Sore Warner will be right for Ashes opener


David Warner insists he’ll be fit for the Ashes opener after suffering a neck injury that left him “quite sore” and struggling to bat in the Gabba nets.

Comments Print article

Warner took part in fielding drills this morning but twinged his neck while taking a catch, immediately calling for assistance from the team physio.

Australia’s vice-captain attempted to bat after an extended break but lasted only two throwdowns before he trudged off to the rooms for treatment.

“My neck is quite stiff,” the aggressive opener said.

“Something twinged in my neck.

“I’m getting a bit of physio treatment at the moment and hopefully it settles down in the next 24 or 48 hours.

“I don’t think a sore neck is going to keep me out.”
