“David Warner not certain for third Test” – Justin Langer

Australia’s coach Justin Langer said there is no certainty that Warner will be in shape for the 3rd Test against India. He is keeping his fingers crossed as far as the senior opener’s availability for the third test. Langer admitted to a host broadcaster,

”As we‘ve said for the last few weeks, there’s no-one more professional, and he’s (David Warner) doing everything possible (to get fit.) We saw him bat the day before the game. He’s batting again this afternoon here at the MCG. So in terms of his batting, he’s flying.”

Langer also added that David Warner is not perfectly fit as it seems warner is still struggling a bit while running between the wickets.

”He’s still having some trouble with his groin, and we know how dynamic he is, his running between the wickets, the way his movement’s all the time. So he’s getting closer, and we’re hopeful that he will come good. He’s certainly hopeful he’s going to come good, but time will tell. We still have a few more days till the next Test match. Fingers crossed he’s ready to go for that third Test match.”

We know David Warner suffers a groin injury during the 2nd ODI against India. He limped off the field in pain and hasn’t played any match since then.

The 34-year-old left-hand player played 16 Test matches against India and scored 1081 runs at an average Strike rate of 36.04, with four centuries and three fifties.
