David Warner races time for IPL 2024 start after adductor injury

All eyes will be on David Warner's recovery as the IPL and World Cup approach.

Delhi Capitals (DC) fans can breathe a sigh of relief as David Warner is expected to be fit for the start of the Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024) despite missing the final T20I against New Zealand due to an adductor injury.

David Warner likely for IPL 2024

David Warner, who sat out the second T20I as part of Australia’s rotation strategy, won’t feature in the series finale either. However, his recovery time is estimated at 7-10 days, ensuring his availability for the IPL starting next month.

This news comes as a welcome relief for both Warner and his fans, especially considering his upcoming retirement from international T20 cricket after the World Cup.

Smith Gets Another Chance:

In Warner’s absence, Steven Smith will likely open the batting again, aiming to solidify his spot in the World Cup squad. While Smith’s World Cup starting position remains uncertain, this match offers him another opportunity to impress.

Other Possible Changes:

Matt Short, who didn’t bat or bowl in the first match, might get another outing. Additionally, with the upcoming Test series looming, Mitchell Marsh could be rested, potentially leaving Matthew Wade as captain for the final T20I. Bowling changes are also expected, with Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood likely being replaced by Mitchell Starc and Spencer Johnson.

All eyes will be on David Warner’s recovery as the IPL and World Cup approach. While his absence from the final NZ T20I is a setback, the expected brief recovery period offers reassurance for his fans and teams.
