champions Rangpur Riders on Wednesday night, Warner had also batted right-handed for three deliveries during his 36-ball 61 against Chris Gayle, hitting him for 6, 4 and 4.

Warner follows Steven Smith back to Australia after the Comilla Victorians captain was also ruled out due to an elbow injury. Unlike Smith, whose international return may be delayed because of his elbow surgery, Warner could still be on track to represent Australia as soon as his ban for ball-tampering finishes on March 28. Australia will take on Pakistan around that time in a one-day series which will potentially clash with the IPL, which will begin on March 23.
