David Warner posted a photo of his three daughters posing with cricket bats, asking his fans to endorse the photo. “This caption?” Warner wrote in the caption as the daughters, Ivy-Mae, Indi-Rae and Isla Rose held bats and smiled at the camera. Warner also posted videos in his Instagram stories showing him playing cricket with the daughters, even as he recovers from a groin injury to be fit in time for the second Test against India starting December 26 in Melbourne.
Warner was injured in the one-day international series against India in November and has not been active since.
Australia defeated India in the first of four boundary-Gavaskar Tests series by eight wickets to take a 1-0 lead.
The day-night Test in Adelaide saw Matthew Wade and Joe Burns open the innings for Australia and one of them is likely to make way for Warner when the lefthanded returns in the second Test.
On the first test, India was also limited to their lowest ever test total of 36 for 9 – in fact 36 all with one batsman retired injured.
There will also be changes to the India playing XI in the Melbourne Test as Captain Virat Kohli left home on paternity leave and fast bowler Mohammed Shami reportedly suffered a fracture in his right arm while batting in the second innings in Adelaide. Shami will no longer participate in the series.
The second test will begin on Boxing Day and will be followed by the New Year’s test in Sydney on January 7 and the final test in Brisbane from January 15.
